As obesity is a lifestyle disease, thus it is largely preventable. There are a number of things that an individual and society can do to get rid of condition.
On individual level, people should:
- Reduce their energy intake from fats and sugars
- Eat more fruits and vegetables, legumes, as well as whole grains and nuts
- Participate in a regular physical activity
However, individual responsibility can only be impacted properly if all people have a proper access to a healthy lifestyle. Hence, it is very important for society to support individuals in fulfilling their recommendations. However, it can only be done through constant functioning of evidence based and population based schemes that lead to easy availability of regular physical activities and healthier dietary options, reasonable and easily accessible to everyone, especially to the poor people. A perfect example of such type of a policy can be imposing a tax on sugar sweetened beverages.
Apart from an individual and society, the food industry can also play a key role in this context. Food industry can promote healthy diets by:
- Reducing the sugar, fat and salt content of processed foods
- Easy availability and affordability of healthy and nutritious choices for all consumers
- Restricting promotion of foods items that are high in salt, sugar and fat content, particularly for children and teenagers.
- Supporting the use of healthy food options and regular physical activities in the workplace.
