In view of the alarming trend of increasing obesity grow scientists look at this problem in a different way. Scientists from the Department of Public Health and General Practice in Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s (NTNU) Faculty of Medicine made an interesting study on the question of whether our perception of our weight corresponds to reality.
Their theory is that many teenagers who think they are fat and not really are in a further stage in life really are overweight or even obese.
One option for this is stress, which leads to accumulation of excess inches around the waist. And this leads to serious risk of heart problems, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Another option allows that adolescents want to lose weight, which causes them to miss important meals like breakfast, and this leads to accumulation of excess weight in adulthood.
Strict diets can also be guilty of actual weight problems, especially when a person is subjected to them without the need for weight reduction.

The study included 1196 participants with normal weight; their weight was traced to the age of 24-30 years. Half of the participants still were not overweight. Those who were already overweight have thought themselves fat when they were teenagers.
