Taking off weight when overweight, or putting more on when underweight is often easier said than done. Being underweight can stem from medical issues, worry and problems with self image and self esteem. A distorted perception can stimulate behaviour that negates the ability to put on weight. Overweight people who are unhappy or who experience high levels of stress also find it hard to take off weight. Bad habits, eating comfort foods due to lack of personal fulfilment, or to alleviate feelings of being stressed, often lead to difficulties in maintaining a healthy weight. The reason why people have weight problems is varied. How a person feels about themselves and their life is an important contributing factor.
