Hyderabad's iconic biryani and high-calorie cuisine maybe amazingly 
addictive, but it's a recipe for doom for majority city women, who gorge 
on the delicacies, but won't move a limb. Binge eating without exercise 
have made Hyderabadi women the most obese in the country. They have 
overtaken their counterparts in other Indian cities on the BMI index. 
These shocking stats came after the National Family Health Survey-4 of 766 
households comprising 830 women, which revealed 47.9% Hyderabadi women 
were obese in the 14-49 age-group.

.

Zainab, a city resident, weighed 165kg on her 24 th birthday before she 
opted for bariatric surgery at city-based hospital in March this year. She 
could hardly move and her mammoth weight and short stature made surgical 
intervention extremely difficult. Now, she weighs 95 kg. Not just Zainab, 
several women like her can't climb stairs, have high blood sugar levels, 
feel ashamed to socialize and are sinking into depression. Also, 
Hyderabadi women have beaten men on the obesity chart. Only 33.7% men 
surveyed in the city were found obese. Those with a body mass index (BMI) 
higher than 25 kgm2 are termed overweight.

Dr P Arokiasamy of Mumbaibased International Institute for Population 
Sciences, which conducted NFHS-4, said lack of balanced nutrition, 
especially in micronutrients also contribute to high obesity in urban 
areas. "Past health surveys showed improper nutrition was not only found 
among urban poor, but even among the well-off,'' he said.
"Part of the blame can be pinned on easy access to junk food and sedentary 
lifestyle. Whether it's ordering tasty , but unhealthy food or getting a 
cab at one's doorstep without the need to walk, more and more women are 
falling victim to obesity," said Dr V Amar, chief consultant, metabolic & 
bariatric surgery, Continental Hospitals.

Pointing out that fe male hormones and birth control pills can raise fat 
deposition in women, Dr Amar said, "Total body fat is controlled by gut 
hormones. Overeating and lack of exercise can influence these hor mones 
and trigger high fat deposition. If there is genetic ten dency, this 
influence is even more."

.

Another trigger for over-eating is psychological. Depression and anxiety, 
affects many housewives, said Sujatha Stephen, chief nutritionist, Maxcure 
Hospitals, Hyderabad.
