Teens feeling pressured to lose weight before prom

(WFLX) - It's prom season, and there's a lot of pressure on young girls right now.

For many teens, all the fun associated with prom is overshadowed by a desire to look good for the big night.

Doctors say prom can serve as an opportunity to teach girls about healthy habits.

If your teen is trying to drop a few pounds, doctors say, something easy they can do to healthfully lose weight is cut all sodas and sugar-sweetened drinks out of their diet.
