A NEW META-ANALYSIS, INCLUDING 200,000 PEOPLE, FINDS THAT FAMILY MEALS HELP FIGHT OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY IN KIDS. THE FAMILY MEAL OFFERS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE, COMMUNICATE GOOD HABITS AND TO ENJOY HEALTHIER FOOD
Eat-less-of and give-up-on diet advice is really sad to hear and tough to follow. We hate when things we like are taken away from us, especially when it comes to favorite treats like cookies, ice cream and French fries.
That’s why I’m fond of weight control advice that emphasizes what we should be doing more of, especially if that new habit can be pleasurable.
