Obesity and overweight can be said to be two sides of a coin. Obesity is the effect and overweight is the consequence. Actually obesity is a disease which leads to abnormal rise of body weight.
And this excessive gain of weight makes a negative impact on the formation of body parts and also leads to immobility. Besides excessive weight gain also leads to different kinds of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure and osteoarthritis.
Obesity is actually a condition of the body in which the natural energy reserve inside the body, which is stored in the fatty tissues increases abruptly leading to the deformation of body parts and that’s why people gain excessive body weight. Obesity occurs in human body for various reasons.
It may occur due to genetic factors, might occur due to environmental problems, mental problems and so on. But excessive eating of foods is considered to be one of the major reasons behind the occurrence of obesity.
People eat different kinds of food throughout the day, not only to feel up their stomach but also because they need food. Among all foods that people eat some are rich in protein that add strength to our body, some foods are rich in carbohydrate that produce both strength and energy to our body which work like fuel for the movement of the body parts.
On the other hand some foods are rich in vitamin that helps people to resist diseases and get rid of injuries quickly. Similarly people eat some kinds of foods that are rich in fatty acids that create natural energy reserve. With the physical movement this natural energy gets burned and once again it gets refilled with the consumption of foods rich in fatty acids.
Obesity is a stage when this stored energy is not burnt and this leads to deformation of body parts, gain of excessive weight and all other symptoms of obesity.
Inactivity is one of the major encouraging factors for obesity and overweight. Lot of people who are reluctant of doing physical activities become victim of obesity as the energy stored inside the body does not get exhausted.
That’s why doctors stress more on physical exercises and weight loss rather than medications in case of obesity. Patients of obesity are advised to do different types of physical exercises by the physicians so that the stored energy reserve inside the body gets gradually burnt out.
Besides most of the medicines that are prescribed for patients of obesity are given for reducing excess fats from all parts of abdomen.
Another effective way to get rid of obesity is to change the food habit. People who are patients of obesity should avoid eating foods rich in fatty acids and carbohydrate and should green vegetables and foods rich in protein as much as possible.
If you are gradually gaining body weight and feeling that your body parts are getting deformed join a fitness center and start doing some physical exercises now and maintain the diet advised by physicians or nutritionist. Hopefully you will be able to stay away from obesity.
