Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, April 20 (ANI): A new study has dished light on different methods on how one can tackle obesity after identifying six different models of obesity. The study found out that currently individuals are often treated the same regardless of how healthy they are, where they live or their behavioral characteristics. The research found those who have a BMI of 30 or over actually fit into one of six groups and strategies to successfully tackle weight loss should be tailored according to which group they fall into.The study identified the six groups as i.e. young males who were heavy drinkers, middle aged individuals who were unhappy and anxious, older people who despite living with physical health conditions were happy, younger healthy females, older affluent healthy adults and individuals with very poor health. Researchers suggested messages about alcohol reduction could help tackle obesity in young adults while for middle aged individuals who were unhappy and anxious an intervention involving increasing exercise mixed with psycho-social counseling could be beneficial and young healthy females may not need any intervention.
