  • Are you sure she isn't pigging out behind your back? Does she eat fruits and veggies? Snacking on chips or anything? I wouldn't just cut carbs unless she is eating way too many..make sure she is getting plenty of exercise..go for a family bike ride or walk after dinner. Have fruit for snacks and make it a family thing. Don't single her out and make her feel like she is on a diet.
