There are other factors affecting weight gain and obesity and these need more attention such as genetic makeup and pre-existing medical conditions.
The rate of burning calories is metabolism. Everyone has their own metabolic rates that are why sometimes, there people who really eat a lot but never get fat whereas there are those who deprive themselves of eating yet still easily get fat. Basal Metabolic Rate is the relative caloric needs of each person. More and more people get obese nowadays mainly because of lifestyle. With modern technology, we donâ€™t need to move around much. With all the progress and advancement, the environment seems to be more stressful. As the cost of our daily needs increase, everyone seems too busy to do anything else but work and sleep. With this type of lifestyle, we develop very poor eating habits. There is little time left for preparing homemade food and junk fast food seems like a common option.
