Exceptional  Aug 20, 2006
The book is straight forward, Factual, and has changed our eating habits. You will be blessed , as well as your kids by reading this book. Read this book for your kids and yourself!!
Extremely useful resource for my family  Mar 24, 2006
This book has been an extremely useful resource for my family. "Food for Thought" and "Recipe for Success" highlight boxes made this book very easy reading to skim through and eye-opening stories about real people made it a book I read from cover to cover. I refer to the corresponding web site regularly. It is a real asset for my family's use of the book's eight-week plan to reduce our weight.
Plenty of facts and figures  Oct 9, 2005
Obesity in America is of epidemic proportions. This fact is easily affirmed with a quick look on a crowded street. Research shows not only are more people overweight or obese, the overweight keep piling on the pounds. Sadly, this phenomenon is not just an adult problem. In the book SuperSized Kids How To Rescue Your Child From The Obesity Threat, Walt Larimore, M.D., and Sherri Flynt explore the medical consequences of obesity in today's youth and offer their medical experiences, both personal and clinical, as they attempt to tackle this worldwide crisis. Obesity does not discriminate. In fact, as this book so adeptly explains, obesity affects all persons, individually and as a society. The negative health impact is globally catastrophic in addition to financially devastating. Larimore and Flynt, with the use of reality-based case in points, attempt to explain the ravages this disease presents while offering thier medical expertise to assure us this trend can be reversed. With simple medical terminology and easy to follow lifestyle changes, these dedicated professionals make eradicating childhood obesity seem like a real possibility. While exposing probable causes of obesity, the authors are quick to point out modern luxuries and conveniences as the likeliest culprits. Except, instead of assigning blame to society and culture alone, they lay the responsibility and recovery at the feet of the individual. If the purpose of this book is to explain what obesity is, what it does, and how to prevent it, that goal was certainly attained. Larimore and Flynt give the reader every reason to be concerned and become proactive with the weight, current and future health of our next generation.

SuperSized Kids How To Rescue Your Child From The Obesity Threat is one of many books tackling the issue of childhood obesity available today. Written to appeal to parents and caregivers, it sometimes uses over the top scare tactics to get the reader's attention. Although easy to read, the layout is a bit distracting with the pages having sidebars of Recipe For Success, Fifty Ways to SuperSize Your Kids, and/or Food For Thought. Using real life stories to emphasize the subject matter is usually a positive tool used by authors. This book employs too many. Parents who have children struggling with weight want answers and solutions, not necessarily a support group of unknowns. They already know they belong to an ever growing population and if they are reading this book, they are making strides to escape from it. From a clinical viewpoint, this books supplies plenty of facts and figures. What it doesn't do, is make them interesting. With so many other books available with the same subject matter, I suggest looking for another.

super sized kids  Sep 26, 2005

A Must Get Book!  Aug 26, 2005
I was able to read this book before it came out to the public and do the program layed out in the back. I have to say, it is OUTSTANDING! This book was my last resort before giving up all together. My husband, son and I are all way overwieght and have been on the diet rollercoaster for years. I really was scared for my son, being only 6 years old, I felt it was up to me to get things under control. This book is not like anything you will ever read when it comes to diets. It dosent tell you to stop everything and eat just grass! It is laid out to where you do things a little at a time, like the first week all you just reduce the the amount of fast food you would normaly get, along with switching from a large plates to a small one. I am proud to say that by the end of the 8 week, we as a family lost 28 pounds, dont eat red meat, or drink caffeine at all, and have reduced our TV time,weeat as a family and we are much more active! If you want to save your childs life, and the heart ache of being overwieght or you want to improve your own life through better habits, All I can Say is GET THIS BOOK!! It will make a world of difference.
