Along with the change of work and place of living, overweight and obesity remain a huge problem of the modern generation. According to the latest WHO estimates, approximately 1.5 billion adults suffer from overweight, and another 350 million are prone to obesity. Approximately 20 million children under the age of 8 have problems with excess weight. According to statistics, women are more prone to obesity than men, doctors attribute this to the characteristics of the female body.
Having analyzed all the reasons for such a situation, it remains obvious that we eat too much and move too little. And the problem is not just a lack of sports, but often an irregular, stressful work schedule, which abruptly changes plans and causes irregular eating and overeating. In addition, healthy foods are often expensive and inconvenient to cook, when there are many affordable and quick snack options. However, they are often harmful, with a high content of sugar and fat.
So it’s no surprise that more and more highly-specialized (formerly) sports nutrition products are finding their way onto supermarket shelves and into our shopping bags. After all, it is a quick and healthy snack. And although sports nutrition is aimed at the needs of active people and athletes, it has a negative effect on people with low physical activity. It is worth remembering that their daily caloric intake is lower, and additional consumption of such products may exceed it. Supplements to the diet also can’t replace food, of course, if it is not a sweet food.
