Obesity is a condition that occurs when a person has excess body fat, which might affect their health. Obesity is usually diagnosed based on a person’s body mass index (BMI). BMI is calculated by dividing the weight in kilograms by the square of the height in meters. People with BMI of more than 30 are called obese. Sedentary lifestyle, high-fat diet, medications (antidepressants, antipsychotics, steroids), family history, lack of sleep, and pregnancy are some of the risk factors of obesity. Obese people are at risk of developing many health conditions like hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, stroke, cancer, gallstones, infertility, irregular periods, erectile dysfunction, and osteoarthritis. Regular exercise, cutting down on calories, eating healthy food, and weight loss surgery can help obese people lose weight.
