Data leads Galicia in Spain in the proportion of obese children, almost 30% – and is the third community in adults suffering from the same disease -23% compared with 14.5 of Spain, according to surveys by the explained to Efe managers of the Galician Association of Dieticians and Nutritionists (AGDN).
The president of the association, formed in November 2008, Maria Gonzalez, told Efe that the Galician reality about obesity has the same explanation as in other places, ie in children given an increasingly sedentary leisure fast food, poorly prepared or purchased.
The lack of adequate information, he said, makes the citizens believe that the bread and potatoes are fattening, “and that is not true, because like any other food, fattening if eaten in excess,” and in that sense advocated encourage children “more snacks and fewer give a dollar to buy themselves some sweet pastries.”
Gonzalez, 26, and Vice President AGDN Jose Antonio Lopez, 28, working respectively in the Public Health and in private, but said that among the challenges of the Association is claiming the role for graduates in Dietetics and Nutrition, like them, both in the public health as government programs like “concello healthy.”
Both formed outside Galicia and here the only dietary health degree is the Training module which trains technicians in Dietetics, “who are crowding out some jobs whose skills are, in fact, college graduates, as are developing and evaluating diets, “he said.
The newly formed association has 40 members, is part of the Spanish Association of Dietetics and Nutrition and its objectives, immediate, is promoting the roles of nutritionists, “that are clear to all of society and the administration,” he said, create, as soon as the College of Dietitians and Nutritionists, existing in other 5 regions.
In this sense, Galicia has more than 10 years behind in Catalonia and Navarre “and obesity data sample of Galicia are some areas where we are needed, and disseminate good eating habits, increase physical activity and provide information truthful, and judiciously, “said Lopez.
Meanwhile the president, although it works natural Ourense Hospital Clínico de Santiago de Compostela, said it was “worrying” that the data of childhood obesity in Galicia are only surpassed by the U.S. and UK, the rest of world.
He explained that in Spain begin to organize interventions to alleviate this problem, such as summer camps for obese children “idea imported from the USA and China, similar to the camps for diabetics and other patients.”
According to Gonzalez, one of the keys to act against obesity is that mentalizing is a disease that increases the risk of others, all serious.
The partners and managers AGDN devoted in the coming days, several hours to give lectures all over Galicia, to remember to eat five meals a day, of which 3 must be major and three type “snack” that there that reducing the intake of fried and fat, and you have to eat everything, but in fewer than usual.
The Atlantic diet, like the Mediterranean, according to Lopez, are healthy and balanced, but the first is spoiled by the large amount of food that is linked to the gastronomic traditions of Galicia, and the second is impaired because the Mediterranean coastal settlements incorporate foreign dishes to accommodate foreign tourists.
They also considered a problem “that borders on fraud” that people seeking help to balance your intake “have to be put in the hands of biologists, veterinary colleges and even when such jurisdiction is exclusive of the doctors of Endocrinology and Nutrition and graduates in Dietetics and Nutrition. ”
