Liam was a happy 7th grader. He even made it to the soccer team, and he couldn’t be happier. But things suddenly turned sour. First, he gave back his iPhone. Then he stopped hanging out with his friends. Then his parents noticed he’s no longer eating his meal regularly. He started eating only one meal daily which made him lose so much weight.
