Hi, I'm from the Philippines. My son is 10 years old, about 5 ft. and weighs 150 lbs. He is about 30 lbs. overweight. He really enjoys eating and at a young age already enjoys gourmet food including sashimi. Do you know a weight loss program that would enable him to enjoy eating at the same time allow him to lose weight? I know that's silly but he's just a child and I don't want to put him in a great deal of pressure about his weight. He's not really insecure but I'm sure he will be when he reaches 12 or 13 so I want to do something about it now. Help!

become more active with him. make him burn off the calories he consumes with fun activities- he might be regretful in the beginning but when he becomes more fit it'll be more fun for him and it'll help you stay in ahape also...
