Psychological Implications

Obesity can result in:

  • body image disorders: obese people often despise a body they find ugly;
  • bad self-esteem: guilt complex, self-aversion;
  • feeling misunderstood or excluded because of the social and medical intolerance surrounding obesity;
  • a depressive state caused by too restrictive diets or by repeated therapeutic failure

Obesity can also cause:

  • medical disruption of employment;
  • employment problems;
  • lower remuneration;
  • social rejection and discrimination for adults and children;
  • alteration of the general quality of life
