Overweight or obese children and teens more than tripled between 1980 and 2004. While obesity is not limited by gender, nationality or socio-economic status, there is a slightly increased risk for those who are poorer families. Girls are more likely to be overweight than boys, and Spanish and African American teens are less likely to be overweight than other races.
Younger people, especially obese teens, face more serious problems. First, they face the same health problems as overweight adults, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension and cancer. Secondly, because of their weight and health they face developmental disabilities, especially if they are not able to attend school regularly. Finally, they face social development problems while struggling to develop their personality while facing each other against the average children.
Children and teenagers become obese for several reasons: they tend to eat a slightly balanced diet full of fast foods and very limited fruits and vegetables. A study showed that 10-15 year-old girls and boys admitted that fried potatoes are the only vegetables they consume regularly. Another study has shown that girls consume other vegetables, but only when they have a cheese sauce.
In addition to the bad food selection, people are usually very seated, most of them in front of the television or on the computer screen, or talking through text messages and mobile phones. Finally, the children in the study, who were the most overweight, were overweight parents and not only expressed their genetic relationship but also their explanation of atmospheric conditions. After all, children of smokers are usually smokers themselves, so it would be the reason that obese parents usually produce obese children.
Weight and young teens, especially girls, have the problem of slimming and weight loss programs that tend to fall back. In a three-year study of boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14, diets finally got more weight than those who did not eat at all. You need to use another approach when you are treating obese children and teenagers. First, the family must fully understand that there is a problem. In recent years, several school districts fired when home letters were sent to the child's weight and health risks. Parents were unaware that their child could develop "adult" health problems such as the II. Type of diabetes or heart disease, or it was not accepted that the child was only "squat" or "husky". Instead of facing the legal consequences, school districts did not inform the parents in the hope that the child's physician would rather use the battle.
It is normal for a girl to grow her body fat during puberty; it is simply the way the female body works. From then on, it is common for girls to pay more attention to their physical appearance, many of whom develop developmental abnormalities because they are not satisfied with what they see. We should also note that these girls are more likely to develop depression, which also increases their chances of getting even more weight.
Boys are getting more and more muscular and heightening, which makes them more satisfied with their bodies, while young girls are increasingly overturned in the mirror they see. At age 15, more than half of the girls are spending 16 countries. The United States is the country with the most heavily dressed girls, 47% of girls are 11 years old and 62% are 15 years old. Ethnicity plays a role in girls' feelings on their bodies, and African-American girls are more satisfied with physical education than the same age Caucasian girls.
While most people assume that the effect of men on each other affects teens' dissatisfaction, a study has shown that this is not necessarily the case. It is a fact that the pressure of their peers is ranked third in the list of factors behind media films and parental attitudes. It is important to understand that young girls, such as magazines, television and movies, who are overly affected by the media images presented in the media are more likely to develop depression and eating disorders, including anorexia and bulimia. Ironically, this group of girls also goes the opposite way and intentionally increases because they say they will never look like the women they look every day.
Not as simple as a diet
Obviously, this is not as simple as suggesting that these children are a diet. This problem is about changing the attitude of the whole family about weight, nutrition and body image, as well as physical activity. You can not believe that a 15-year-old girl or boy will be happy with fresh fruits and vegetables while mother and father, as well as siblings, eat burgers and potatoes. Nor can they believe that these teenagers are reluctant to get up from the sofa, away from video games, their movies, or other electronics to practice when no one else is. Everyone needs to change food and weight-sensing emotions so that the child does not feel "sick" or "other".
Behavior and attitude management needs to be solved, or the weight does not change at least in a non-positive way.
Renee and the Family: A Positive Case Study
Renee mocked the classroom again when she suddenly collapsed on the floor of the gym. Panicked, the school sent her to the emergency room and called her mother. The doctor, a rude and clear-minded person, explained to Renee's mother that her daughter was over 55 pounds and if something does not change immediately she will die with a middle-aged woman's body. Renee's episode had a reaction in her body that she did not get enough oxygen in the classroom and it would deteriorate if she did not change it. Renee and her parents met in two days.
Renee's mother, Emily and her father, Doug met with a doctor and a nutritionist who agreed that the family needed everyone. Doug, he was never convinced that he was too overweight, he decided to leave the room. But Emily was cautiously listening to how to change it, one at a time, so that the family would not feel overwhelmed. Renee and went to the store where they tasted new fruits and vegetables and recipes for turkey and chicken foods that were better than the red meat they had eaten so much. They learn how to use non-fatty yogurt instead of mayo and how to add more vegetables to foods without anyone seeing them.
Renee and Emily both agreed to join the women's gymnasium, too psychologically difficult for them. Another change they've made is eating mini-food, spreading all day long so they do not feel too hungry at all. Between breakfast and lunch, and again after the evening meal, both Renee and her mother use protein supplements. This gives them high quality protein and protects them from being hungry in the absence of high calorie intake of other protein supplements
