Poor diet is a primary reason for putting on weight and being obese, particularly if a person is taking in more energy than they are using up or if they are consuming a large proportion of carbohydrates and sugars. They may also not be getting a sufficient amount of exercise. As a person ages, their metabolic rate naturally decreases, which makes it easier for them to gain weight. This is why excess weight is more common in older people than younger people. Poorer people are more likely to be overweight than richer people, as unhealthy foods tend to be cheaper, and some ethnic groups have higher rates of obesity than others. Hormonal problems and taking certain types of medication can cause some people to gain weight. Stress and emotional problems can contribute towards a person eating poorly, as they can develop patterns of emotional eating. People who struggle to sleep may also be prone to snacking late at night. Dehydration can also lead to a person becoming overweight, as thirst can be misinterpreted as hunger, causing a person to eat excessively, rather than quench their thirst. Some people think that genetics have a role to play in weight gain, as children of obese parents are more likely to be overweight themselves, although this could be due to their environment.
Given that fat cells function as endocrine cells, the more fat a person has, the more oestrogen they will make. This can increase their risk of developing hormonal imbalances and serious health conditions, including breast cancer. It can also have a detrimental effect on fertility in men. Excess fat in the chest can put pressure on the vital organs and could lead to breathing difficulties, which can include sleep apnoea, where a person briefly stops breathing while they are asleep. Obesity can also cause a person to have pain in their back and joints, hypertension, disrupted microbial balance in the gut, swollen ankles and skin problems. It can lead onto serious health problems such as heart disease and stroke.

Fuelling the body on beneficial fat sources, rather than carbohydrates and sugars will make maintaining a healthy weight easier. Removing grains from the diet has helped many people to lose weight effectively. Keeping well hydrated by daily drinking 2 litres of water, will help to prevent overeating as a result of dehydration. Avoiding unhealthy habits such a smoking and drinking alcohol is also important. The drug orlistat can be taken to help reduce fat absorption and in severe cases of obesity, weight-loss surgery may be used. Treating any underlying emotional problems, perhaps through counselling, can help a person to control their eating habits. Taking appropriate measures to reduce stress levels can also help in this regard, as well as trying to get sufficient sleep. Setting up a suitable exercise regime is essential and this needs to be strenuous enough to raise the heart rate, while taking into account any existing medical problems. Emotional support from family and friends is also beneficial. Some people may find it helpful to take supplements that are designed to help with weight-loss.
Experiences and case studies
As well as helping people to lose weight, bioresonance treatment has even helped overweight pets to attain a healthier weight. A 10-year-old male cat was overweight and slow-moving as well as having other health problems. His symptoms had already improved after one treatment and after a second session, he was able to lose some weight and had become more active.
