Russian dieticians named the main causes of mass obesity of citizens

Rospotrebnadzor conducted statistics on obesity in Russians in 2016 and found the increase in indicators more than doubled. Nutritionists say that over the past 5 years, the number of obese people has increased from 123.65 people per 100,000 residents to 284.8. The indicator grew by 2.3 times.

The main reason is the intake of simple carbohydrates into the body, which quickly turn into fat and do not bring benefits to the body. Complex carbohydrates, protein and vitamins, in contrast, enter the body of Russians with excess weight problems quite a bit. Specialists also note that the poor population is suffering from obesity. Since healthy foods are more expensive than fast food, convenience foods and so on, not all people can afford to eat right. And the rich can consult with dieticians or choose and, most importantly - afford a healthy diet.

Also, with such a disease, stress is taken into account, which affects the appearance of excess weight. People often seize their problems with tasty, but not useful food. It is worth noting that the number of people with obesity can be changed by improving the standard of living in the country.
