Morbid factors:
 Some cases of illness contribute to exposure to obesity such as multiple ovarian cysts and hypothyroidism.
Environmental factors:
 Your lifestyle and the quality of food you take along with the level of physical activity will affect your weight.
Psychological and physiological factors:
 Eating food when feeling angry, sad, or depressed and adopting a lifestyle of eating too much food and lack of movement will lead to a heavier weight.
