Product Description

In this lesson students will analyze a teenage boy named Joe's unhealthy eating. (he's having a Snickers candy bar, pizza, bread sticks, etc.) Students will be able to choose from Joe's whole daily food intake what he should cut to drop 500 calories a day, thus losing a lb. a week.

This is a great way for students to see that cutting 500 calories can be a realistic way to lose weight (some students will realize that Joe could just eat half the box of Mac n' Cheese he's having for a snack and that would equal 500 calories and that is a realistic adjustment in life!).

Included in this lesson are complete step-by-step directions and a 42-Slide PowerPoint I use to go with it. The PowerPoint includes: an explanation of calories, the formula to figure out how many calories they should eat, negative aspects of dieting, the difference good food choices can make, and the importance of exercise.

----------------------------------------------------------------

I have another follow-up lesson you can purchase that has Joe focusing on eating healthier (since dropping calories will cause weight loss, but does not insure healthy eating) and students will use the Mayo Clinic's Food Guide Pyramid to make sure Joe gets all his food groups for the day. It's called "A Fun Way to Learn How to Eat from All Food Groups in PDF + Word":
