About Obesity

 

Obesity results from the excessive accumulation of fat that exceeds the body's skeletal and physical standards for age, sex and height. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), and increase of 20% or more above your ideal body weight is the point at which excess weight becomes a health risk.
Obesity becomes "morbid" when it reaches the point of significantly increasing the risk of one or more obesity- related health conditions (also known as co-morbidities).

Researches over the last several years have shown that Indian bodies and genetics are different from their western counterparts. Indians suffer from abdominal obesity compared to people in the west whose bodies are uniformly obese. This is the first time India has officially compiled its weight and flab statistics to step up the fight against obesity and its direct fallout diabetes.
