I work with parents of teens, and we are very concerned about the messages this new diet book is giving young people. As adults we can laugh off the stupidity of the ‘tips’, but as parents of teens (particularly parents of teenage girls) this is no laughing matter. Our daughters are already insecure about their bodies, some suffering eating disorders. This book has gained popularity because it speaks to insecure teenagers. I feel so sorry for our children that they live in an age where media and society places so much importance on what you look like, with little or no regard for good health and balanced living.
