Weight Loss & Pre-Teens

Researchers at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health have found that nearly 30 percent of 234 Girl Scouts surveyed had tried to lose weight. The girls were approximately 10 years old.

Most reported trying healthy methods to lose weight, such as increasing their levels of exercise and decreasing their consumption of high-fat foods, but 12 girls said they took diet pills, purged or used laxatives to drop weight.

The study results appear in the March 2003 issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion.

"Weight preoccupation in pre-pubertal girls is a concern because dieting at this age can impact growth and may increase risk for fatigue, irritability and low self-esteem, depression and eating disorders," said Nancy Sherwood, the study's lead author.

The girls expressed dissatisfaction with their stomachs and thighs and more than 25 percent agreed that "pictures of thin girls and women make me wish I were thin."

Weight Loss & Weight Management
An increase in physical activity is an important part of your weight loss program. Physical activity improves your muscle/fat ratio - thus raising metabolism for easier weight loss - and boosts your motivation to maintain the weight you lose.
