Overweight & Obesity

The terms “overweight” and “obese” are medical phrases characterized by excess body fat accumulation that can have adverse effects on health. These conditions are associated with an increased risk of various health problems, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, certain cancers, and musculoskeletal issues. Being overweight or obese often result from a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, including poor dietary choices and insufficient physical activity. Managing and preventing these conditions typically involve adopting a healthier lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, to achieve and maintain a healthier body weight and improve overall well-being.
