Overweight And Obesity

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation which will impair health.

Body mass index (BMI) may be a simple index of weight-for-height that's commonly wont to classify overweight and obesity in adults. it's defined as an individual's weight in kilograms divided by the square of his height in meters (kg/m2).

For adults, WHO defines overweight and obesity as follows:

overweight may be a BMI greater than or adequate to 25; and

obesity may be a BMI greater than or adequate to 30.

BMI provides the foremost useful population-level measure of overweight and obesity because it is that the same for both sexes and for all ages of adults. However, it should be considered a rough guide because it's going to not correspond to an equivalent degree of fatness in several individuals.

For children, age must be considered when defining overweight and obesity.
