True obesity (defined as a 20 percent excess of body weight) can cause physical problems. If your weight is enough to restrict movement it may be difficult to take exercise. Arthritis may also be exacerbated by weight, and obesity may be a cause of late-onset diabetes as well as of cancer of the colon and rectum in men. It has also been associated with heart disease and high blood pressure.
But why do people become obese in the first place? The answer lies in a complex interaction between eating styles, genetic inheritance, exercise, and your physiological set point. Other factors involved in the complex process of weight gain include food allergies, nutritional deficiencies, chemical toxicity, a sluggish metabolism, lack of exercise, a diet high in refined and processed foods or insulin imbalance.
