lots of reasons children are overweight, but for the word GROSSLY overweight doesn't help our kids feel better about theirselves or even give them the boost they need to start a healthy diet. My daughter is overweight, and she has been working really hard on changing her eating habits, and exercise, we don't use the word or words like overweight or fat, just better eating habits. she now has lose 15 Pounds. So where can you go to get advice about earing better meals??? trust me i have looked and all that i have searched wants to charge you.

And knowing that corn and soy are either Genetically Engineered or Genetically Modified... you know the answer... SUGAR is the real culprit in addition to fats. SUGAR is the major hidden cause of High Cholesterol. And because low fat diet won't address this problem focus should be on hidden sugars.
Sugar in food products can appear under deceptive names like dextrose - see side effects... glucose polymers... maltodextrins and also Carbohydrates. In addition, starchy foods like potatoes, bread, pastry, noodles etc. can easily turned into sugars... It is normal. What is not normal how body is handling that extra sugar.
Dextrose side effects are here:
