In order to understand how to overcome obesity first we need to understand the root causes of it.
Reasons of obesity
1. Wrong diet
The top most reason why people put on weight is because they follow wrong diet.
Obesity stems from consuming foods that is calorie dense. People become obese not by stuffing themselves with more food but by eating wrong food, by consuming more calories than their body needs.
I know you love them and you might also say that I eat such foods ones in a while so what’s a big deal?
Can you please let me know did you ever filled your petrol car with the diesel? Don’t you think it’ll work?.
Actually, it works. Please try it once. But for sure your vehicle is going to get damaged soon.
When you can’t take a risk of running your vehicle with the wrong fuel then how can you even think of feeding your stomach with the food which is not right for it?
Since your body is the most sophisticated gadget you ever had and it’s so nice to you because of which it is bearing with all the nonsense you are sending in. It surely can’t help you for a longer period.
2. Sedentary lifestyle
Physical activity has often been reduced to an absolute minimum. Gone are the days when entertainment meant taking a walk in the park with the loved ones, going for swimming or a long cycling trip with friends, going for trekking and gardening our own garden. Unfortunately, people don’t even put in efforts to cook their food as they are getting it off the shelf ready for them.
3. Lack of sleep
Sleep deprivation results in increased secretion of a hormone called Ghrelin whose function is to stimulate appetite. Lack of sleep results in slowing down the metabolism process in order to preserve your calorie reserves or fat.
Restlessness increases our stress level, stress and emotional brain networks foster eating behaviors that can lead to obesity.
4. Consumption of foods rich in fructose
Excessive fructose in our body results in increased level of cholesterol leading to fat accumulation around the organs.
5. By drinking water stored in the plastic containers
It increases the acidic level in our body which reacts with the food and affects our metabolism system. With the increase in acidic level in the body more and more food starts to decay and gets converted into fat.
Thanks to this man who demonstrated and shared this video on how drinking water stored in plastic containers will affect us.

- Start using millets in your diet which will help you keep energetic for a longer time and don’t stimulate your appetite. When you don’t feel like eating you actually don’t feed yourself when you don’t need it.
Note: as there are totally 9 different types of millets are available you need to use them alternatively. For example, if you are using Foxtail millet for two days then you should use any other millet for another two days. No millets should be consumed continuously.

- Increase your physical activity in day today life. If you are too busy to spend time on exercise. Use stairs rather than lifts. Take a walk at least for 20 minutes every day.
Obesity in women
Let’s understand how obesity affects women more than men.
It is often noticed that women are more concerned about their weight than men. Even though they take more care about their diet and routine they tend to put on weight very easily than men.
The biggest factor which contributes for women to put on weight is their WORRY.
As you worry more it increases your stress which affects your emotional behavior which foster eating habits resulting in obesity.
Some of the common effects of obesity in women are:
Hair fall, pale skin, low energy level, less mental clarity, emotional disturbance, high blood pressure, diabetes, PCOD and many more.
Due to modern lifestyle many cases of PCOD are been registered every day.
PCOD in women is observed more in those who has excess fat in their body as this excess fat will damage the liver cells and deactivates the glucose receptacles which can lead them to diabetes.

PCOD, or Polycystic ovary disease is a kind of hormonal disorder that affects one in 10 women. It refers to a condition when a woman has a number of small cysts in the ovaries. Besides unpredictable hormonal behavior, this condition can trigger diabetes, infertility, acne, delayed menstrual cycle and many other uneasiness.
