BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Obesity, a problem in the UK?

We have recently heard about this health problem in the United Kingdom and the paradox we find with brands such as McDonald ( a fast-food restaurant) or Coca-Cola that sponsor the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Read these two articles and write a comment about what we could do.

  1. I think that is very important to eat foods low in fast. Normally, when we go traveling, our diet is so different; We eat more, the times that we eat are different etc..
    On one trip, the cheapest way to eat is going to McDonald, once a year is not bad, but this should not be an habit.
    There are many people around the world every day drink Cola and eat burgers and high fat meat.
    I think people do not know that this is very bad for your health.

  3. It is true that today there are many people who have problems with obesity, so everyone must have a healthy diet and go to McDonald and drink Coca-Cola only once a week. This is important because obesity leads to even more diseases than alcohol (diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, arthritis, indigestion, gallstones, some cancers, etc).
    In addition 30,000 people die prematurely each year due to obesity.
    I agree that McDonald and Coca-Cola sponsor the Olympic Games, it is good that these big companies which have much money, do campaigns for weight loss, for example McDonalds give gifts to children for to help children to lose weight.
    I think that the government should give more money and promote physical exercise and healthy diet.
    I recommend everyone to eat healthy, to do exercise and to live well.

  4. On one hand, I think that the number of people who have got problems with obesity in the UK is really high (60 %). And of course, the principal consecuence of this problem is the premature death that takes 30000 person each year.This number is really really big, I can't believe it!

    Obesity takes with her other problems like diabetis, heart disease, gallstones, etc. And it's just for eating too much! I think people should be educated and conscious about how to have a good diet and be promoted to do more sport.

    On the other hand, I think that it's really paradoxical that McDonalds participates on the Olympic plan to make children healthier. McDonal isn't health at all! They are lying people! I don't agree at all with this McDonals' plan...

  5. think that Obesity is the principal medical problem which is present in many countries like EEUU, England or Spain.

    It is a big problem because obesity causes a lot of health problems (I read this in one of the articles) like Diabetes, Heart disease and Arthritis. Hearth disease is the most important health problem for me. If you have obesity, you'd suffer a coronary thrombosis.

    There are a lot of thing that you can do to not be an obese like aet fruit and vegetables regulary and do sport twice a week.

  6. I think the UK is behind the times in thinking about "rubbish food", rubbish food being food high in protein and fat. Like burgers. I don't think eating vegetables are the solution to obesity. For one thing, what do you usually eat vegetables with? Lots of oil or salad dressing. The only solution is that people of all ages, they not eat junk food although they love it because all of us need a balanced diet and we know what types of ingredients we need to introduce in our diet. Maybe someone don't know it but if you go to ask your doctor, he will tell you all that you need and then you won't have this problem so I don't understand how a lot of people have obesity in rich countries if they could ask their doctors to make a good diet to them.

  7. Hi everybody! (I'm tired of start with "I think, I think...")

    The problem with the obesity it's harder than we think. Constantly, we are submitted to announcements of "Burger King", "McDonalds", and others.. and they know how to convince to buy their "fast -disgusting- food". And It's obvious that It's a seriously problem. In the UK an estimated 60.8 per cent of adults have obesity! 2 of every 4.

    I think the solve it's simple. Illegalization of all announcements destinated to the unhealthy things. If you wouldn't like be the american stereotype, you must have healthy life, do sport, don't eat fast food and have a healthy mind.

    Also, you should see for your body!

  8. I think that in UK there is a important problem of obesity because people in those countries eat much junk food and this people don´t practise anything sport. In spain there are lately more and more Mcdonalds, burgure kind ... but I think that in Spain there isn´t much obesity because the people practise more sport and respect more his body.
    the truth is that I haven´t traveled to UK but from what I have watched in UK movies and programs many people are very fat. In MTV, a TV channel, there is a program where teenagers lose much wight with a personal trainer.

  9. I think that obesity is a very serious problem because the people who have got it can have got other health problems as:diabetes,indigestion,heart disease,...In United Kingdom and in the USA people eat a lot of hamburgers,kebab,chips,... because in these countries there are a lot of fast food restaurants, so the people who live here don't usually eat healthy food.
    Nowadays this problem is getting worse because more and more people have got obesity problems, especially children.Eating vegetables for me isn´t the solution because I think that sport is very important too, and the most important thing is not to eat fast food, because this is the main problem.
    I think that it is a good idea that Mc Donald´s sponsors healthy food, but they can lose a lot of customers because they sell fast food, so I don´t understand why they sponsor this.

