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. Diet and exercise along with counseling for a lifestyle change made her lose 7% of body weight. Obesity is a public health problem with multiple risk factors, and so its management is complex. This sheds light on a nonpharmacological approach for the management of obesity.
