Dr Krishna Sannigrahi

Abstract :

 Nutrition Transition is the shift in dietary consumption and energy expenditure that coincides with the economic, demographic and epidemiological changes. Transition of traditional diets high in cereal and fiber to more processed diets high in sugars, fat and animal source food. This shift from traditional diets to Westernstyle diets has been a key contributor to the obesity epidemic in low– and middle–income countries. International food trade, investment, commercialization and marketing are drastically impacting the availability of and access to energy– dense but nutrient deficient foods causing the aforementioned shift from traditional diet. The forces of globalization are also strongly influencing many lifestyle changes in developing countries. Major changes in economic structures from agrarian economies to industrialized economies are reducing physical activity levels in occupations around the world. The ongoing trend of eating in a more Western fashion has caused increased rates of adverse health and childhood obesity. In order to reduce obesity and its subsequent health and economic consequences, policy will need to be targeted at both the individual and the environment.
