Quantum – Fat Kids: “So overweight girls can be as active as skinny girls.The reason for this variation, is not yet clear.It may be that for girls, a high fat diet causes weight gain more easily than boys, even before puberty. But this certainly doesn’t mean that exercise is not valuable for young girls.”
Michael Booth is one of the researchers trying to get some facts and information as to why children are overweight and then translate that into advice for parents. We have to get the facts because it is interesting that overweight girls can be just and active as slim ones. It’s not as easy as you think so when people like Michael Booth help to get the picture straight we shall be able to formulate strategies to get our lives and our bodies back in order, and for children, it’s about giving them a positive future.
