More than 2 in 3 women in the United States are overweight or suffer from obesity.
Extra weight leads to many diseases that affect women, such as heart disease and diabetes.
People develop obesity when their body stores more calories than it uses over time.
Your body needs calories (and essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients) to work properly and to be active. But if your body stores more calories than it uses, you will gain weight.
While it’s true that the food you eat is an important part of weight gain or loss, other parts of your life that you do not control can make obesity more likely.
Obesity does not happen overnight. It develops gradually over time, as a result of poor diet and lifestyle choices, such as:
- Eating large amounts of processed or fast food.
- Drinking too much alcohol.
- Eating larger portions than you need.
- Lack of physical activity.
