Causes of women’s obesity

2년 전

It is one of the causes of obesity, especially among women, where weight gain may be a sign of melancholy. There are, actually, many other symptoms of this case of obesity such as appetite fluctuation, difficulty of concentration, feeling guilty or going through a state of despair and over thinking and attempting suicide.
The intense and the chronic stress is related also to weight and abdominal fat gain, where the body secretes cortisol significantly whenever it suffers from pressure and tension in order to get prepared to respond by either facing stress or withdrawing completely. This hormone controls the storage of fat in the body, that’s why people who are exposed to a large amount of stress and pressure are advised to meditate and take a deep breath, which is a way to repel the effects of cortisol.
The metabolism begins to slow down when getting older leading to weight gain especially among women. Daily exercise can help with high intensity, and strength training more than once a week increases the speed of metabolism, builds muscles that do not contain fat and burn a lot of calories.
Food and diet are also key causes behind weight gain or loss. In fact, people get fat when the body stores a lot of calories. Although the body needs calories to be able to do various activities and work, women may be obese if they consume more than what they need.
Pregnancy is another major reason why women get overweight and some women may experience difficulty losing weight after giving birth, which contributes to obesity in many women.
The weight gained during pregnancy is derived from the fetus and not from the accumulation of fat. It is possible to determine the total weight gained, which can be up to 16 kg by explaining that as follows:
• Actually, approximately the weight of the fetus reaches 3.5 kilograms.
• The weight of the Placenta is 1 to 1.5 kg.
• The amniotic fluid weighs from 1 to 1.5 kg.
• The weight of the breast tissue in pregnant women ranges from 1 to 1.5 kg