  10. It is known that one of the most important problems that modern society has is people's obesity. Being fit looks an impossible thing but I don't think so. Nowadays it's becoming easier and easier to find a gym or healthy food in the supermarket because lately people have been realizing that being obese is a serious problem for our health.
    However, brands such as MacDonald don't want us to realize that, so they try to show us how "healthy" are his food and one way to make us to believe that is sponsoring the Olympic Games, which are the most important sports games in the world.
    And unfortunately, when you travel, the easiest way to eat is going to a fast food restaurant, is cheap and fast. That's why these brands are so rich.

  11. Obesity is a big problem, but I dont think that this problem is caused by McDonalds or Burger King, the person who eats everyday a BigMc with a Big Cola won´t be healthy, the same if you only eat salad, you must take proteins from meat or any other things like soja if you are vegetarian. A balanced diet needs a lot of components.

    In resume, all abuse won't be healthy and the most of people fall down into the hole of a bad alimentation.

  12. Well, the obesity exist in anywhere, is not McDonald and Coca-cola fault, because they don't oblige us to eat their food, but we are who go to eat the food.

    Even if you eat burgers, if you in the others meals consume good food like vegetables, fruit or cereals you shouldn't get fat, but you should be fit.

    So if people in UK have overweight is only their fault because you choose what to eat, and if you are fat and you haven't any willingness obviously you're going to get fat, and the only reason is you are bribon.

  13. I think obesity is one of the biggest problems in many countries today. People more and more don’t have time to eat at home after school or work, so they decided to eat at a fast food restaurant without thinking of the consequences that this can bring them. I think isn't wrong to eat a burger or some fast food from time to time , but daily this doesn’t affect just your body physically. You also run the risk of getting other diseases like cancers, stress, depression ... among others. To prevent these problems isn’t enough with take a balanced diet. We should also do exercise and have a good social life. This is the only way to feel good about ourselves and so we can afford some caprices from time to time.

  15. Obesity is the biggest problem that affects the developed countries. It affects all ages and This is because of a sedentary lifestyle and fast food.
    By referring to the article about the new campaign for McDonald's is not a bad idea,bur better than this the company could promise sell more healthy food.
    This campaign could mobilize younger consumers to do more exercise.

    1. In my opinion obesity is a problem in all the world, no only in the UK. Obesity is a very very big problem. The problem is that there are many fast food restaurant and there are many people who want a hamburguer or a hot dog, that it the real problem.

      I think the things are going to do the McDonald's are good but it's enough. There many children who said:"I want a hamburguer , a hot dog... and they eat more, more and more, and they dodn't stop and when they see their, it's too later. In my opinion the children have to do more exercise and dodn't eat bad food if they don't want to be very fat.

  18. Over the last few years obesity has become a big problem. Every year people are getting fatter, especially the younger generations. Millions of people die every day because they don't have enough food to survive, but on the other hand, in Europe, lots of people die because they eat too much.
    The USA has the highest rate of obesity, it was announced on the news that one in every four children is obese. Although the rate of obesity in Spain isn't as high as in the USA, it is still one of the highest in the world. The causes of this problem are that people eat too much, they don't eat the correct food and they don't do enough exercise. We have to put a stop to this problem if we want to be healthy and free of cardiovascular diseases in our thirties.
    It's a terrible shame to think how the human being has evolved over the years to become such pigs!
    Everyone has to help to promote the idea of healthy eating and encourage people to do more exercise. We only have one life and we have to make the most of it and make it a healthy one!!

  21. I think obesity is a serious problem because one of the most importan thing in the life is to have a good alimentation,this is the base to be a healthy person. Each year, obesity is increasing all over the world and I think this is something we should prevent,for our future and the future of those who are around us.
    I personally don't like eat at Mc Donald because the food that they sell is of dubious quality, and and for go once nothing happens ,but when there are people who go regularly and this, in a long term has bad effects on their health as cardiovascular problems or the increasing of coresterol.

  22. I know that obesity is a serious problem which is increasing every year. Many people prefer to eat fast-food than healthy food as they don't have time to cook everyday and almost always it tastes better than lettuce or whatever stew. I understand it! But we shouldn't do that usually because you know what effects this kind of food causes.
    However I don't think this is the main cause of this problem. The serious problem is that new generations are already born with a tecnology machine on their hands, so they start to stay more time with them and they get used not to going out with their friends to play. Besides, if they have a sedentary life and they eat fast-food daily, obviously they will get fatter.
    I'm sure, Albert, that when you were a child all children often went out and were playing football or to plates, and they weren't much time at home. Nowadays many people do the opposite way and they don't understand that doing sport is so healthy, and futhermore there are more and more fast-food restaurants, so people go often there.
    So I advise those people who loves eating fast food and they are fat to go out to do much sport and to have a healthier diet, but if you are a thin man you should eat all the greasy food you find because you should get fatter and doing exercise to be fit. I'm sure that if you do that, you will make out with whoever you want! Surely! xD

  23. I think that obesity is an illness that is affecting a lot of children in the last years.
    Before, the children ate better, they ate more fruit, vegetables...now moust of the children eat to much junk food, since it´s faster to cook.They also eat lots of sweets and cakes such as croisantes, biscuits...
    An other think that influence children´s obesity is that they hardly practise any physical exercise. The hours when they used to play football, tennis...now they spend the time playing video gammes or chatting on the internet.
    I think that parents should insist that their children have a good food and make them to practise some sport.

