Being a teenager is hard. It can be rough going to school and figuring life out, even without other major problems. When a teenager is struggling with being overweight or with obesity, it can make regular life even harder. They may be dealing with bullies, or pressure from friends and family to lose the weight. They may also feel embarrassed, not knowing where to ask for help. Here at Rites of Passage NW, we have weight loss programs for kids in North America – USA that can help overweight teens not only feel better about themselves, but keep the weight off.
We have three major components to our program, and consider ourselves not to be a traditional fat camp. While we do focus on diet and exercise, we also focus on mental health, and spiritual and mental well-being. Teens will attend both group and individual sessions to help get at the root of obesity, and tackle anxiety and depression.
We also feel that by getting in touch with nature, great things can be accomplished. For this reason, we do not engage in a lot of “traditional” exercise, but instead go on hiking treks and adventures. Losing weight doesn’t have to be boring or mundane. We teach that it can be fun.
We also spend a lot of time focusing on diet. While here, teens will eat only our holistic foods. While it does take getting used to, teens do love to look and feel better after several weeks eating delicious healthy food.
