Unveiling obesity: An extensive study of its roots, consequences, and strategies for management

Author(s):

Dr. Pawan Singh Raghav

Abstract:

Obesity, a condition characterized by excessive body fat accumulation, distinguishes itself from being overweight, primarily indicating an excess of weight. This excess weight may stem not only from fat but also from an increase in muscle mass, bone density, or water retention within the body. Both conditions signify that an individual's weight surpasses what is considered healthy for their height. If an individual's body weight registers at least 25% higher than the accepted normal range, they are categorized as obese. This condition goes beyond mere weight concerns and encompasses various health implications due to excessive fat accumulation within the body.