  24. I think eating healthy is very important.
    We have to have a balanced diet, eat anything and do plenty of exercise aestar strong pair.
    I think in the UK is a big problem because many people eat fast food burgers and much, I think that sometimes when fast food is not bad but eat every day is very bad.

    I think that obesity is a problem and we must control it, it is normal for children to suffer from small problems obesida and these days in big trouble.

  25. Obesity is a serious problem and that is always present. In the United Kingdom is one of the most serious problems that exist, because there are more people who are affected by this problema. Muchas of them die from it. But most people do not realize how important it is to have a healthy weight and not eating so much fat and calories. People should be more careful and better control their weight because it can lead to many health problems.

  26. I think obesity is a big problem because a lot of people, above all the children have it. Some people think it's because of the money since people that have money buy more things than they need... between those things, food.People don't know obesity cause big problems to health. The new games as Play 3,Pspp.. are the ones to be blamed, because children don't practise any sports which they need.

  27. I think that the obesity is a problem and not only in Uk in all the world.

  28. Now a days there are many people who have problems with obesity, so everyone should have a healthy diet.I think that the government should more give money and promote physical exercise and healthy diet and as well as children should be educated very frequently having a good diet and exercise doing. This is really important because obesity can lead many more diseases than alcohol (diabetes, high blood pressure ). In United Kingdom and in USA the are many fast food restaurants, so people who live there don't usually eat healthy food. I recommend everyone to eat healthy, to do exercise.

  29. Obesity is a big problem which is increasing every day. Unlike in the past decades, nowadays, in rich countries there are more and more fast-food restaurants like McDonald’s, Burger Kings, kebab shops… And this is the main cause of this problem of obesity, because eating in these fast-food restaurants is cheaper and faster than eating in healthy food restaurants. That's why people prefers this kind of food. But, although eating fast-food affects in our daily life, another cause of obesity can be the new technologies. New technologies help us every day and facilitate us many things. In fact, currently, the children spend more time watching tv, playing computer games or playing with their mobiles phone and they spend less time playing with their friends outside, therefore they do less sport than before.

    I think that people should have a healthier diet. However, this doesn’t mean that people can’t eat fast food, but they shouldn’t abuse it.

  30. I think obesity is a big problem because there are more and more people that ingest more calories than the person needs. At the moment, in the world, there are millions the people with this problem.
    The obesity is very serious because it produce many ilness like heart disease or diabetes. There are more problems produced for the obesity and they are very serious. The people should be careful with the obesity.
    The obesity is very widespread for the world because the people eat fast food in the new restaurants like McDonald's. In this restaurants there are fast food, which is very bad for the people, and there aren't healthy food. In the last years the people fond of go to fast food restaurants. Other reason that cause the obesity is the people don't do exercise. The most of people prefer stay at home playing with the computers or other new technologies than go to running or swimming.
    For different reasons the people are getting bad habits that produce obesity like eat in fast food restaurants or don't do sport. Eat fast food or games computer games instead of go out to do exercise will pass receip in the future.
    I think now there are more people obesly than before because there are more unhealthy food than before. The people who lived in the pass had an healthy life because they ate more healthy food and they never stayed at home, they were working or did something outside home.

  33. Obesity is such a well-known health problem among people from all over the world. Indeed, it is claimed that in the USA there are a huge amount of people who have this problem. So.. what can be done to solve this issue?

    To begin with, drinking could be considered the reason why there are far more obesity cases in the latest years. That is to say, for instance, in almost each fast food restaurant, there is a menu which includes free recharges of drinks. Furthermore, it doesn't increase so much the price; so due to this, the more recharges are done, the more blood-sugar level increases.

    Secondly, not only drinks can be harmful to us but also fast food. In or day-to-day life, we mainly eat ready-made food, due to the lack of time we have. In addition, the price of this food is far less expensive than others. One such instance could be the cheese hamburgers which only cost 1€ at McDonald's.

    Taking all into account, a daily gadget among teenagers also contributes to harming their health, the widely-known mobile phone. How many hours do they spend in front of it instead of hanging out with their friends? I personally believe we all ought to cut down on fast food despite the price or the taste, and we should eat healthily and be more social.
