Childhood obesity and the solution to it!.

So this is an update to our previous article on childhood obesity and what the solution to it is!.

So usually it starts with the child becoming used to eating and drinking a lot of sugar at an early age.



So very often when the child is 3 years old, he or she gets the taste for sugar and fat in combination of fast carbs and from there on it is a slipper slope, once the child (gets addicted) to the fat and sugar intake on a daily basis.

For parents the solution is quote simple and you need to be an adult here, and there is no excuse that you are poor or uneducated, you know that feeding your kids Pizza, Burgers, Chicken nuggets, chips, soda,ice-cream is not the way to go.

And we have told you in the past that even when you shop at Walmart and not whole foods you can still feed your children very well at a lower cost than you think.

The whole reason why food and drinks with a high sugar intake is cheap, is the amount of sugar in it!.

Incredible breakfast.
Best breakfast with an added protein shake to go.


So start off your children with oatmeal(oatmeal water mixed in a Micro Way for 2 min) and sugar free blueberry soup, one slice of toast and glass of organic freshly squeeze orange juice, you press it at home or you buy it fresh.

Then add a protein shake and a multivitamin tab to that, and your child is good to go.

This breakfast here is less than 2 dollars per child, and it contain together with the multivitamin tab all that your child needs nutrient wise, to last the hole day.

Then if your child is forced to eat a high sugar high fat lunch at school or at day care, then at least make sure that the dinner is of high quality.

perfect meal
Chicken breast, walnuts, broccoli.


So this is then a good type of dinner for your growing child, we have cocked potatoes, chicken breast, walnuts and carrots and broccoli.

A sugar free lemonade or a sugar free soda is acceptable for the child with the dinner, water is of course better, but this is a give and take even if you are the parent and you should be in charge of the household.

And 1h before bed the child can get a casein protein shake cookie dough for instance as pudding, so you add less water and then you put in the freezer for 30 min prior to serving.

So the best way as a parent to avoid getting your children hooked on sugar and fat is to avoid having them at home period!.

So no candy, no soda, no fried fast food and no tv-dinners.

Some parents will say what about me?, i like to eat a donut or drink a soda in the evening.

Then make it simple for yourself, have that in the garage and when your children are sleeping you can have that.

But parents have to stop being so weak when it comes to child obesity.

We know that fat cells accumulated for children under 10 will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

Why would you as a parent set your child up for a massive failure in life?.

Make sure that when your child is born that you read up on nutrient intake,  make sure that your home is also child proofed nutrient wise both on the food and the drink side.

So take care out there and as some of our readers know we have a children’s chapter in our book at AMAZON see the link below to it.

Mental illness and training.

Mental illness and training is a topic that a lot of people avoid talking about, due to its very sensitive nature.

We have had and we have clients that are suffering from either mental illnesses or depression symtoms.

Mental illness.

When we take on a client either online or in real life, we go over their overall health situation including mental health.

Often people who are suffering from mental health issues and depression type of issues have a tendency to overeat and usually they overeat on fast food.


So what we keep an eye out for is when a client misses more than one training session in a short time frame, and we know that there are some mental health issues in the past that they have been dealing with.

What we do then is that the trainer goes and rings the doorbell and asks the client the simple question of, how are you doing?.

And then the second thing that the trainer says, is that come on, get dressed we are going out for a walk(usually 1h-1.5h) and then if we feel that the client is up for it we do some burpees and some push ups on top of the walking.

So the one thing we are afraid of in our society these days is to get involved in other peoples life, unless it is online and we can hide behid a screen.

Anybody can go and ring the doorbell of a friend who they know have mental issues or depression problems and take them out on a walk.

It is so important to break the cycle of the person feeling bad, just sitting at home self medicating with food.

So get involved, care, reach out, it is better to care to much than not care at all.

We know that many personal trainers tries to avoid getting to personal with a client, and dating a client is a given no no, but going home to a client suffering from mental illness and depression is another thing many trainers do not feel comfortable in doing.

Maybe you need a bit of life experience if you are goanna do this, but you should care about the overall health of your client as a personal trainer.


When you have some experience form training people who suffer from mental illness and depression you pick up on the signs when they start to get some issues, and we are very quick to act on that.

There is no doubt that training shortens the episodes and can also stop people from falling into a deeper depression.

And training has tremendous benefits compared to being on medication.

Then a lot of the issues with medication is that some of them have bad side affects like slowing down your normal metabolism, and then you need to re-do your calorie intake when you are on medication to add more fat and protein based nutrient sources, and cut down a lot on the carbs.

We are not telling people not to consume medication, but many times in our society we try and medicate everything with big pharma, rather than doing more of mindfulness exercises and training to lift up the own well being hormone endorphins.

So try and keep people who are suffering mentally from closing themselves in to their homes, and get them out on walks so they get some fresh air and leave the home.

As always you can find our blueprint program in our book on Amazon in the lin here below.

And if you are looking for online training , then you can buy that in our shop in the link here below.

Take care out there.
