Obesity is described as a condition of the body which is characterized by storage of excessive fat in the adipose tissue. The major cause of obesity is the consumption of excess food (calorie) in comparison to our physiological needs.
Certain types of eating habits (overeating) lead to consuming more calories than you burn, thus resulting in obesity. Nibbling between meals, fast eating/ taking less time for chewing, eating when surrounded with food rather than actually being hungry, attending frequent business lunches, eating the leftover foods of other family members, eating outside food very frequently, eating more of junk food, eating too many sweets during festive occasions, eating processed, concentrated and high fat food; emotional eating, consumption of sugar added beverages, personnel who work in different shifts, whose body clock is disturbed—all these result in overeating. Overeating (consuming more calories) is not the only cause of obesity. The body’s hormonal and metabolic regulation system also plays a major role. Hormones play an integral role in metabolism and your body’s ability to use energy.
Shweta Diwan, Dietician and founder of Slimage Diet Clinic and Aum Sharnam shares an Indian diet plan to lose weight in one week. She said, “If you are looking to lose weight, it is important to understand that it may not be an easy process. It needs hard work, willpower, and patience to lose weight and cut down belly fat. While it may be a gradual process, some people may not have the patience to wait till long to shed some kilos; especially, when you have to attend a wedding”.
