A study in Pediatrics revealed that overweight or obese teen girls who underwent a behavioral program that offered separate training for their parents attained slightly lower BMIs compared with those who received typical weight-loss advice. It is more common to treat whole families together. Teens in the behavior-modification program also reported having a better body image and healthier eating habits, suggesting that a teen-centered weight-loss approach may yield positive results.
