The condition where the body contains more fat than normal is termed as Obesity. It usually occurs overtime as you eat more calories than you use. The difference between calories in and calories-out varies from person to person. The reasons for this include genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active.
Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you are obese, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases.
