Obesity is a complex condition involving excessive amounts of body fat. I do not view obesity as a cosmetic concern but a severe medical challenge that increases a person’s risk of other health problems and diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart diseases, and some types of cancers. There are various reasons why some people are unsuccessfully battling to avoid obesity. Obesity results from several factors such as inherited factors, personal diet, environmental factors, and exercise choices.
