"Bye bye, extra kilo's!
Welcome to your best version!"

Overweight is understood as an increase in body weight above a certain pattern considered healthy according to factors such as sex, age or height. Excess weight is an increasingly worrying problem in our society, as it has increased alarmingly in recent years, so that today it affects more than half of the population. Overweight and obesity are a clear risk factor in the onset of various diseases, and can even lead to death from respiratory or cardiac problems. The World Health Organization itself has declared obesity the epidemic of the 21st century.

Difference between overweight and obesity

Overweight and obesity are closely related concepts, since they refer to an excess of body fat. The main difference between overweight and obesity is that the person suffering from the latter suffers from a higher proportion of fat than the overweight person.

Another difference between obesity and overweight is that the former is an important risk factor in pathologies such as arteriosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, bone problems, heart disease, respiratory problems, liver and kidney problems, sleep problems and many others. In addition, the risks of surgical interventions or the use of anesthesia are multiplied with respect to the population with normal weight. For all these reasons, obesity in itself is already considered a disease or disorder. Being overweight increases the risk of suffering these pathologies, but not to such a high degree, so it is considered a condition of the subject, not a disease.

Factors that cause overweight

It is clear that a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle are the main causes of overweight. In addition, there are also genetic factors that can predispose to weight gain. In addition, metabolic diseases and the consumption of certain medications can also cause this problem. Genetic and metabolic factors are usually more strongly involved in obesity. To prevent overweight and obesity, it is also important to avoid stress and get enough sleep.

How to know if you are overweight

One of the most common ways to detect whether you are overweight or obese is to calculate the Body Mass Index (BMI). This parameter is used to count the level of body fat, calculating the ratio between weight and height. You can calculate yours by dividing your weight in kilos by your height in meters squared. A person with a BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight, while a BMI over 30 is considered obese.

A healthy diet and an active lifestyle are essential to avoid or solve obesity and overweight.
