One of the dangers of obesity is the chances to get various diseases. Having excess fat in the body, especially in the hip area, increases the risk of serious health disorders and is associated with the risk of developing certain types of diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Don’t overlook the dangers of stalking from obesity. Ideal weight is great for health support. Therefore, it is important for us to keep our weight off, especially for those in our family with a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and high cholesterol levels. If there are family members with the disease, losing weight can reduce the risk of developing the same disease.

Losing weight can be done in a number of ways, such as exercising and maintaining a healthy diet by increasing your intake of vegetables and fruits and high protein foods. Many disorders, both physical and psychological, can appear as a result of obesity, including:

  • Chronic illness

The emergence of chronic illness is obesity that is very important to be aware of. Diseases are most often associated with obesity, including heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, liver disease and gall bladder.

Overweight can also affect the performance of the insulin hormone that causes diabetes, which increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. Excess fat interferes with the heart because it causes cholesterol, increased blood pressure, and arterial obstruction. For women, obesity can lead to irregular months, difficulty in pregnancy, and infertility.

  • Causes sleep disruption

People who are obese are at higher risk for sleep disorders. One of them is sleep apnea, which is the condition when people stop breathing several times during sleep. It’s a serious sleep disorder. This condition drastically reduces oxygen levels, affecting the heart and blood vessels and increasing the risk of diabetes and stroke.

  • Causes irritation to the knees and hips

Overweight can increase the risk of osteoporosis. In addition, you are at risk for pain in the knee and back joints due to the body supporting excessive loads.

  • Increase your risk of getting cancer

In men, obesity can also increase the risk of various types of cancer, such as esophageal cancer, kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and colon cancer. While in women, obesity can increase the risk of kidney cancer, gall bladder cancer, esophageal cancer, and cervical cancer.

  • Discrimination and insecurity

Adolescents with obesity tend to have psychological and social problems. They may grow up to be teenagers who are not confident and are subjected to discrimination or bullying from their peers.

There are many medical reasons to avoid your body from getting fat. To diagnose whether you are overweight or even obese, you can calculate your body index. If you fall into the category of overweight, it is best to consult a doctor.


You need to change some habits which may lead your body to gain weight unknowingly. Habits can be gained weight:

  • Not focusing on your meal

Eating while watching television will make us forget, we unwittingly put food in the mouth again and again. We don’t even know the taste of the food we eat. Even a bag of salty popcorn can disappear in a matter of seconds. Focusing on the food, taste and every bit of it can help us to realize when we are full.

  • Lack of sleep

When you sleep less, the cortisol hormone is produced, and it can regulate your appetite. You will feel hungry when you are not sleeping, even when you are full. Lack of sleep also increases the storage of fat in the body.

  • Eat after dinner

Eating after dinner is a habit to change, especially if you involve eating sweet foods, such as chocolate cakes. We recommend that you replace it with warm tea or low-calorie foods.

  • Drinking less

Drinking enough white water can make you look young and healthy. Also, the digestive system works well. According to Molly Kimball, a New Orleans nutrition writer, the body sometimes misinterprets tiredness into hunger. Tiredness can be caused by dehydration. The November 2008 study mentioned the connection between increased water intake and the increase in weight loss. The research found that a person who consumed a diet of eight glasses twice a day before mealtime lost about 3 kg.
