Losing weight seems to have become a modern day obsession. The reason behind the rapid increase in weight of most of people appears to be the comforts of modern day.
Excess weight or obesity means the piling up of extra fat in the body. Undisciplined daily routine and improper lifestyle appear to be the main culprit for the increase in weight. Obesity should be taken care of at the earliest as it can lead to serious complications like diabetes, cardiac ailments and high blood pressure among others. It is interesting to note here that the rural population is comparatively much less affected by the problem of increase in weight. The reason being the rural people are constantly on the move and this keeps their metabolism at the right level. The high fat foods are also normally not available in rural areas. On the other hand the urban people have the problem of plenty. Normal activities, which would physically benefit them greatly, are taken care of either by machines or support staff leaving almost no scope for physical activities. Add to this the intake of junk food which has high fat content makes matter worse.
