Balanceme Summer Weight Loss Camps Supports National Nutrition Month

BalanceME Offers Family Food Tips to Encourage Everyone to Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day

Asheville, NC (PRWEB) March 27, 2013

BalanceME, one the countrys leading summer weight loss camps[1], proudly joins the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics during March in celebrating National Nutrition Month. This years National Nutrition Month theme is Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day and encourages everyone to develop a healthful eating plan that incorporates individual food choices and preferences.

In our experience, teens, young adults, and often parents really struggle to understand calorie content and portions sizes, commented John Taylor, BalanceMEs chairman of board of directors. In our summer weight loss camps[2] we take recipes our campers are familiar with and teach them how to change ingredients to make it a healthier option. Those types of dietary changes tend to be easier and more effective than drastically overhauling diets.

BalanceMEs campers had the highest reported weight loss of any summer weight loss camp[3] in 2012, with campers averaging 4.25 lbs lost per week. BalanceMEs proprietary Health Score measures cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, resting pulse rate, cardiovascular fitness and strength, along with a variety of other medical and emotional measures. This Health Score gives campers an overall picture of health and shows health gains beyond just the number on the scale.

Our Nutrition and Culinary approach helps families with better nutrition choices that meet their health goals, continued Mr. Taylor, The best way to make healthier choices is to find healthier foods you love prepared in healthier ways while trying new foods and preparing them in different ways to find how you like them.

Here are a few tips BalanceME’s expert staff summer weight loss camps[4] offers to families to help them Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day:

Involve the kids. Do you have a kid that doesnt like any food or wont try anything? Involve them in the preparation. Let them listen to their music or talk about what they want to talk about to make it fun for them.

  • Good Health is the Reward: We encourage families not to hold dessert up as the ultimate food. If we say eat all of this to get that then we are implying this food isnt as good desirable as that food. Make healthy habits the reward or have other small rewards for your kids besides getting dessert or going for ice cream.

As part of this public education campaign, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics National Nutrition Month website includes a variety of helpful tips, fun games, promotional tools and nutrition education resources, all designed to spread the message of good nutrition around the Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day theme.

    Weight Loss Tips And Help On Loosing Weight Ready For Prom? Im 15 and hopefully going to prom in the first week of July, as im British we only get 1 prom so its really important to me that i look nice 🙂
    Im very overweight at the moment, last week i weighed 12stone 9lbs (177 pounds) and now i weigh 12 stone 5lbs (173 pounds) but i know it won’t be like this every week.

      First off, have a great time at the prom! Secondly, you want to get to that lower weight doing it healthy. 1200 is a reasonable amount of calories, but I’m pretty sure those calories are not coming from all the nutrients your body needs. You don’t want your weight loss coming to a crashing halt! I know all about the crazy diets out there. You don’t have to spend ANY money on a quick fix or gimmick that may not work or work only for a few weeks. I have been on a natural eating plan and I lost 50 pounds in about 5 months. You’re younger, it may be faster. I also incorporated lots of exercise to burn more fat. This way of eating is called Paleo, or the Cave Diet. Eat everything your ancestors ate! If mother nature made it, eat it, if man made it, don’t touch it! It’s as simple as that. Go to the Cave Diet link below. You will lose weight, feel happier, glow from the inside out. Good luck!

      Drink more and more water and don’t eat oily and junk food . Walking, gymnastic and dancing are good way to reduce weight. You will achieve your desired weight in some days.. Keep going..
