There will be many reasons for obesity. Offcourse high calorie food and fats are one of the major reason for obesity. In addition to these malfunction of endocrine glands will also lead to obesity. In children the main reasons for obesity are genetic factors and imbalance of hormones.

definitely not the case. everything depends on ourselves by how much food calorie is. also depends on whether or not exercising. as if exercising and calorie food to eat that will not affect us if sport. nice day!

Another possible reason for obesity is inactivity. Food, instead of being burned and used by the body, are just being stored because of a sedentary lifestyle. Also, some conditions like Hypothyroidism can cause it. In Hypothyroidism, the body's metabolism is slow. Even if that person eats amount of food that seems adequate, he/she may easily gain fat.
