People suffering from obesity may not lose weight by only eating less and doing exercise.
Three factors are externally responsible for obesity and obesity control. These are:
Nutrition: Certain foods, such as refined carbohydrates and unsaturated fats, contribute the most to obesity
Medicine: Certain prescription medicine, including anti-depressants, steroids, contraceptives, medications for diabetes, hypertension, migraines, seizures, bipolar disorder, allergies, insomnia, and a host of others, are associated with weight gain.
Sleep: Disrupted sleep or less than 7 hours or more than 9 hours of sleep can lead to obesity. Difficulty in breathing can also be a reason for disturbed sleep.
Obesity appears as a polygenic condition. It is affected by environmental factors (mainly unbalanced dietary patterns and physical inactivity). We will have to consider genetic factors in the fat reduction process. These are associated with a negative energy balance. (Martinez et al., 2008)
Simplistic prescriptions like eating less, creating a calorie deficit, doing yoga, or going to the gym, no wonder, do not yield results.
My research on Natural Solutions for Obesity taught me to look at this phenomenon holistically. The solutions are holistic, multi-disciplinary. They are a combination of measures that help the body address underlying issues and then resort to the standard eat less, creating calorie deficit solutions that everyone talks about.
