A recent study has found that a person's perspective about his or her physic plays vital role in making one obese. According to the study, a teenager who believes that he is fat tends to gain weight.
The study was conducted by the researchers of Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The researchers based their findings saying that the psychology of a person does play a significant role in shaping one's personality. Thus, a person thinking of him being obese is more likely to gain further weight.
Koenraad Cuypers from the researchers' team said, "Another explanation may be that young people who see themselves as fat often change their eating habits by skipping meals, for example". Difficult diet plans like skipping breakfast and dinner can make them eat more and thus they can gain weight, significantly.
Unhappiness with one's physic is mostly seen among the growing teenagers. The parents of teenagers are advised to complement their children about their health rather than making them to feel guilty of being obese. They certainly can reduce weight while being happy instead under stress. It is hoped that the findings of the study would help in curbing the growing problem of obesity.
