Description

"Grade 5-9-This upbeat book offers girls going through puberty advice on nutrition, fitness, self-image, and appearance. The authors claim that following their Cactus Plan, which is largely based on the food pyramid model, will increase energy and concentration, improve sports ability, reduce stress, and improve one's looks. Readers are encouraged to take charge of their choices, and to recognize marketing gimmicks. The plan offers a balanced diet along with guidelines for physical activity, hydration, and rest. Most adolescents will need a support network of family and friends to make these ideas a reality, but the book offers the inspiration to get started and sufficient information for reference along the way..." --Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
