There is still no single universally agreed standard for adult weight.

Obesity may be seen by many as simple, some may view it as an unacceptable sight or distortion of the beauty of our bodies, and few may understand its seriousness and yet stand idly by unable to stop it.

Obesity is an increase in body weight from the normal level as a result of fat accumulation, and this accumulation is the result of an imbalance between the energy consumed by food and the energy consumed by the body. Or a 20% increase in body weight.

Causes of obesity.

1- Dietary pattern: High-calorie food leads to the accumulation of fat in the human body, and fatty substances have a higher efficiency than carbohydrates and protein in accumulation in body tissues.
2- Lack of exercise: Studies have indicated that sport plays an important role in reducing fat and blood glucose and is active in insulin activity.
3- Psychological factors: Psychological condition plays an important role in the onset of obesity as it has been observed that some cases of depression, mental anxiety or mood swings may be accompanied by increased appetite for eating as a result of the effect of these disorders on eating centers in the brain.
4- The role of endocrine in the emergence of obesity: many obese people believe that the cause of the emergence of obesity is endocrine, we often hear the patient of obesity repeating
(The doctor told me that my smyptry is caused by an endocrine disorder) may be caused by an imbalance in the secretion of insulin hormone, an imbalance in thyroid hormones, an imbalance in the hormone hypothalamus ... Etc.
5. Genetic factors: Inheritance has a known role in the occurrence of obesity, and genetic predisposition is passed on from parents to children, especially if one or both parents are physical. Some studies have shown that if a child is obese, the probability of obesity is 33%, but if the father and mother are obese, the percentage rises to 73%, but if the father and mother have a normal weight, the child is more than 9%.
6- Increased deposition of fat and grease as a result of increased fat cell formation.
7- Low metabolic rate in the body.
8- Taking drugs such as pills and cortisone: Because the pills contain hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, these hormones cause and lead to the storage of water within the body and thus weight gain. Cortisone is particularly important as it is used in the treatment of many rheumatic diseases and skin immunological diseases characterized by being chronic and need to be treated for a long time and these complications resulting from its use accumulate fat in the area of the face and behind the neck, chest and abdomen.
9- Slow use of fat to age.
