In 90% of cases, the cause of overweight is the usual overeating, which causes primary alimentary obesity. There is an imbalance between the amount of energy coming from food and the one that the body spends. Unused calories are converted into fat, which accumulates in fat depots - subcutaneous tissue, omentum, internal organs, etc.

Obesity in women has other causes:

hereditary predisposition. If parents suffered from excess weight, it is highly likely that children will also face this problem during their lives.
Wrong eating behavior - the habit of eating before bedtime, "jamming" stress.
Passive lifestyle. The less a person moves, the more calories remain that are converted into fat.
Physiological changes in a woman's body: pregnancy, menopause, lactation.
Taking certain psychotropic, hormonal drugs: steroids, antidepressants, contraceptives, etc.
Abuse of fast food, bakery products, fatty foods, fast carbohydrates.
Endocrine diseases: diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, etc.
Genetically determined pathologies of the activity of enzymes that break down fats.
Human weight is under neurohumoral control. The hypothalamus is responsible for the severity of food motivation, that is, feelings of satiety and hunger. In this regard, the cause of obesity can be dysfunction of the central nervous system, infectious diseases, traumatic brain injury.

Obese people are 2 times more likely to have hypertension, 4 times more likely to have coronary heart disease, angina pectoris. Even the flu and SARS are more severe and longer, often accompanied by complications.
