Abstract
Introduction: Today’s time is advancing in all aspects and the senior citizen are getting less social, more psychologically depressed with the use of internet, facebook, whattsapp. Aim: The purpose of study is to correct BMI, to find out social & psychological factor leading obesity, to correct nutritional deficiency, to educate about right nutrition. The social factors are: loss of one partner, depression, and children get married, living alone, having less intake leading to poor nutritional status eating imbalanced meals, skipping meals. The physiological factors are: do not have couple of teeth, dentures, diabetes, hypertension, piles and indigestion. Methodology: 508 (60 – 80 years) senior citizen workshops were conducted, recipes developed, and it had been given to them to include in daily diet and special performa & psychological test was developed. They were educated about calorie dense nutrient dense foods, with more immunity booster. They developed support group to share their experiences on psychological as well as social factors leading to obesity (alcohol consumption due to various reasons, loss of family members etc.). Results: Social factors remained significant predictors of BMI after controlling for all health behaviors. Neither social factors alone, nor health behaviors alone, adequately explained the variance in BMI. Gender specific interactions were found between social factors and individual health behaviors. Results suggest that social factors & psychological factors moderate the relation between BMI and weight – related behavior that has given overall metaphorical paralysis of our brain and all body organs, because we are depending on more machines and this gives warning to change to our grandfathers day, more outgoing to nature.
