Obesity And Weight Management
Obesity is a chronic (long-term) medical problem of too much body fat. Health care providers use a number called the Body Mass Index(BMI) to diagnose obesity. Your BMI is calculated from your current weight and height. The higher their BMI, the more body fat they have for most people. Some bodybuilders and athletes have high BMIs, but they have more muscle mass than average and are not considered to be obese.
