How Can I Feel Better About My Body? Listen Do you ever wish you were as thin as a model or as strong as your favorite pro football player? Maybe you wish you were taller or just shaped a little differently. Those thoughts are a natural part of growing up. But learning what you can and can't change about your body and appearance is part of growing up, too. No Magic Potion If you wish you could change the way you look, you might want to talk with your mom, dad, or a trusted adult about what is bothering you. This can be a confusing time in your life. And there aren't any magic potions or special exercises that can rush it along. If you are concerned about your weight, your mom or dad might want to take you to visit your doctor. Food and Fitness Eating healthy foods and being physically active can make all kids feel better about their bodies. Watching TV and playing computer games can be fun, but it doesn't do much for your body because your body stays still. Kids (and grown-ups!)

Ptak Science Books Benefits of Exercise for Children » Take The Magic Step® Get-up and Go! By Uta Pippig Trampoline Boy © Betty Shepherd Trampoline Boy © Betty Shepherd Our children are our future—and understanding and supporting their natural yearning for physical activity will help lead them to a lifetime of happy and healthy living. Among the many benefits are physical fitness, confidence and stronger self-esteem, more energy, better memory, and simply a good feeling about themselves—and they are easy to achieve. Our “Children’s Fitness and Health Program” is geared towards parents and educators, and focuses on creative ways to incorporate exercise into our children’s everyday routine. To emphasize once again the importance of exercise, I have put together some of the health benefits an active child can expect. Exercise Improves Physical Health Long-term health benefits of exercise are: A stronger immune system!

Holistic Living Nutrition » Take The Magic Step® Nourish Your Body Nature intended food to be the source of nutrients we need for growth and energy. But today, the Westernized culture more often promotes convenience over essential health benefits. As a result, we sometimes wind up depleting, rather than boosting, our overall energy and health. The articles on this site translate information that is often confusing into accessible and relevant tips that can help you have more—and sustained—energy throughout the day. By learning to incorporate better nutrition into your daily lifestyle, you may be surprised to discover that good nutrition is often more about organization and knowledge than of time.

Ask An MD Exercise BMI (body mass index) A graph of body mass index as a function of body mass and body height is shown above. The dashed lines represent subdivisions within a major class. For instance the "Underweight" classification is further divided into "severe", "moderate", and "mild" subclasses.[1] The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a measure for human body shape based on an individual's mass and height. Devised between 1830 and 1850 by the Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet during the course of developing "social physics",[2] it is defined as the individual's body mass divided by the square of their height – with the value universally being given in units of kg/m2. † The factor for United States customary units is more precisely 703.06957964, but that level of precision is not meaningful for this calculation. The BMI is used in a wide variety of contexts as a simple method to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height.
