I was a fat teenager. 300 lbs at age 14. I had plenty of mom's healthy cooking and we never had junk food, processed food, sugary drinks, etc. I just ate too much of what we did have. I was dragged from doctor to doctor, nutritionist to nutritionist from the age of 10 or so. It never helped any unfortunately. I was also very active, participated in a track club (don't ask how, I don't know), did cheerleading workouts, did ballet and tap, rode my bike, walked every where, swam every day during summer, etc. I even started doing weights in my mid teens and joined a gym.
It did suck to be a morbidly obese teenager.
You can't out-exercise poor eating habits.
