    Undoubtedly, Obesity is a major issue experiencing by a myriad number of people throughout the globe. Unfortunately, wealthy countries are pre-eminent. This essay will certainly analyze and the issue and figure out viable solutions.

    To commence with, The main considerable reason for obesity is having unhealthy food habits and unsurprisingly fast food is incredibly popular in developed countries. Moreover, the consumers are always hands-on in making money and they are not fascinated with healthy food. In addition to this, a sedentary lifestyle is a massive cause behind this issue and those immeasurable passive working hours make people inactive and leads to overweight.

Firstly, public awareness is a significant factor and uncountable gyms are available with required amenities though need to advertise properly. Mankind should make few amendments in one’s daily routine, for example, eliminating junk food, taking small walks instead of car to nearby places, and working out and making fitness goals are the foremost practices to overcome this obstacle.

      Haritha, don’t use capitalisation after punctuations. Your writing is conclusive and it contains most of the points, although a more conceptual clarity would entail better results. It’d better if you give more concise points. In the third paragraph, you need to work on the syntax and cohesiveness of the text and in the second paragraph, make use of better adjectives rather than ‘unsurprisingly’, etc.

    Obesity is a growing concern in many countries, especially in nations with the established economies. This essay is going to put light on this same problem and provide a logical solution to it.

    In recent times countries with an economic boom have started seeing common health concerns, which include obesity as well. The main reason for that is the quick availability of fast food and a sedentary lifestyle. For Instance, nowadays, companies like dominos/MacDonald’s can be easily found within a 500-meter radius of every city, promoting its consumption in youth. As we know, these pre-prepared foods contain a high amount of sodium and excessive fat, which promotes obesity in the body. The other aspect would be a sedentary lifestyle due to a high workload; hence, one does not burn enough calories compared to the calories he consumes.

    The practical solution to such problems is always promoting awareness in youth rather than enforcing any solution to them . The government should promote healthy living by organizing health events and opening more food centers that provide quality organic food. In contrast, MNC’s should also adapt their work culture to provide multiple breaks so that employees can avoid sitting for long hours and increases their activity level.

    In conclusion, Fighting obesity is not a one-day task but can be achieved over a period of time with some constant lifestyle changes, and hence we can avoid diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure, which comes along with it.

      Rahul, you need to think of a better beginning towards the essay and if you’re quoting famous food-chains, make sure to always use capitalisation and use the correct spellings, if you do not know the correct, its better to use something more generalised. A coherence is not adjusted between paragraph three and conclusion.

However, countries like Australia, Europe, USA and presently India are adopting the fitness change and implement in their society to broaden the mindset of individuals.

    The main reasons for people putting on weight is that they do not keep check on what they eat and lack of physical activity. As it provided ample energy, food with high amounts of sugar and fat was a luxury human ancestors who were living in the wild craved for and we inherited this craving. This food did not cause any issues to our ancestors as they rarely had the chance to eat them which is not the case for the current generation. For instance, 60% of USA’s population suffer from obesity.

    Some ways we can solve the problem is making people aware of the consequences of bad diet and encouraging them to exercise regularly. The governments have to provide proper guidelines on how much a certain type of food one can consume per day. Charity marathons is one way to encourage physical activity. For example, marathon organizers can get their funding from the government and donate a dollar for each kilometer one runs, thereby encouraging donations and a healthy lifestyle.

    The advancement in science and technology has made people lead a much more sophisticated and comfortable life. However, it has adversely provided the stimuli for people to lead a sedentary life without concerns about their health. It has created a serious health issue of obesity amongst the masses, especially in developed countries. This essay will analyze the issue and provide a feasible solution.

    The major causes of obesity are over-reliance on technology and having unhealthy food habits. In developed economies, technological advancements are exposed to people much earlier compared to those in developing countries, which in some way or other is attributed to their stationary lifestyle. Moreover, after the advent of e-commerce firms, people are now even reluctant to get out of their homes as everything can be ordered online and delivered to their doorstep. Nowadays in every major city, there is a fast-food restaurant every 500 meters serving loads of junk food, which when consumed regularly by an innate city dweller would only Fastracks his way towards obesity.

    One viable solution to overcome this muddle is that the government should initiate a campaign and create awareness amongst people to lead a healthy lifestyle. If people are educated about the causes of obesity, it would propel them in taking steps towards leading a healthy life. Furthermore, providing affordable memberships in gyms and other sporting facilities would create wonders in the long run. Companies should invest in creating fitness centers and provide healthy food to their employees. For Instance, workers with long working hours can be made to break intermittently to indulge in fitness activities, thus breaking their sedentary time in front of a computer screen.

    To summarize, obesity is mainly caused due to inactive lifestyle which is a result of over-reliance on technology. Hence people should invest more time and money to remain healthy and governments should also guide them by educating them on the ill effects of obesity.

    Now a days, the countries which are technology driven generally suffer from the problem of obesity. This essay will draw your attention to the problems associated with this notion and suggest some solutions to curb this situation.

    The substantial reason of obesity is elevation of artificial intelligence & robotics technologies in the developed countries around the globe. These technologies have been developed to decline the significant amount of manual work at the workplace, as most of the repetitive & subtle work which was performed by the humans earlier, now performed by robots or automation. It’s been noticed recently, that the people suffering from obesity problems has been increased in the developed countries rather than developing countries due to rise of colossus technologies.

    In my opinion, the rational solution to this problem is to increase the numbers of jobs which should be human driven & curtail more physical strength rather than obsoleting manual jobs & replacing it by machines. After observing the increase of sedentary lifestyle, most of the organizations in the developed countries have changed their working culture and mindset and stopped automating their all processes & start promoting physical work and activities at their workplace to make employees more active, mobile & free from diseases.

    In the conclusion, due to the increase of technologies, people become more vulnerable to the disease of obesity. However, in order to overcome this problem, the most effective solution is to stop vanishing manual jobs in the market which are physically demanding.
