What is Obesity? Obesity is a condition where a person has accumulated so much body fat that it might hurt their health. If a person’s bodyweight is at least 20% higher than it should be, he or she is considered obese. If your BMI is 30 or over you are considered obese.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measurement derived from your height and weight. Although it is considered to be a useful way to estimate healthy body weight, it does not measure the percentage of body fat. The BMI measurement can sometimes be misleading – a muscleman may have a high BMI but have much less fat than an unfit person whose BMI is lower.

If we consistently take in more energy than we need, we will gain weight. If we take in too little energy, we will lose weight, fat, and eventually muscle mass.

The type and amount of food we eat determine how many calories we consume. For many people on a weight-loss diet, the number of calories in food is a deciding factor in choosing whether or not to eat it.

How and when we eat can also make a difference, as the body uses energy differently throughout the day. Our body’s energy use will depend on how active we are, how efficiently our body uses the energy and our age.
