#093 Healthy Eating Habits For Teens
Many teens are preoccupied with body image and girls especially can be obsessed with weight loss. In this episode we focus on health gain. A majority of weight and health issues are caused by unhealthy eating habits started in the teen years. Teens can get caught in that dieting and deprivation cycle, which can be extremely unhealthy. The goal is to interrupt those unhealthy habits as a teen so they don’t follow them into adulthood.
