According to a latest study those who eat often at buffets and cafeteria are more prone to obese. As they find their community unpleasing for physical activity. It is believed that people want to do physical activity and eat healthy food but in cities there is a lack of access to fresh fruits and vegetables. This is causing people to ignore healthy life, fresh fruit, physical activities etc. thus getting obese.
In the study conducted over 258 randomly selected adults in 12 rural communities in Missouri and Tennessee showed that lack of sidewalks for walking or biking or just few places available to be active has made people perceive their community unpleasant for physical activity. It’s not that people don’t want to get physical activity or eat healthy food , but we have made it difficult in many communities. People in small town spend a great deal of time in cars, and they also may not have easy access to fresh fruits and vegetables in market.
During the study, the researcher asked the participants about access to produce and low-fat foods, frequency and location of food shopping and frequency and location of restaurant dinning. they also were asked how they perceived their community for physical activity. The findings revealed that respondents who ate tho ate out often, especially at buffets, cafeteria and fast food restaurants, were more likely to be obese. Rural adults have higher level of obesity and are less active in their leisure time than urban and suburban adults. Those with high school education or less reported limited access to fruits and vegetables and were more likely to shop at convenience stores. Although obesity rates are higher in rural areas, this is one of the first studies to look at food choices and exercise i this population says Alicia Casey Determining how much these factors increase the risk of obesity in rural areas can help us determine methods to help this group, he added.
