Obesity Causes

Weight gain and eventual obesity occurs when energy intake is greater than energy expenditure. These energy needs are determined by factors we can influence and those that we cannot.

Factors that can be controlled include food intake and physical activity. Uncontrollable factors include genetics (sex, body habitus), age and the presence of certain medical conditions that can cause weight gain.
