Hi there! In the recent years, being obese has become a pressing issue because of the health concerns that increase in prevalence along with it - heart diseases, stoke, Diabetes Type 2, and many more...
It is alarming that 3 out of 10 Filipino adults are overweight and obese.
A major factor in the increasing obesity prevalence in the Philippines is the lack of physical activity. FNRI reported that in 2008, about 93% of Filipinos did not engage in leisure-related physical activity and about 75.4% and 76.3% did not engage in non-work and work-related physical activity, respectively
Overweight and obesity can be prevented by achieving an energy balance between calorie intake from food and calorie use. WHO recommends that “people can limit intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from saturated fats to unsaturated fats; increase consumption of vegetables and fruits as well as legumes, whole grains and nuts and limit intake of sugars.”
To increase caloric use, people can increase their levels of physical activity to at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate-intensity activity on most days of the week.
It is high time to take care of our health, first, by improving our daily diet and taking the time to exercise with a minimum of 150 minutes per week. Together, we can do this!
