Weight management has become the number one cause for a variety of diseases and medical conditions. Irregular eating habits coupled with increased intake of junk foods or continuous intake of excess calories and leading sedentary lives are the most common causes for weight gain. Some of the dangers of improper weight management can lead to diseases such as: High blood pressure (Hypertension), High LDL and Triglycerides (Dyslipidaemia), Type 2 diabetes Stroke, Coronary heart disease, Gallbladder diseases, Osteoarthritis, Sleep apnea, Breathing issues and many types of cancers. It can also result in a low quality of life besides giving rise to many acute mental illnesses such as clinical depression, excessive anxiety, suicidal tendencies, etc. Even people who are seemingly thin can have a protruding stomach (visceral fat) that can still be dangerous. Greater the weight, lesser the flexibility resulting in diminished abilities to perform regular bodily functions.
