By general acceptance, obesity is the result of bad nutritional habits.

A bad habit is like second nature and it is acquired over a long period of time. They are implemented into the subconscious driving human behavior to negative consequences.

Bad nutritional habits influence weight condition leading to obesity. Some of the causes of bad nutrition habits are boredom, stress, tension and different complexes. Food becomes the substitution for these causes and before too long, obesity sets in. Most people become concerned that they’re obese, eat more and a vicious cycle is established.

If you are desperately trying to keep your own front in the battle of overeating, then here is something that you should be wary of: stress, sleep deprivation and tempting food.

  1. Stress. Stress and obesity go together. In essence, stress itself is not negative but its outcomes are. Overweight-ness and obesity are related to stress in more than one ways. Stress may leads lack of control of over eating. Stress is associated with bad nutritional habits like eating much more rapidly than normal or eating until feeling uncomfortably full. You must have experienced that you subconsciously tend to eat unhealthy food in unreasonable amounts when you are tense.
  2. Sleep deprivation. Get some sleep. It a surprisingly strong link between the amount of shut-eye people get and their risk of becoming obese. Sleep deprivation lowers leptin, a blood protein that suppresses appetite and seems to affect how the brain senses when the body has had enough food. Sleep deprivation also raises levels of grehlin, a substance that makes people want to eat.
  3. Tempting food. Studies have shown that when there is more choice available people tend to eat more. Even the sight or smell of tempting food can override the body’s natural mechanism of regulation so people eat large amounts of food when not feeling physically hungry .
