Obesity

obese

Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of his height in meters (kg/m2). The WHO definitionis: a BMI greater than or equal to 25 is overweight.
Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility. A few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or mental illness. Evidence to support the view that obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is not generally supported.
 On average, obese people have a greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.
Obesity often results from taking in more calories than are burned by exercise and normal daily activities.
Obesity occurs when a person’s body mass index is 25 or greater. The excessive body fat increases the risk of serious health problems.
