The Wider Image: Temptation everywhere: Mexican children struggle with obesity
Food that contains approximately 5,200 calories that Pricila, 18, used to consume in one day before taking part in a weight loss program, is displayed for a photograph at her family home in Acolman, Mexico, January 12, 2021. Pricila had a gastric sleeve surgery, during which a part of the stomach is removed, for weight loss at 16. Realization hit her when aged 15 she weighed 113 kilos, equal to her father. Pricila, who has a metabolic disease, said even with exercise and a nutrition plan her weight loss had stalled, making her a candidate for the surgery. "When I tried to lose weight, there was temptation everywhere," she said. Pricila now weighs 83 kilos. "It was a real feat, especially because I was so used to eating junk food, sweets, all the time." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso SEARCH "JASSO OBESITY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
