Being overweight or obese is one thing, but childhood obesity is another thing altogether. Everything around you are different, even yourself. The entire picture becomes clearer when you have your own experience—when you yourself have been an obese child. Memories come and seem that you are looking at yourself in a film. A long movie playing your past, all for you. As per the ancient Balkan mentality, overweight/obesity is a sign of wellness and wealth, and this is true in some families. The way that they eat, love, drink, and celebrate is sometimes connected with being prosperous and being “healthy.” Some centuries ago, a woman had to be overweight/obese to be considered beautiful. In “The Epic of the Kreshniks,” (Albanian mythology) being beautiful, especially for women, means being big and fat. The mythical hero Muji needed to marry the biggest and the fattest woman in the district (Epic of Kreshniks” is a kind of Albanian mythology, for heroes for big sizes, where hyperbolic and metaphor are very common. In the meantime, has served as a subtracts of our creation of Albanian nation).
Now, however, the mentality has changed and being healthy and not obese is the goal. But obesity and eating behavior are vital topics and dealing with them is not easy (Form the past till now the mentality to be big and fat has changed. Now the strategy against overweight and obesity is in children’s adults and ages). Genes do not define one’s destiny. Genes are not the destination (the study shows that we can change our way of life depending also on other factors as nutrition healthy lifestyle and social health care standards. Obese parents not necessarily give birth to obese children…. heredity goes until 40 % so the case is open to improve the healthy way of our life)
