Obesity: Causes Consequences and Effective Management

Obesity is defined as having an excessive amount of body fat relative to lean body mass. It is typically measured using the Body Mass Index (BMI), which considers a person’s height and weight. An individual with a BMI of 30 or higher is classified as obese. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized obesity as a global epidemic, and its prevalence has more than doubled since 1980.
