I fear my dd is going to get fat

I do not fear because of looks wise but health wise.

My dd has gained 16lb over two months. 4lbs in the past week. She is a teen. I can't keep her out of the fridge. I walk out of the room and I'll come back and she is in the fridge. She eats breakfast, lunch and dinner. She isn't overweight now but she is heading that way. At this rate she will be overweight by Christmas.

The other day she made herself lunch and she made 3pbj sandwiches and 2 hours later I saw her eating bbq chicken.

This wasn't something she was taught. She is new. Up until this summer she was normal weight actually a little below because she has or did have a high metabolism. And didn't ask for 3 or 4 plates at dinner. Btw, I don't let her have. I usually cut her off at plate 2.

Idk why she is eating like that now.

Talk to her and try to find out why she's eating so much. It could be from anxiety, stress, boredom, or it could be the sign of a serious medical issue.

Then I'd make a doctor appointment for her.

It's never just about food. She may not even understand why she's over eating all of a sudden. My food and body issues started after a trauma in my teens.

Make her start working out as well. Have her start taking karate lessons or something to keep her active.

Is she sexually active?

Maybe just go see a doc to rule out ALL possibilities.
