As per WHO (World Health Organization) overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. A crude population measure of obesity is the body mass index (BMI), a person’s weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of his or her height (in metres). A person with a BMI of 30 or more is generally considered obese. A person with a BMI equal to or more than 25 is considered overweight.
Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer.
The balance between calorie intake and energy out flow determines a person's weight. If a person eats more calories than he / she burns (metabolizes), that person gains weight, the body will store the excess calories as fat. If a person eats few calories than he / she metabolizes, he / she will lose weight. Therefore the most common causes of obesity are overeating and physical inactivity.
