Litfuse Review: Who's the New Kid? by:Heidi Bond

Who's the New Kid?: How an Ordinary Mom Helped Her Daughter Overcome Childhood Obesity-- And You Can, Too!
About the Book:
At nine years old, Breanna Bond weighed a whopping 186 pounds. Just walking up the stairs to her room was a challenge. Her legs chafed to the point of bleeding from rubbing against each other, and her school days were filled with taunts of “Hey, Fatty!” Breanna’s mom, Heidi, was devastated and wondered, "How can I get my daughter healthy again?"

Who’s the New Kid? shows readers how Heidi helped her daughter lose weight without the aid of fad diets, medication, or surgery and how other parents can do the same with their kids.

In just over a year, Heidi’s plan worked! Breanna dropped 40 percent of her body weight and was transformed from a morbidly obese child who spent her days in front of the TV eating chips and chocolate to a vibrant, healthy, energetic little girl.

Filled with helpful diagnostic tools, easy-to-make recipes, eye-opening nutritional information, fun exercise ideas, and practical tips and advice, Who’s the New Kid? will not only show parents how to help their kids lose weight naturally but also introduce them to simple, yet effective lifestyle changes that will benefit the entire family.
  

My Review:
 For those of us that have children that weight issues, it's real hard to keep them motivated. It is also hard when you are accustomed to dieting for adults to rear that around and create something for a child. something that helps them get healthy more than just dropping a few pounds. Who's the New Kid?, is an excellent book to get you started on the right path. Heidi Bond, was at her wits end trying to figure out a method that would work for her daughter Breanna. But when Breanna topped the scales at 186 pounds, she knew something had to be done to help her child.

 Complete with menu plans and exercise schedules the author has also provided you with a few recipes to get you started. I love the fact that she shared her own struggles and those of her daughter. We all that know obesity have experienced a few if not all of the same struggles. I myself made it point to make sure my children get plenty of exercise and it really seems to be paying off. This book is full of life changing information and is a must read.
