The great national pastime – Picking on the fat kid
It’s known that exercise is a key factor leading to sustained weight loss. But, a new study says otherwise — physical activity has no impact on obese children and instead they should be encouraged to eat healthier.
Researchers studied 300 children over five years and found that obese kids are inactive because of their weight and not fat because they are inactive. Parents should focus on healthy eating and cutting calorie consumption rather than getting their children engage in sports, according to them.
