Symptoms and Causes
Obesity’s most apparent symptom is weight gain, in which your weight is 20% higher than your normal BMI. Other symptoms that accompany obesity are
- Quick exhaustion from physical activity
- Shortness of breath
- Stretch marks
- Varicose veins

It is caused by consuming more calories than burning per day. Taking calorie-rich diets like fast foods, binge eating due to anxiety or stress, genetics, metabolic issues, hormonal imbalance, and inactivity are some potential causes of obesity.
