How To Lose Weight Fast
April 10, 2011 by Post Team
She reduced their consumption of pop from two to three cans per day. She is cutting portions and slow while eating.
“When you’re eating too fast, makes you think she is still hungry,” Lewis said, explaining a nutrition fact that he learned a couple of weeks earlier. “I’ve cut on the ranch too.”
He paused and took a long drink from her water bottle.
“And be sure to drink water when you do.”
After weeks of working out and see what I ate, Lewis had not lost weight. With only a few weeks of the program Take It Off, Lewis wanted to make her efforts count.
The program connects students at Kelly Walsh High School with a personal trainer, a dietitian, a counselor and a gym. Students voluntarily commit to the program of 10 weeks with doctor’s approval. Services and cost about per week, but a scholarship and gym memberships donated by Kelly Walsh Flex Complex allowed students to participate at no cost.
Kelly Walsh piloted the program in the fall of with great results: all students’ participants lost weight; she lost percent body fat, increased school attendance. Eight students are participating in this semester. One has lost at least pounds, a requirement of its goal of joining the Air Force.
Not all students lost big, but that was not the ultimate goal of the program, Bennett said Britain, nutritionist working with students.
“If they lose weight, which is a bonus, but is really about changing habits that they’ve built,” said Bennett.
Students learn time management and that the exercise is a healthy way of dealing with stress, said Jesse Espinosa, personal trainer program. Students who miss more than three sessions are asked to leave the program, but Espinosa not want that to happen.
“Even if they come twice a week, even on foot with something,” said Espinosa. “It takes weeks to develop the habit and this is how long I have. Let them go at their own pace.”
Bennett discusses the major issues, such as body image and how to eat better during the holidays, with students as a group once a week. She meets with them individually to review their food diaries and discuss the habits and goals.
Stay on track is difficult because teenagers do not usually do the shopping or preparing food and eating out and eating fast food with friends.
“There are young adults, and very set in their habits,” said Bennett. “If we catch them before the primary or secondary school, we can make a better impact.”
Building self-esteem and positive body image has been difficult, said participants Mystic Smith, and Morgan Strang, 15. Friends jokingly called each other “fat” and “fat”, but realized their mocking actually lowered.
“Now I say, ‘I feel so fat today, I look pretty,’” Strang said. “From the first day I went to kindergarten so far I’ve been an overweight child. I’m done with it.”
Smith and Strang said there are a lot of pressure to be thin and healthy, but barriers such as fast food and video games in the way.
The friends cannot understand, but other students take It Off support.
“I want to be healthy,” said Smith. “This really helps.”
