Obesity and Bad Habits That Make You Fat

What Is The Meaning Of Obesity
The state of being grossly fat or overweight.

What is Obesity
Obesity is a condition where a person has accumulated so much body fat that it might have a negative effect on their health.
If a person's bodyweight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. If your Body Mass Index (BMI) is between 25 and 29.9 you are considered overweight.

Why Do People Become Obese:

  1. Consuming too many calories
  2. Leading a sedentary lifestyle
  3. Not Sleeping Enough 
  4. Lower rate of smoking (smoking suppresses appetite)
  5. Medications that make patients put on weigh
  6. Obesity gene


What Is The Difference Between Overweight and Obesity
Both Overweight and Obesity imply a condition of excess weight of a person. Being overweight means having more body weight than is considered normal or healthy for one’s age or build. On the other hand, obesity is the condition of being obese, i.e., excess amount of body fat with a BMI of over 30. While an overweight person will carry excess weight, he may or may not have excess accumulation of fat.

How To Prevent Obesity
According to Stanford University we can prevent obesity but how?

-Preventing Obesity in Infants
The longer babies are breastfed, the less likely they are to become overweight as they grow older. Breastfed babies are 15 to 25 percent less likely to become overweight. For those who are breastfed for six months or longer, the likelihood is 20 to 40 percent less.

-Preventing Obesity in Children and Adolescents
Young people generally become overweight or obese because they don't get enough physical activity in combination with poor eating habits. Genetics and lifestyle also contribute to a child's weight status.

-Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which is a lunar calendar based on the cycles of the moon. 
What Is The Benefits of Ramadan? Fasting has many benefits for the body as well as for the mind. It gives the body some needed respite provided one does not indulge in the night. And the rigorous discipline and code of conduct that have to be observed daily as part of fasting and for as long as thirty days contribute to one’s patience, tolerance, and overall wellbeing. These are by themselves great benefits of fasting. But beyond that we should also strive for spiritual benefits. This month sh…
