Rare food intakes promote the disruption of lipid metabolism and can cause hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia. Therefore, obese children are advised to eat 5-6 times a day. Frequent food intakes do not only prevent hyperlipidemia, but also effectively satisfy hunger.
Particular attention should be paid to the fact that the process of fat splitting in the child’s body occurs more intense in the first half of the day. Therefore, in the first half of the day, caloric intake should be higher than in the second. In order to limit the consumption of high-calorie food in the afternoon, the child should not eat meat and fatty dishes for dinner.
The energy value of the diet should not exceed the actual energy consumption of the child. Because of the long period of improper food and hypodynamia, the daily rate of energy expenditure decreases in the majority of obese children. Therefore, in the calculation of daily energy intake, it is necessary to focus on the level of the child’s physical activity.
If your child is not able independently to adhere to a hypocaloric diet, the pediatrician may prescribe him an appetite suppressant. For over 50 years, the most prescribed appetite suppressant all over the world is Phentermine.

Ionamin, Adipex and Duromine diet pills are sold by prescription only. To get a prescription for Phentermine-containing pills, a child should undergo a medical examination. Only when the pediatrician makes sure that benefits of Phentermine exceed potential risks to the child’s health, he will be able to write out the prescription for this anorexigenic drug.
It should be noted that Phentermine (Adipex, Ionamin, Duromine) for a child could be prescribed only by a doctor who has experience in the treatment of obese children and adolescents.
