We hope that children and parents learn about the dangers associated with obesity and how to stop it by hearing Larvie’s story.

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

Larvie is a young, lovable caterpillar who likes to eat junk food and watch TV. Life is good until it’s time for Larvie to spin a cocoon. Because of his bad habits, Larvie is not strong enough to take the first step towards butterfly transformation. He’s stuck.

“We wrote this book because we see firsthand the devastating effects of obesity,” co-author Dr. Mickey Seger said. “Through talking with our patients, we’ve learned that unhealthy eating habits and sedentary lifestyles began at a young age and continued into adulthood. It is very important that we take a proactive stance on obesity from the get-go.”

Slowly but surely, Larvie achieves his goal with the support of his family, friends, and doctor. He conquers the caterpillar-equivalent of high blood pressure, “pillar pressure,” and loses weight by eating well-balanced, healthy meals and regular exercise.

“Like Larvie, our patients can’t do the things they want to do because of their weight. We hope that children and parents learn about the dangers associated with obesity and how to stop it by hearing Larvie’s story.”

Larvie Learns a Lesson was written by Dr. Mickey Seger, Dr. Terive Duperier and Melinda Gonzalez and is published by AuthorHouse Press. It is available on Amazon.
