What is obesity?
Obesity is having too much body fat. The most common way of gauging obesity is through a measure called Body Mass Index, or BMI, which is a ratio of
body weight to height.
It is not possible to explain detail about BMI here, so please go to my website and under normal body weight category, you can find detail charts and
other information in this regard.
Why we get obese?
We can approach the health problems that stem from unhealthy eating and physical activity simply as individual concerns requiring individual
treatment. Or we also can recognize that there are social influences that affect what we eat, how we live and how healthy we end up — long before we
enter the doctor's office.
There are numerous factors effective that we become obese, some of them mentioned as follow:
– Lifestyle Factors That Lead to Obesity
– Environmental, Genetic and Medical Causes of Obesity.
There a lot of discussions in this regard and you can find them under Causes of Obesity Category in my site.
Why Obesity is a Disease:
The American Medical Association sparked headlines last month when it voted to officially classify obesity as a disease.
The AMA's decision to define obesity as a disease has brought needed attention to a crucial public health issue.
Management of obesity:
The good news is that regardless of the cause of obesity, there are many ways that you can improve your health with diet and exercise. Many of these
improvements may help you to lose weight. Monitoring your calorie intake and increasing activity levels are effective ways for almost anyone to reach
and maintain a healthier weight.
