It’s a sensitive subject. And it’s one I was a little hesitant to talk about but I think it’s really important and sometimes we just need to rip the band-aid off to let the wound heal. This episode, we’re diving into the subject of childhood obesity, and how as parents and working with doctors we can help coach kids in a more positive way. Today I am interviewing Dr. Sheila Carroll, a mom, pediatrician and an obesity medicine physician as well as the life and weight coach. She works with the parents of the kids who struggle with their extra weight so that parents can create a healthy lifestyle through nutrition, sleep, movement and emotional regulation skills, which ends up helping the whole family and improving the family’s wellbeing. This episode, we’re focusing on those lifestyle habits that can make a big difference! We live in a time right now where 1 out of 3 children are considered obese, and life expectancy of this generation will not exceed their parents’ generation, and that is the first time in history that this has happened. I know that together we can make a big difference – we just need to talk about it in a methodical, logical and mature way, without inflaming anyone and I hope you’ll find that this interview will do just that. Let’s dig in; and listen; and ACT. Because we need to make a difference!
