o·be·si·ty ( -b s -t )
The condition of being obese; increased body weight caused by excessive accumulation of fat.
Obesity today is a widely spread nutritional disorder that can affect anybody at any age across North America, majority of the reason being because there are so many fast food restaurants at just about every corner. With its low prices people are not going to be making the right decisions in what type of food they consume in their diet. Some examples of the junk food would be: Microwave dinners, snack foods like potato chips, which have high calories. It is not necessarily junk foods that make people obese and fat. Too many carbohydrates and foods with lots of starch in an individual’s diet can also cause them to gain undesired weight. It is not always someone’s dietary decision that makes him or her obese. Genetics play a monumental factor in a person’s weight. For example, if a child is born with two obese parents there is an 80 percent of a chance that the child can be born or become obese later in his or her life. Pregnancy can make the mother gain about 20 pounds after giving birth. Another said cause of weight gain is when the energy intake is more then the energy outtake in the body. That is not always the case.
“According to recent reports, more than six in 10 adults are overweight or obese, and the number of overweight children is on the rise.” Is a quote taken from the McDonalds website.

Some other problems for obesity can also be a result as problems such as:
· Laziness- Inactivity resulting from a dislike of physical activity.
· Psychological depression- Sad feelings of gloom and inadequacy, causing them to sometimes over eat even they are not hungry
· Genetically- As stated above. When it is passed down a family line, making it almost inevitable for children to born obese
If you were to ask someone how it feels to be obese, the given reply would probably be that they feel unattractive, and have low self-esteem, which can cause an indirect mental illness. This mental illness in some cases may lead to the person becoming so down and depressed that they may make an attempt and sometimes be successful in committing suicide.
Being obese puts the person at risk of developing sicknesses and diseases like, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes (type 2), and some forms of cancer (prostate, breast and bowel.)
There is something similar but opposite to obesity. It is a sickness known as anorexia. Anorexia is a case in which an individual thinks he or she is fat and overweight, when in fact they are not. Usually pressuring themselves to throw up after meals, they have just completed consuming. A continuous habit of this makes the subject a bulimic.
In some cases obese people presume that it is the fast food restaurants are to blame for the problem. The restaurants have a simple argument to that, which is that they are not responsible for the individual’s decision to refuse to eat the dietary foods on the menu, which is provided for all.
The usual reaction of people when an extremely obese person is spotted is that they tend to laugh or snicker, and with a bit more of an impudent personality they would have the nerve to look at the person with revulsion. Some overweight people handle stress by eating, which in fact put them in that situation in the first place. The disrespectful attitude of the people does not help the case.
