If you are among the normal weight teens and still perceiving yourself uselessly as fat then beware you might be risking yourself to grow up fatty soon.
Yes, above are the findings of a new study ran by Prof Koenraad Cuypers and his colleague researchers recently through which they are claiming that perceiving can along play a big role in triggering body weight.
They emphasized that a strong link exists between perceived weights and actual weights due to several different triggering factors and reasons like psychological stress etc.
"Perceiving themselves as fat even though they are not may actually cause normal weight children to become overweight as adults", Prof Koenraad Cuypers, a researcher at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, said.
The study was conducted by Prof Cuypers and his colleagues at the Department of Public Health and General Practice in Norwegian University of Science and Technology's (NTNU) Faculty of Medicine. In their study, the team of researchers took into account the collected data from the Nord-Trondelag Health Study (HUNT) and thoroughly researched over them to gain evidences over the obesity problem from a new angle.
This is for the first time that a longitudinal study has been run to understand the relation between perceived weights and actual weights of teenagers and young adults.
