1.    Discuss the possible theories of obesity and provide evidence or examples of each.

Jul 8th, 2015

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! the solution is as such:

one or other of two theories of weight increase, which are the Push or the Pull theories. The Pull Theory suggests that weight is regulated by internal factors which pulls food in – for example, there are lots of hungry fat cells waiting to be filled – or the Push Theory suggests there is something external in the family or the culture which pushes food in.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.awaiting a positive feedback. It was lovely helping you. Please do contact or text me directly for more work assistance. Looking forward to help you again.

Push Factors

There is a lot of evidence for the Push Theory. After all, we live in a culture which celebrates food. Holidays and many other social occasions are centered on eating. If you want to celebrate something you don’t take your family to a salad bar. In our culture there are countless opportunities to eat, together with countless messages telling you that you will be lacking something important – happiness even – if you do not eat. This environment fosters fat.


Genes versus Environment:

Genetic studies have taught us two important things about the effect of environment on obesity. First, most environmental influences on weight gain are unique rather than common environmental influences. Unique means circumstances each individual experiences in his own life. Common refers to factors shared by members of a group – like all living in the same house. Secondly, environmental influences are transient in nature. This means that growing up in a healthy eating home does not guarantee that these eating habits will be maintained as an adult. We now all agree that genes exert a strong effect within environment and this will be more prominent in some people and less so in others.
