5 years ago I committed myself to learn why my kindergarten daughter, Katie, weighed over 100 pounds! She was on year round swim team, 2 soccer teams, 2 basketball teams, softball, ballet and gymnastics. We did not buy sodas and sugary foods. The doctors’ advice was always the same, “get less sugar and get her more active”. We were already doing that, so I had her tested for every metabolic syndrome I could find. All her tests were “normal”.
I attended the American Society of Bariatric Physicians conferences looking for someone to help me with Katie. Everything I learned was in stark contrast to what I was doing in our home. I have now attended over 300 hours of lectures and at no point do any of the weight loss specialists argue why everyone is overweight today.
