Starved for attention and Obesity Day: life injustices

Stories and News No. 242

Today I read two news that I have to put together.
The first concerns the research of the Italian Association of Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition (ADI).
They announced that actually in Italy there are 4 million and 700,000 obese people, a significant increasing number, particularly among men and especially children.
To further sensitize the public, the association has organized a national event on Oct. 10 and 11 with an unmistakable name: Obesity Day 2010.
At the same time, I learn from various newspapers that, in view of the World Food Day on October 16 (United Against Hunger), Medecins sans frontieres (Doctors without borders) are launching a campaign entitled: Food is not enough.
The famous humanitarian organization presents a very touching work in support of it: Starved for attention.
Now, without considering the merits of the obesity problem, its causes and origins, aware that being overweight is also due to some disease, it is inevitable to me to see these two news as closely related…

The Story:

From the Decalogue by ADI:

1. First rule: do movements…


2. Beware of condiments…


3. How is it distributed the food I eat during the day?


4. Chew slowly and put in the mouth small pieces of food…


5. Do not eliminate the traditionally considered "fattening" foods…


6. Eat a lot of vegetables but be careful with fruits…


7. Alcohol reduces the removal of fat that our body puts in reserve…


8. Eat sea fish at least once or twice a week, learning simple and pleasing recipes…


9. Choose achievable goals…


10. Keep the slimming…
