Gaining weight is terrible. Yes! it actually is. Looking at yourself in the mirror and finding a flabby and saggy belly with thick arms and waist like a room is worse than a nightmare. The most pathetic thing about this problem is that most of the people are actually unaware or do not know the real reason behind it. Overeating is believed to be the only reason of weight gain by the masses. However, it is very important to understand that though eating in excess is responsible for obesity but many other causes are equally responsible for the same. Hormonal changes, certain physical, mental and emotional conditions, and many genetic factors are also credited with causing obesity in many people around the world. This blog is important because it will inform you about some strange reasons that cause obesity in people.
Certain digestive disorders like slow or irregular bowel movements also account for excessive weight gain. People suffering from constipation generally suffer from obesity too. This is so because dehydration and bad flora in the gut cause weight gain.

Plantar fasciitis is a musculoskeletal condition in which the plantar fascia, a flat band of tissue or ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes and supports the arch of the foot, gets irritated, swollen or weak, thus resulting in immense pain and difficulty in walking or running. Donald Bohay, MD, cochairman of the public education committee for the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society says that the weight gain during the condition of Plantar fasciitis is almost equal to that during osteoarthritis or hip and knee pain. The reason for this gain in weight is that since the joints or the foot, that are the most important parts of the body for performing the motion, are hurt, hence, no physical work is possible. No physical activities result in low metabolism which in turn results in weight gain and obesity

A person should never eat in excess and on the same hand, avoid junk foods, oily and spicy dishes and also stay away from any fatty food. Regular workouts or sports should be included in the everyday routine. If you cannot run, go for swimming. If you don't want to spend much, simply go for a football or a basketball match with your group of friends every day.
The reasons for obesity mentioned above are uncommon but it is not impossible to cure them. A lot of hard work is required and a firm dedication will be appreciated and you will soon regain your normal life.
