I’m Like, So Fat!

Hit the gym for a workout–but sit for hours at your computer. Supersize your value meals–but downsize your waistline. Today’s media-saturated teenagers are bombarded with mixed messages that distort their self-image and lead many to overeat and others to starve themselves.

Author: Dianne Neumark-Sztainer ISBN 1-57230-980-6

With I’m, Like, SO Fat! Dr. Dianne Neumark-Sztainer shows parents how to strike the difficult balance between bolstering self-esteem and offering constructive advice. Drawing on her landmark study, Project EAT (Eating Among Teens), and her experience as a mother of four, Neumark-Sztainer offers a wealth of science-based, practical ideas for instilling healthy eating and exercise habits, educating teens about nutrition and portion size, and talking about body image.

Here is a rock-solid foundation that parents everywhere can build on to help their teens stay fit, eat well, and feel good about their looks in a world where too-perfect bodies are used to sell everything from cosmetic surgery to fast food.
