Teens participating in a pilot obesity program at Tamarac Center for Health & Well-Being in Fremont, Mich., lost an average of 32.5 pounds through a closely monitored diet and exercise. Registered dietitian Cathy Gragg says the program looked at peer pressure and sedentary lifestyles and aimed for weight loss of 1 to 2 pounds per week because the children are still growing.
