Shaping Up: Overweight Students Learn Healthy Habits to Last a Lifetime.
Flax, Ellen
Teacher Magazine, v3 n9 p12 Aug 1992
Describes an elective high school weight-loss course. Students do fat-burning exercises in an atmosphere that does not stigmatize them because they are heavy or unathletic. They study nutrition, proper eating habits, and self-esteem. Most students continue to lose weight or sustain their weight after the course is completed. (SM)
