Macy’s easy 10 pound weight loss takes an army of support.

Macy was looking for a program that would give her that extra push to stay motivated. “Before Kurbo, I was always frustrated with my weight and appearance and felt stuck because nothing ever really worked. I never felt motivated,” Macy says. “She tried to get healthier on her own, but never kept at it for a good amount of time, so I researched and I thought Kurbo might be a good fit,” her mom shares.

Macy and her coach started working on gaining an understanding of nutrition and forming healthy habits. “I loved coach Lauren! She was always so nice and encouraging. Lauren gave me tips that spoke to me and helped me with my personal struggles. It was nice having someone to keep me motivated throughout the journey,” Macy says.

What to do if your child is a picky eater

Childhood is an important period in the development of our food preferences. Though our preferences can change into adulthood, it’s important to expose kids to new foods so that they get comfortable expanding their palates.  Taste buds are always changing so a fun fact to remember is that your child needs to try a new food 8 to 12 times before being able to decide whether they truly dislike the food.  Here are our tips on how to get your picky eaters to explore new foods.


Child Weight Loss Success Story: Lindy realizes that healthier food is tastier food and loses 15 pounds.

With a family history of obesity and diabetes, Lindy’s mom Jennifer wanted a program that would teach her tools for long term health. “We liked that it was specifically designed for kids and I liked that it had games and rewards and it taught her how to read labels. I really wanted it to be something that she could do on her own. Her father and I wanted to stay out of it as much as we could,” Jennifer says.

Lindy wanted to learn healthy habits that she could stick to. I was really excited because I knew that I didn’t want to gain anymore weight and it had been really hard for me to keep track of healthy eating but Kurbo seemed like it would make it easier. I wanted to prove it to myself that I could eat healthy,” Lindy says.
