Weight and obesity
Fighting obesity and losing weight have become some of the main health concerns of our generation, and for good reason. Being overweight can lead to serious complications in one’s health and increase the risk of heart failure, diabetes, and certain cancers. In addition, excess weight can have significant negative effects on a person’s joints, breathing, sleep, mood, and energy levels.
There’s a large number of factors that can contribute to people becoming overweight. Poor nutrition and lack of exercise are the most common causes, as well as overeating, hormone imbalances, and slowed metabolism.
