-prone to neurosis and unscrupulous people at risk for life repeatedly pass through a set cycle and weight loss, according to US researchers.

study published by the American Psychological Association and is based on information collected over 50 years, has revealed the psychological risk factors that can lead to obesity.It was found that impulsivity is the most important factor in predicting the emergence of excess weight in humans.

Study participants with the highest levels of impulsivity weighed an average of ten kilograms more than impulsive people unwilling to.

People with this personality trait, often succumb to temptation and often can not control their behavior in difficult situations.To maintain a healthy weight need to constantly healthy diet and physical activity, it requires human consistency, discipline and the ability to comply with the restrictions.However, overly impulsive people such self is extremely difficult.


research scientists from the National Institute on Aging (USA

) analyzed data from an extended study in which 1988 people participated.Its purpose was to identify overweight depending on the specific character traits and personality traits.Results of the study were published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
