Reasons of obesity

Faulty lifestyle

Now days, in this materialistic world, we are leading very hectic lives and do not follow a disciplined lifestyle. We have a myopic outlook towards life i.e. to earn money and accumulate all the luxurious things in whatever way possible, no matter even if the peace of mind, health, good sleep, family life etc is sacrificed. We try to do numerous works at a time and do not concentrate on one thing and are always in hurry. The unorganized and haphazard life schedule has not left any fix time for getting up in the morning, sleeping, eating or  physical exercise/yoga. This is the primary cause of developing various diseases.

Unbalanced diet

Nowadays we give preference to junk and spicy food, deep-fry food,processesd food,ice cream and western snacks in place of wholesome and nutritious diet. Intake of high fat diets chocolates,sweets, wafers and high carbohydrate food like potatoes,rice and pasta lose nutrition balance and causes deposition of excess fat on body. Eating too much than the required amount of dietary intake may also cause obesity.

Lack of exercise/yoga

Physical inactivity developes lithargicness and necessary hormones are not released in our body in sufficient quantity for the smooth functioning of our vital organs. Lack of execises and restricted movability of body is also one of the the factor of obesity as what we eat is converted in calories and if do not burn excess calories it may deposit as fat in our body.

Psychological

Depression, anxiety, trauma and stress  are the leading psychological factors which may cause eating disorder. Phychological factors like overeating and under exercising could also result in obesity.

Medical reasons

Medical conditions like thyroid and neurological problem may also cause obesity.

Heridity,genetic

Bad effects of obesity—-Health risks

Obesity is also the main reason of joints problem particularly knee joints.

Prevention and controlling of obesity

“I am maintaining my weight by simply following the old theory of my ancestors of lifestyle and food habits.. My height is 165 cms and my weight is 56 kgs and my weight has never been varied for more than ± three kgs in the last 42years execept two occassions in may 1985 and june 2002 when I was confined to bed due to illness and lost 4-5 kgs for a short duration. I believe that problem of obesity and over weight can be controlled by doing regular exercises, change in lifestyle and food habits but if you have allowed your body to gain weight and have  become over weight for a long time then it is very difficult to lose the weight to desired level by changing the life style and food habits only. You will have to seek additional natural options to lose the weight.”
