Why Am I Fat And Wat Are The Cause.

Overweight(fat) is generally defined as having more body fat than is optimally healthy. Being overweight is a common condition, especially where food supplies are plentiful and lifestyles are sedentary. 
Excess weight has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults being either overweight or obese. 
A healthy body requires a minimum amount of fat for the proper functioning of the hormonal, reproductive, and immune systems, as thermal insulation, as shock absorption for sensitive areas, and as energy for future use. But the accumulation of too much storage fat can impair movement and flexibility, and alter the appearance of the body. 

Regular activity can help prevent unhealthy weight gain and also help with weight loss, when combined with lower calories intake. if you are over weight or obese, losing weight can lower your risk for many disease. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breathing problems, osteoarthritis, gallbladder disease, sleep apnea(breathing problem while sleeping) and some cancer. 

Health Implications For Overweight 

The health implications of the overweight category are more controversial. The generally accepted view is that being overweight causes similar health problems to obesity, but to a lesser degree. Adam etal. estimated that the  risk of death increases by 20 to 40 percent among overweight or obese can increase your risk of health disease, Stroke, Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, Breathing problems, Arthritis, Gallbladder disease, Some kind of cancer. 

But excess body weight is not the only health risk. The places where you store your body fat also affect your health. Women with a pear shape tend to store fat in their hips and buttocks. Women with an apple shape store fat around their waists. If your waist is more than 35 inches, you may have a higher risk of weight related health problems. 


Being overweight is generally caused by the intake of more calories(by eating) than are expected by the body
