In a world of fad diets, super thin people, and obesity, it’s hard to feel good about your body.  For some people, it’s even harder to find the weight that suits them best.  In this book, the author stresses the importance of losing weight to please yourself instead of the people around you, educates readers about proper nutrition, and shows the importance of exercise.  She addresses the problems with fad diets and eating disorders, as well as why it’s harder for females to lose weight then it is for males.

This book would be very helpful for teens looking for the correct and healthy way to lose weight and keep it off.  With the exercise and nutrition advice, it’s not difficult to find a way to do it.  There are many helpful suggestions throughout the book to keep you motivated and thinking realistically.  Many teens, who are struggling with their weight, will be sure to find the correct way to lose weight, or just become healthier with this book.

I thought that many of the suggestions in “Safe Dieting for Teens” seemed like things that the average teen would be able to do.  It gave very simple suggestions on many different topics.  I would recommend this book to any teen looking for a solution to their weight problems.  Patience is definitely needed to get through this book, since it’s not quite the action-packed book that you’d expect from a topic like this.  I believe that anyone who’s dedicated to losing weight the correct way will find this book completely helpful and will find their perfect way to lose all their weight.
