Obesity is a serious health problem that is becoming more and more prevalent. More than two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight or have obesity.
What are the major factors causing obesity?
Obesity is the result of many factors, including genetics, diet, lifestyle and more. Some of the major causes are overeating, low levels of physical activity and a lack of education on healthy food choices. One major factor in obesity is a person's metabolism. People who have slow metabolisms will have difficulty losing weight because their bodies need fewer calories to function. Hormone imbalances can also cause obesity by increasing appetite or decreasing energy expenditure. There are also those who suffer from pre-diabetic syndrome X or metabolic syndrome which causes weight gain because of insulin resistance and high blood pressure among other things.
What are the risks of obesity?
Obesity is a huge risk for individuals and is one of the leading causes of death. Obesity has been linked to high blood pressure, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. In addition, obese people are more likely to develop other serious illnesses such as stroke, cancer or arthritis.
