What is Weight Loss?

Obesity is having too much body fat. It is a common problem, estimated to affect around one in every four adults and one in every five children in the UK.

A person may be classified as being obese based on their Body Mass Index (BMI), a statistical measurement derived from your height and weight, which is considered a useful estimate for a healthy body weight. Having a BMI of 30-39.9 is considered obese, while a BMI of 40 and above is considered severely obese.

Obesity occurs over time as you accumulate more fat that you burn. There are numerous factors that affect weight gain individually or in combination, such as your genetic make up, lifestyle habits and dietary habits,

Obesity is more than just a cosmetic concern, in the long run it is a leading risk factor for developing serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and some cancers. Even modest weight loss in an obese person can significantly improve health conditions.

Obesity doesn’t usually have associated signs or symptoms. The primary symptom of being obese is having excessive body fat and being extremely heavy weight. However as the condition develops slowly over time, one isn’t necessarily aware when they move from being overweight to obese.

Obesity can also be determined by measuring the waist circumference. Men with a waist circumference of 94cm and over and women with a waist circumference of 80cm or over, indicate the development of obesity.

Obesity is a complex condition of having excess fat in the body, effecting every one in four adults in the UK. There are a number of factors that may contribute to this condition. We recommend everyone suffering from obesity to undergo regular checks in order to diagnose underlying conditions such as an underactive thyroid that may contribute to obesity. In the long run it could lead to more critical conditions such as heart disease, stroke and arthritis.
