My teen (17) broke an ankle and is bedridden. They're obese (5'7" @ 250lbs female) and have a difficult time regulating their binges until now. Can't get to the kitchen so built in limiting. My spouse and I are having a conflict when it comes to diet.
I'm seriously concerned about massive weight gain during the recoup period so I'm saying calorie intake should be limited down to about 1500/day. My spouse doesn't seem too worried and keeps feeding our teen closer to 2200-2500/day. Also bad choices, IE a Fast food 3 chicken strip meal with fries instead of a 5 strip meal evidently makes sense to them while I'm saying perhaps roasted chicken with salad would be a better choice.
What I need is a good source for what the dietary needs are and even some sample menus to makes things idiot proof. I've got the knowledge but am not being taken seriously.
Any help would be great. Thanks.
