    I feel for you on this one. My son has weight issues. His issues are that what he eats are high calorie... Carbs and meat, no veggies or fruit and his activity of choice is no activity. When he goes off to school all the walking brings his weight down.

    We instituted a no more than once a week treat rule (till Dudla came home&#128530. I offer the veggies that he will eat at every meal I make for him (basically salad and broccoli). I get the best versions of the things he does eat (smallest buns for the burgers I could find, lowest carb nuggets, etc). We don't snack in our house, just meals, so there is no snacks type food here. Once I find something that is even remotely healthy I make sure to serve it regularly. But I do all of this as subtly as I possibly can. I do not want him to think I am putting him on a diet.

    In summer he does best when he is busy, even if it isn't necessarily "movement" because at home he just lays around even at work in front of a computer it is more movement than that.

    Good luck, my heart is with you on this one.

    Our adult son was diagnosed with Aspergers when he was about 5. He is 23 now. He was also a very picky eater, since going primal he has changed enormously. He eats a wide variety of food, any many many of his asperger traits are gone... completely. He makes statements now like what was I thinking back then? He can still be a little awkward and stuff that others learnt early on in their childhood is being learnt now but I am forever grateful he found this way of eating.

    He chose to eat primal himself as an adult and embraced the lifestyle. Your boy may not choose to do this ever but thought it would be helpful to know of the possibilities. As a parent I was always concerned about what his life would be like now I am much less fearful.

    P - that's a hard one. I have 2 that actually need the calories, so I'm feeling them foods I otherwise wouldn't (like making shakes with heavy whipping cream just to get enough calories in them). Seems like whatever you try, your husband will have to be 100% on board. If I think of anything, I'll be sure to let you know. Wish I had some sage advice

    How does he feel about smoothies? I believe that a decent protein shake can be a reasonable meal substitute for certain people. My mom made shakes for my bro for years just to make sure he was getting all his nutrients covered. A bit of all natural PB, chocolate flavored whey protein, and maybe a banana, plus some healthy fats?

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement.
    NW, that is a great idea.

    Today we are off on a day trip to New Haven, CT. When my husband and I started dating 24 years ago, he lived in there. We hung out at Yale and the surrounding area. We plan to see the art museum, tour the school and hit some of our favorite eateries.

    I am sure the Wii Fit thing will be a great activity for the two of you to do together, as well Hulky is hoping to get my brother out on his bike while Hulky rollerblades. My brother loves riding his bike, so I don't think it'll be too difficult. Worse for Hulky, since my parents live on the hilly side of town!

    Have fun in New Haven! I have only been down there for concert (Toad's Place), but the area is a lot of fun.

    Atticus books and coffee shop for breakfast...4 hours in Yale Art Museum (overwhelming, stunning)...lunch at Pepe's pizza...maybe another used bookstore on the way home (a factory full of treasures).
    So many memories for me and Bill

    Two days until the Variety Show goes up. Dress rehearsal on Monday was great. Feeling ready.

    Wish I weighed less...story of my life. I need to remember that 20 lbs makes no difference to my talent.
