Long hours at a desk, hours spent watching TV and unhealthy quick fix eating habits all come together to cause unhealthy weight gain. Going to a gym regularly can help to combat this to some extent, but finding the time for the gym, having the inclination to work out and the willingness to pay the often exorbitant fees that gyms charge are major obstacles.
