Do you know that ‘zero size’ figure is a completely new phenomenon or trend that we are witnessing in the 21st century?
With the rise of social networking platforms, now every person gets the opportunity to share their pictures online for viewers to see. This has also made people more conscious about their figure or physique.
However, millions of people around the world suffer from obesity problem, which makes them look fat and unhealthy. Today, we will try to understand the basics of obesity, which may help us to fight it effectively.
What Is Obesity?
Many people often get offended when their doctors call them ‘obese’. They need to understand that obesity is just a medical term used to describe your physical weight.
Obesity directly means having excess fat, so obese means a person with too much fat in his/her body. Generally, this is based on BMI (Body Mass Index), which can be calculated by using a BMI calculator. In this type of calculation, your weight and height are taken into account to find the results.
For example, if a person has his/her BMI from 25 to 29.9, then he/she is overweight, but won’t be considered as obese. However, if someone has a BMI that’s more 30, then he/she will be seen as an obese person.
How Your Health Is Affected By Obesity
You’ll be surprised to know that obesity might be the reason behind some of your health conditions, such as,
• High cholesterol
• Type 2 diabetes
