The first step in any healthy transformation is a change in thinking.
Eating to nourish and power your body is simple when you know how.
Movement and nutrition are both the results of habit and habits can be formed.
Being healthy isn't a goal; it's a way of living.
Downsize For Life is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that exists to support young people ages 13-18 that are currently at an unhealthy weight in transforming their lives through mental focus, fitness and nutrition in a body positive and empowering environment.
Downsize For Life is here to challenge the shame-induced silence surrounding obesity and youth. We exist to empower young people to take ownership over their health and begin their health journey toward transformation.
There is a significant correlation between youth obesity and depression, bullying, suicide, eating disorders and violence. While there are a multitude of programs that are working toward childhood obesity prevention there are few resources for our teen population who are already at an unhealthy weight. Downsize For Life was created to address this critical need.
