Some other lifestyle diseases that are caused by childhood obesity are type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, hypertension and sleep apnea.
Lack of physical activity is one of the major risk factors associated with Obesity. This may be because of a part-time job or using cars instead of walking or riding a bike to school.
In todays world, people prefer to watch TV, play video games, etc. instead of having a regular exercise routine. If someone isn't active, the extra energy used when exercising is stored as fat in the body.
Bad diet is another major risk factor for Obesity. Unhealthy eating tends to run in family which makes it harder to stop the habits. Sugar and saturated fats have impacts on diet and Obesity.
A poor diet, leading to Obesity, consists of eating very large portions, too much processed and fast foods, comfort eating and drinking highly sugary drinks regularly.
Some protective factors that can be used for teenagers are encouraging and feeling motivated to participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day , and reducing the amount of 'screen' time in a day for physical activities.
Others are making sure that the daily requirements of fruits/vegetables are met, gradually changing the eating habits, slowing the effects of Obesity, drinking water instead of soft drinks and eating only when hungry and in reasonable portions, eating the food slowly.
And thats the end of the presentation, thankyou for listening and I hope that you have learned about Obesity.
