Important nutritional and weight loss information from your pediatrician Dr. Hanna Lesicka

To stay healthy and not gain too much weight you need to:

  • Stop drinking soda, soft drinks, iced tea and all fruit juices.
  • Drink only low fat milk and water.
  • Avoid all foods with High Fructose Corn Syrup as an ingredient (It causes you to feel hungry all the time).
  • Eat a lot of vegetables, fruits, and nuts instead of bread, rice, pasta, and pizza.
  • Eat meat (beef, pork, chicken) and dairy products – it gives you protein necessary for growth.
  • Avoid salty foods like chips, French fries.
  • Eat 5 smaller meals per day to avoid being too hungry or too full. Remember to eat breakfast.
  • Exercise intensively for 20 minutes at least three times a week.
