    This became one of the most common problems faced almost all the people who are aging above 40 years. After the age of 40, people can’t do much work and they get tired with the small works very much as their body doesn’t have much strength to do more work. So these people rest more and eat more so they will get overweighed very easily. BMI is the correct index for the overweight and gives the measure of the obesity. If this BMI is more than 30 is considered as overweight but the health problems with the overweight starts from the BMI more than 21.

    Some of the major reasons for this obesity are:

    • Obesity occurs due to energy imbalance of the foods that we eat and intake of high calorie food or foods with high fat content.
    • Having the foods that are low in vitamins, minerals and other micro-nutritious foods.
    • Decreased physical exercises or physical activity and sitting in only one position in the job work whole day.

    The health problems that occur due to this obesity are several. But the most common health problems that occur are:

    • First and foremost health problem due to overweight is the heart attacks and cardiovascular problems and this takes away lives of several people every year.
    • Diabetes is the also one of the health issue that rise due to obesity and makes us very difficult to treat.
    • Paralysis also occurs as the fat contents or the cholesterol blocks the blood vessels in the brain.
    • Knee pains occur as the body gets over weighted and burden on the knees and legs increases.
    • This makes us addicted to eat more and more food and titillates us to eat which is the main reason for failure to control the overweight.
