Diets in Review Question

Will the lemonade diet help a teen?

Autumn asked this question Apr 2nd, 2012 5:26 am

Hi, i'm 14. I am 5'0 and 121 lbs. My doctor told me to watch my weight, at that time I was 132. I lost 11 pounds but need to keep going. I lost that weight at an outdoorsy camp that also had a diet of freakn cardboard and rice noodels. I'm very active, exercise a lot, and am on a year round cheer team. I eat healthy and have cut soda out of my diet. This fast seems like the only way to lose weight.

The Lemonade Diet, also called the Master Cleanse, is not necessary. Very low calorie diets can lead to headaches, irritability, fatigue, muscle breakdown, and nutrient deficiencies. Use your desire to manage your weight as an opportunity to examine your personal food and activity patterns. Keep those habits that work in your favor and change any that do not.
