Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
I really need support and solutions. I have the sweetest 11 year old boy. He is intellectually gifted and does well in sports. He is kind and thoughtful and he is also 142 pounds. His doctor is very concerned about him. I am about 75% raw, but my little sweetheart never wants anything to do with my raw food because he prefers white flour and sugar instead. I have not pushed and only offered my raw food but now, it has become urgent that we help his little body lighten it's load. His resting heart rate is 110! I took mine and it was in the 80's. The doctor did a full blood panel to check cholesterol, blood sugar, etc. I am planning on mandating green smoothies, salads, Vitamineral green capsuls, and walks with Mom when I get home from work every day. I am prepared that this is going to be tough as my little one hates veggies. I am wishing upon a star to find a medical professional that has experience with childhood obesity and has a history of treating successfully with a mostly raw food diet. I have been all over the internet and can find nothing:(Just traditional nutritionists who want to put him on a diet. Can anyone at the Hab point me in the right direction? I cannot be the first person that wants to treat childhood obesity with raw food....
