Obesity in children is also emerging as a major problem now-a-days, let alone the adults.

Exercise of course plays a very important role but treatment for obesity begins and ends with A Diet Plan. But this is precisely where we fail to persist. We start off really well though. An all fruit diet or a bowl of steamed veggies for breakfast. No looking at junk food. Taking the stairs to office. Having home cooked carb free lunch.

Diet control and exercise are only the ways to reduce obesity. If the fat is at alarming level based on tests, you can go for some bariatric surgery.
