What is obesity?

Obesity is defined on the basis of BMI or body mass index. Too much fat in proportion to your body weight. Obesity increases the risk of many diseases such as:

  • cardiovascular disease
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke
  • some cancers
  • insulin resistance
  • atherosclerosis - hardening and narrowing of the arteries
  • type 2 diabetes
  • gout
  • cataracts
  • sleep apnoea

Most of these risks can be reduced with healthy lifestyle changes such as healthy eating and regular exercise.

Causes of obesity

 

The cause of obesity is eating more food than your body burns.

It may also result from eating too many of the wrong types of food. Some underlying medical conditions can contribute to weight gain.

There may also be psychological and emotional factors involved in overeating or poor eating habits. A lack of motivation to exercise and change eating habits are self-sabotaging behaviours that often stem from poor self-esteem and self-image.

Depression, anxiety and compulsive behaviours like binge eating and excess alcohol consumption may be contributing to weight gain and the loss of ability to lose weight.

Our counsellor can help to identify emotional and psychological factors stopping you from losing weight.
