Obesity is an accumulation of body fat, resulting in adverse health effects. The prevalence of overweight and obesity among population aged 30 years and above was 42 percent and 12 percent globally, respectively. This study presents the progressive onset of obesity in an adult male and examines the different risk factors as well as NYI for morbid obesity. A 24-year-old self-employed catering employee underwent Naturopathic and Yogic interventions (NYI) for a period of 30 days. He was assessed for anthropometric measurements, haematological assessments and perceived stress scale. Statistical tests using Excel were done with the Data Analysis ToolPak. In our case, we observed that the weight loss progressed as we increased the duration of the NYI.
