The Baler University of America claimed in its research said most parents believe that increasing weight can be controlled by exercising children. But new research says, catering for child obesity is most needed. This claim has been made by the Beller University of America in their research.
Research says the biggest cause of obesity is food. Apart from home food, children are unable to burn the calories from the market food. As a result, the weight of the child increases.
Cases of obesity among the children of the country are increasing. Around 1.4 crore children in India are troubled by growing obesity.
The research was done on 77 children
According to Publish Research in the Journal of Nutrition, 43 urban and 34 out-of-town school children were involved in research to understand obesity. What kind of diet are children taking and in which things they are putting their energy into. An attempt was made to understand it.
Urban children are eating more food than rural
Research says, on average, 65 percent more fat was found in children living near the city than in rural children. One-third of such children were declared overweight. They eat more than rural children but the physical activity is the same.
Points on When does obesity increase in children and how to control
1. Two Reasons are Family History, and Catering
Dr. Sanjay Borude, a bariatric surgeon in Mumbai, says obesity in children increases for two reasons. The first is genetic obesity from family history. Second, obesity due to external causes. For example, eat more food which is fried or high calorie. Such as fast and junk food. The absence of calories is the reason for obesity in those sitting jobs. Due to sitting all day, he is unable to use the energy he gets from what he eats, due to which the fat increases.
2. How much is obesity, identify in three ways
Obesity means excess body weight. It is not tested by looking at the texture of the body. How much obesity is tested in three ways. In the first method, the body fat, muscles, bone, and the weight of water present in the body are tested. The second is the body mass index. The ratio of hip and waist is seen in the third examination. These investigations show whether you are really fat or not.
3. What to do to control it?
Diet is the most important, because of how many calories you consume and how much you burn it with exercise. It is important to understand this. Just like eating a burger gives 450-500 calories while an hour workout burns 50 calories, so understand how much food should be taken and how much exercise should be done.
