Children who may be struggling with obesity, body image issues, or self esteem concerns due to their weight may benefit from a weight loss camp. These camps work through a dedicated program of diet, exercise, and education. Staying healthy and fit can be difficult, and sometimes children need a new environment for the education, nutrition, fitness, and motivation to live at a healthy weight. Fat camps work to help kids lose weight and keep it off through a combination of fitness, nutrition, and education. They have proven to be effective not just for losing weight during the weeks at camp, but also for helping the weight stay off upon returning home.
What It's Really Like to Attend Fat Camp | Teen Vogue
Call us at or Our program provides exercise, emotional support, and rap sessions where the girls learn to eat correctly while improving their self-esteem. The girls learn about menu planning, and how to eat 3 nutritious portion-controlled meals and two snacks daily, so they apply them to real-life situations like dining out, healthy snacking at home and at school, along with tips for healthy holiday eating. We offer a fun, supportive program, —everyone participates—no one sits on the sidelines.
What I Learned From Summers at Fat Camp
Teens are spending more and more time after school on the computer or in front of the TV. They also tend to have more freedom in making food choices for meals and snacks outside of the home. Unhealthy behaviors can easily continue into adulthood and increase risk for health problems associated with excess weight.
Often, these images are simply unrealistic. The direct link between obesity and self-esteem has been well established. For girls especially, we see a correlation with low self-esteem, depression, disordered eating, anxiety, social isolation and more. Self-esteem is an important determinant of adolescent development and mental health.
