Divorce, buffets, and weight gain

My two patients age 15 and 13 who are overweight reported today that since mom and dad are separated, dad takes them out to the Chinese buffet. At buffets, portion control is especially difficult. Yet, I’m proud to report that each child lost at least two pounds in the last month, despite the buffet. This shows that even one day a week of excess, can still result in weight loss

No weight plan is perfect, and we must allow for slight indulgences, however, they should be treats and not everyday occurences.

I will report further when they come back for month two of weight and nutritional rehab.
