Many of us have lost weight to feel better about our bodies before donning a bathing suit for a beach holiday, or getting into that just-too-tight outfit for a special occasion. But old habits die hard, and before we know it we’ve started eating that chocolate cake and stopped going to the gym. Soon after losing the weight, we find ourselves back where we started – or worse.

Last Tuesday, I ate some green beans, a Clif bar, and one homemade sous vide egg bite. That's 2000kj. I swear I don't have an eating disorder -- it's just how you do things on this diet I've been trying. On Wednesday I was back to my regular 8400-ish kj and feeling fine.
When you track calories to try to lose weight, some apps try to be helpful by giving you 'net calories', a number that takes your food and exercise into account. But this can be supremely confusing, and to make it worse, each app calculates it in their own way.
Even if your teen needs to lose weight, talking to them constantly about their weight isn't the best strategy to help them to be healthy, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
