On November 26, major healthcare groups and leading media organisations, particularly in India and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, will commemorate Anti-Obesity Day (AOD) with activities highlighting how obesity is a public health threat. Mrs. Vandana Luthra’s Indian Wellness brand VLCC took the first move in raising awareness about obesity and its consequences by launching an anti-obesity effort in 2001. Anti-Obesity day celebrate to create awareness in people who is having more fat in their body and want to start a healthy lifestyle.
Obesity in children can result in high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. There could be no symptoms other than an extremely high weight. One of the most effective approaches to establish a healthy weight in a child is to improve the entire family’s nutrition and activity habits. Understanding how the weight is increasing in children is the major responsibility of parents, if the parents can’t control their eating habits then it reflects on their children health. If the parents have discipline regards to their food habits then it simultaneously comes to the child.
Obesity is mostly seen in children, IT workers, pregnant women and mostly chair persons. Obesity in pregnant women leads to the following conditions as Gestational Diabetes, Preeclampsia, gestational hypertension and obstructive sleep apnea. Obesity in a pregnant woman can affect babies in several manners. Babies can have some birth defects such as heart disease and neural tube defects. Obesity can also make it difficult from checking the fetus anatomy on an ultrasound exam.
Premature birth– Problems linked to a woman’s obesity, such as preeclampsia, can result in a medically necessary preterm birth. This indicates that the baby is delivered prematurely due to a medical condition. Premature newborns do not have the same level of development as babies born after 39 weeks of pregnancy. As a result, premature babies are at a higher risk of both short- and long-term health issues.
Try to breastfeed infants whenever possible and feed growing children an appropriate meal and do not exceed the limit. Changes in family dining patterns can teach children about good eating habits. This will make it easier for children to maintain good eating habits as they grow into adults. You risk overeating if you eat when you’re not hungry. This additional energy is eventually stored as fat in the body, which can lead to obesity. Encourage your youngster to eat just when he or she is hungry and to chew more slowly to aid digestion. Your youngster may be more prone to eat unhealthy foods if you bring them into the house. Allow less-healthy snacks as a rare “reward” instead of stocking the fridge and cupboard with nutritious foods. More time spent in front of a computer implies less time for physical activity and adequate sleep. Because exercise and sleep are vital for maintaining a healthy weight, it’s important to prioritise them above computer or TV time. Those who do not get adequate sleep may gain weight. A sleep regimen, a nighttime ritual, and a comfy pillow and mattress are all recommended by the National Sleep Foundation as good sleep practices.
Healthy dietary lipids, such as polyunsaturated fats, can help lower cholesterol and lower the risk of obesity. Adults are advised to consume five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Adding veggies and fruit to your plate can help you stick to your calorie budget and prevent overeating. More emphasis should be placed on eating low-glycemic foods. The glycemic index (GI) is a scale that determines how rapidly food raises blood sugar levels. Focusing on low-GI foods can assist to stabilise blood sugar levels. Maintaining a constant blood glucose level can aid in weight loss.
Genetic testing comprises examining your DNA, which is a molecular database containing instructions for how your body operates. Genetic testing can detect changes (mutations) in your DNA that could result in illness or disease. Genetic testing has limitations, but it can provide useful information for diagnosing, treating, and preventing illness. If you’re well, a positive genetic test result doesn’t mean you’ll get sick. However, in rare cases, a negative test does not mean that you will not develop a condition.
At Qua Nutrition we do genetic testing of clients which is not mandatory for everyone but it will give us a better understanding of how your genes are built up and which genes are causing the condition. With the help of this result, we ensure your nutrition plan is made.
