Although everybody knows that it is very important to take proper care of health but most people often neglect to take care of their health. It's so hard to use the time that we have to focus on making our bodies healthy and for the most part, it's something that we want to get to as a well shaped body but never have the time for. A person with BMI of 30 may considered obese. Any people who have 10 pounds over weight are considered morbid obese people. After all, our health is usually so sturdy, but this is where people make such a big mistake. The time that they finally address their body's health condition is at a time where they have to. Obesity is one of the most common problems faced by the people today. About 30 million people are obese and one out of three people are living their life with this disorder. Obesity is defined as a body weight consisting of 20% or more above the standard ideal weight. Obesity means having too much fat on the body. This sometimes confused with overweight which means weighing too much fat on the body. Obesity occurs at that time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person and obesity in people also depends on it. Factors that might tip the balance include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods and not being physically active. Risk factors- Being obese mean a person having increased risk of diabetes, heart stroke, arthritis, heart attack and some cancers. An obese person if loss 5-10% of its weight may have lower risk of health problems. The problem is considered a problem only in high income countries and on the other hand, overweight and obesity are now dramatically on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. Being overweight can also affect a person's joints, breathing, sleep, mood, and energy levels. So being overweight or obese can impact a person's entire quality of life. A person, who has obesity, may increases the risk of type 2 diabetes with the degree and duration of obesity. Type 2 diabetes is associated with central obesity and a person who has central obesity has excess fat around his/her waist, so that the body is shaped like an apple.
