Hey, even you too…

Most of your casual conversation within your social circle starts with weight gain. Overweight or obesity has become a hot topic over the past few years. Obesity and its effects are commonly discussed by various healthcare institutions and NGOs around the globe. Is eating junk and unhealthy foods the reason for weight gain?

Causes of Obesity

Obesity is defined as the excessive accumulation of fat that puts an individual’s health at risk. Obesity is due to excessive consumption and lack of exercise or physical activities. When you consume more calories but do not engage in activities that help in burning out these calories, accumulation of fat occurs leading to weight gain. When you speak about calories on average a healthy man requires 2500 calories in a day to maintain a healthy weight and a woman requires 2000 calories.

  • If you are consuming more than the required calories and stay away from exercise you will gain more weight.
  • Poor diet and eating habits are yet another reason for obesity. It does not happen in a few days, a gradual process that is usually unnoticed or not addressed with the right lifestyle practices.
  • In some cases, certain medications like corticosteroids and antidepressants contribute to weight gain. Even people having thyroid problems tend to gain weight.
  • Genetic traits from parents are one of the reasons for gaining weight.
