    Ew Rami is so repulsive!! What a closed minded man not wanting the best for his children!!! Diamonds are created under pressure. It’s good to challenge the kids making them also stronger individuals!

    I was overweight as a child too. My family didn't care too much about diet as we would eat about anything. Our diet was high in refined carbs. A wake up call came when my dad passed on from kidney complications following his diabetes type 2 disease and sedentary lifestyle. I now take care of my health seriously as I am living more actively and watching my diet.

    People say this is child abuse.The child abuse is that they’ll be bullied just like I did...and they will develop eating disorders like I did and sure they’ll lose weight but it’ll ruin their lives.PLEASE DONT LET YOUR CHILD BECOME OVERWEIGHT!!!!

    The kid crying for the pizza, I would bet that pizza has MSG in it. Most of us are not super sensitive to MSG. For some humans MSG is like crack cocaine. They are More sensitive to it, it really causes them to want more. That why she was crying. She would not cry for more if the food was normal. Food companies and their greed needs to be taken to task as well, not just "parents."
    The bread is missing the germ of the wheat and all the goodness that was meant for humans to eat unless it made with ancient grains. It probably has lots of sugar. Sugar is incredibly addictive, more addictive than Cocaine.

    I have a normal wieght fit kid so this is not coming from being triggered....... Here goes....
    I totally disagree with this Dr. Saying this epidemic is not about metabolism! There is a factor in this that is hidden, there is something they don't tell the people. There is CLEARLY a percentage of people in our modern world that do not respond well to the modern diet. There is something WAY off other than calories in calories out. That is bullshit science! This lie is only serving to shame people effected by this epidemic! Can we look at rapeseed oil?...very bad for humans, can we look at chemicals, not just in our food but everywhere? Can we look at hormones, inflamitory disease, high fructose corn syrup, stress? These Drs. Profit from towing the party line! Pure evil!

    brother was that on keeping g food separate for many years. also he was a fussy eater. The main rule was we eat at the table together and whatever we put on our plates we had to eat. So we were careful about that. Brother would make these low eating sounds like um. That bothered Dad. Once brother as a teen at a restaurant ordered fish and waitress brought it with the head still on. It was staring at him he said and he was deeply offended and was not going g to eat that fish. Fi ally Dad took the plate and cut the head off the fish and gave the plate back to brother. He just picked at the fish. Fussy fussy.

    When you truly love your child you’ll want the best for them even if it causes them some struggle and discomfort at first. The father who is undermining his wife needs to revaluate if he’s giving his child food to make her happy or is he doing it because it ultimately makes him happy to give her what she wants.

    How outdated is this doctors information? He is really trying to claim 18 and 195 bmi is obese? Straight from the BMI UK gov site, 18.5 to 24.9 - healthy weight , under 18.5% is underweight. That baby at 18% he claims is obese is not and he will give those parents a complex and the children eating disorders. He is wrong and will hurt those children. No wonder Rami didn't believe him.

    That's the key which I never hear any doctor speaking about.
    If you want to lose weight, cut the SUGAR. Forget Calories.
    SUGAR is table sugar, in candies, and in Processed Foods and Starches (rice, noodles, bread...).

    I know from over 20 years with patients, to ignore a child or say no when they re not full or to let Them be on a diet is really NOT the right way.There 'r better,easier and healthier Tricks and technickes for results that stick for ever and At the same time not harm the childs psych. I would love to teach them; ) it hurts to see them suffer here, and Half the stuff is clearly wrong, they will gain more weight later as a result

    Teaching a child what to eat is very simple ... make the plate with the amount and the meal that the child should eat and put it in front of the child ..... of course the child will you make a tantrum .... answer? ' Calmly you say, "Don't you want to eat? OK ... but you're not going to eat anything else and this is the food you're going to eat for the next meal."

    As for being overweight being genetic is true and not a myth at all. But people should not simply use this as an excuse, they should be careful about what they eat and watch over their health ....

    Tegan's mother is deluded and an abuser. The dull, lifeless look in her daughter's eyes, she'd dead behind there. And the Mum thinks what she is doing is fine, that there is in fact something else going on that the Doctor can't diagnose. If GPs could slap people and tell them "YOU ARE KILLING YOUR KIDS" then their jobs would be easier

    This was a wonderful doc with a great message. It's in the parents' power, within their ability, to change & give their children a healthier life. Bravo! I loved watching this, except for Rami. I hope he's gotten the therapy he obviously needs. Sheesh!
