Obesity is an excess of body fat, resulting in adverse health effects. Obesity has emerged as a major public health problem. A rural mother aged 58 years, a widow for the past 29 years, presented to the chest clinic with complaints of breathlessness, snoring, and excessive sleepiness.

This sheds light on a nonpharmacological approach for the management of obesity.
