What Is Obesity?

Obesity is defined as having too much body fat. If you’re obese, you’re more likely to develop health problems, including:

  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Some cancers
  • Stroke

Obesity may also decrease your energy levels, your self-esteem, and your ability to do all of the activities you want to do.

Your body mass index (BMI) is a measurement that helps your doctor determine if you are overweight or obese. The formula is based on height and weight. If you have a BMI of 25 or higher, you are considered overweight. At 30 or higher, you are considered obese, and 40 or higher is characterized as extremely obese.

Being obese or extremely obese puts you at a much higher risk of developing certain health problems. Fortunately, even a modest weight loss can help to prevent or improve health conditions associated with obesity.
