Fat Camps Do Not Help Encourage Kids To Adopt Healthy Habits

To be more aware of what you are eating and the amount of how much you eat can help guide you to a healthier lifestyle.  Fat camps do not contribute to healthy habits, their main goal is strictly weight loss.

Typically you should write down what foods, drinks and portion sizes of what you are eating each day during meals and even during snack time.  When you keep a journal of what you are eating you can reflect on your downfalls, and make yourself more aware of your weakness foods.  Fat camps serves smaller portions with a calorie limit that is not enough for the body to function well throughout the day.

We tend to eat in front of a TV screen most of the time. You higher chances of overeating if you are eating while watching TV.  If we are focusing on other things we won’t realize if our bodies are full or hungry.  Try to stay aware of where, what, and how you eat to identify if you are full.

When we are upset, bored, or sad we tend to look for food for comfort.  Do not let your emotions decide whether you should eat.  Only eat when you are truly hungry.

Fat camps do not help the future of their campers.  They do not educate them how to eat properly or give advice about changing behaviors because of the weight loss.  Campers end up returning summer after summer because they did not maintain a healthy weight after they left camp.
