Summary
Tiger Greene was big, and he kept getting bigger. By age twelve, he was 250 pounds--and miserable. His joints hurt, he was at risk of grown-up medical conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, and he was teased by other kids. One day, he decided to make a change. Within months of making simple but important swaps in his diet and working out twice a day, Tiger lost 60 pounds, cut his percentage of body fat in half, and got off all his medications. He went from not being able to run a lap to running 5K and 10K races. Then, to help other kids, he formed Team Tiger, a nonprofit organization, and partnered with NFL great Marcus Stroud to create Sacking Obesity camps for children and families. Tiger has spread the message that kids really can change their lives--and their futures. Now, this book gives young people--and some grown-ups, too--his simple game plan for better living.
