The World Health Organization (WHO) has consistently reported that overweight and obesity are causing a significant weakening in the health of the world’s population [1]. Obesity has nearly tripled to date, in 2019 it was estimated that 38.2 million children aged 5-19 years were overweight or obese, being a problem in high, middle and low-income countries, particularly in urban settings, this increase occurred similarly among boys and girls [2]. There is research that in cold environments obesity can develop more easily because this climate influences hormones related to hunger, increasing appetite towards excessive intake and inactivity [3].
