A survey recently conducted by a collaboration of the NSW Food Authority and the health department of the state has revealed that this winter may call for a majority of Aussies to put on weight.
Michelle Bridges, Television's Biggest Loser trainer, says that it is not strange as people often tend to adopt bad habits because of their laziness during cold weather.
A study focusing on seasonal eating habits was conducted by the team, which has found that most people are likely become obese and feel ill during winters. Out of a total of 1250 participants, one in every four people was at risks of growing overweight in winters.
And the same was astonishingly despite the fact that more than half of all people knew what caused them to become obese.
Michelle added that it is evident since people do not prefer going out of home during cold. Also, a majority likes to consume snack food and fast food only as well as exercise is done less.
Doctors and nutritionists concern the upcoming scenario and thus have been suggesting all Australians to follow a healthier meal choice. Dr. Kerry Chant, NSW Health chief officer, affirmed, "This message is particularly important for younger people so they can develop healthier eating habits before they become overweight or obese".
