Talking to teens about weight loss tied to unhealthy dieting, laxative use
from Reuters via Fox News
Teens were more likely to diet and use other unhealthy measures to control their weight when their parents talked to them about losing weight or the importance of being thin, in a new study. Conversely, family conversations about healthy eating that did not involve the topic of weight were linked to fewer unhealthy behaviors, such as laxative use and skipping meals — especially among heavier adolescents.
