Workloads increase women's incidence of "obesity"... What is the reason?
Researchers conducted a study at the University of Gothenburg on more than 3,800 people, and it became clear from the study that women who suffer from workloads are more likely to gain weight within 10 years of starting their work.
Scientists confirm that obesity increases in women due to their feeling of fatigue in addition to their exposure to pressure at work, which leads them to feel frustrated and thus eat more foods.
They also explained that fatigue leads to an increase in the release of the hormone cortisol, which helps in the formation of fat around the diaphragm, and weight gain, and women are usually more affected than men, because they often bear workloads in addition to the burdens of household tasks.
The researcher supervising the study, Sophia Kleinberg, revealed: "When women bear major responsibilities in addition to the workload, they resort to rest and relaxation and eat more meals that lead to weight gain."
Clinferg confirmed that women's constant preoccupation with work may push them to neglect exercise, and this also contributes to gaining more weight, which increases the rates of obesity among women.
