Is Dieting Suitable For All Age Groups?

Introduction And Background
There comes a certain time in one’s life that they get pretty conscious about their body. Sometimes it could be acne and sometimes it is obesity that they want to get rid of. However, one should know that dieting is not to bet taken lightly. For instance, if you really need to lose weight because it is affecting your health, you should definitely consider it. But, do not start dieting just for the sake of it. It is not healthy for all age groups. Read on further to find out whether or not dieting is suitable for all age groups and how it affects them.

Younger Children
There is something known as baby fat which we all might have had some time in our life. We grow out of it soon enough as we grow older and gain height. It is terrible to make younger children diet, even if they are overweight, because they are at a growing age. It is dangerous to make a kid diet at his growing age and he can face severe deficiencies, even in growth. Thus, dieting is not at all suitable for younger children, children below fourteen. However, there have been many cases where younger children are abnormally fat. It can be okay to make them diet then but not the strict one and it shouldn’t affect their growth. Otherwise, let them be. When the time will come, their baby fat will automatically grow off and they will be normal weight again. If you force them to diet, it can adversely affect their growth. And no child should have to face that.

Older Children
Dieting is suitable for older children once they are a little above the growing age. For instance, kids who are either seventeen or eighteen are turning into adults, it is fine for them to diet. By this time, if they haven’t lost their baby fat, that means they are turning towards the obese side and that can be pretty bad for their health in the future. Thus, what one must do in circumstances like these is to pick a diet that isn’t a crash diet and ensure that they are getting every single thing in the food pyramid as well, even if in the minutest amounts.

Adults
Of course, adults can diet whenever they want. It is suitable for them and if they are having weight problems, it is best to lose weight rather than bear the health problems that come later on when one gains a lot of weight. Obesity can easily bring about other diseases such as blood pressure problems, cholesterol level problems, diabetes, heart problems to name a few. It is better to try and lose weight rather than let it stay there and then face all the troubles combined later on. Dieting is suitable for adults.

Old People
The doctor should decide whether or not old people should diet. Sometimes they are facing health problems unlike any other and it would be unsuitable for them to try and lose weight. But perhaps at times their health problems are there because of their weight and a doctor can plan a diet which would be effective but not at the cost of their health. Thus, with old people, one has to be a bit careful.

How To Tell Whether You Should Diet Or Not?
You should know whether or not you need to diet or not. A lot of people have the psychological thinking that they are overweight when in fact they are at the ideal weight. It happens a lot of times. People keep telling them that they do not need to diet but they do not listen. It can actually affect their social skills as well as their growth. They need to be helped and explained to that dieting is not the answer. However, at times the opposite happens. A person needs to diet but think that they are alright. Just keep one thing in mind throughout all of this; your growth should not be affected. Do not make a small kid diet when it is his age to eat and play. The baby fat will come off itself with time. But if the kid grows into an adult teen and still hasn’t lost the weight he was supposed to, only then can you think about it.

Conclusion
Dieting is certainly not suitable for all age groups, this article has explained that to you thoroughly. Sometimes you have to see whether or not you need to diet and you can easily ask those around you as well. However, make sure that it does not affect your growth. And as for older people, they should best consult their doctor who can better advise them, after knowing their medical history well.
