Pros and Cons

Pro

It appeals to teens since it is written by a popular teenager, plus it encourages them to have a healthy lifestyle and exercise. On top of all that, it is based on the popular and proven Weight Watchers program. It’s easy to follow and has realistic expectations on how to lose weight. It also gives importance to family involvement.

Con

Although this book encourages teens to lead a healthy lifestyle and shares a weight loss program – based on the Weight Watchers plan – that actually worked, it has to be admitted that Frank Gotti Agnello is not a health professional. Plus his record is not all that clean.

Limiting food choices may also increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies in growing boys.
