Why?

  • Obesity is mainly caused from more energy going into the body, than what is going out. Consuming amounts of energy and then releasing the same amount of energy by exercising, will leave you as the same weight you were when you first consumed the energy.

  • There are lots of ways you can become obese but the amount of time children spend at school can have an impact on their weight and their health. Because parents want positive academic results the children’s recess and lunch is either reduced or entirely cut off. Because of people eat lunch at different times some of the children will have to wait for a long time to get something to eat but the children who do after-school activities might not get to eat so when they get home they offend attend to over eat unhealthy food.
