Alert mother takes action to change textbook for teens with unscientific and harmful content on dieting

F.E.A.S.T. families are talking about a parent advocate in Newfoundland Canada who took action on antiquated and unscientific textbook content:

“The mother was disturbed by a case study in “Healthwise 1″ about a 13-year-old girl who was attempting to lose 13 pounds in four weeks. The case study said she had been skipping meals and snacks and successfully lost weight doing so, but ended up gaining back two pounds, causing her to abandon her diet. The exercise for the kids was to brainstorm ways for the girl to return to her diet plan.”
