    Obesity is defined as having an excessive amount of body fat. Obesity is more than just a cosmetic concern, though. It increases your risk of diseases and health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.

    Although there are genetic and hormonal influences on body weight, obesity occurs when you take in more calories than you burn through exercise and normal daily activities. Your body stores these excess calories as fat. Obesity usually results from a combination of causes and contributing factors, including:

    The most common causes for obesity :

    1- Lack of Energy Balance
    2- Unhealthy diet and eating habits
    3- An Inactive Lifestyle
    4- Environment
    5- Genes and Family History
    6- Health Conditions
    7- Medicines
    8- Emotional Factors
    9- Smoking
    10- Age
    11- Pregnancy
    12- Lack of Sleep
