Obesity and Overweight

Obesity and overweight: Overweight and obesity are defined as ‘abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health’. Medislim is a fat burning nutrition supplement which helps in fat loss and quick weight loss it has natural fat burners.

Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used in classifying overweight and obesity in adult populations and individuals. It is defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters (kg/m2). BMI provides the most useful population-level measure of overweight and obesity as it is the same for both sexes and for all ages of adults. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines "overweight" as a BMI equal to or more than 25, and "obesity" as a BMI equal to or more than 30.

  1. Less than 18.4 - Underweight
  2. 18.5-22.9 – Normal
  3. 23-24.9 - Overweight
  4. More then 25 – Obese

 

What causes obesity and overweight?

The fundamental cause of obesity and overweight is an energy imbalance between calories consumed on one hand, and calories expended on the other hand.

  1. When food intake is less than physical activity = weight gain.
  2. When energy expenditure (Physical activity or exercise) is greater than intake = Weight loss
  3. When energy intake equals energy expenditure = Balance or weight Management/maintenance

Global increases in overweight and obesity are attributable to a number of factors including: •

  1. A global shift in high fat diet i.e., towards increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat and sugars but low in vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients; and
  2. A trend towards decreased physical activity due to the increasingly sedentary nature of many forms of work, changing modes of transportation, and increasing urbanization.

 

What are common health consequences of overweight and obesity?

Overweight and obesity lead to serious health consequences.

  1. Cardiovascular disease (mainly heart disease and stroke)
  2. Diabetes
  3. Musculoskeletal disorders – especially osteoarthritis.
  4. Some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon).

Obesity and Bone: Relationship between Overweight/Obesity and Osteoarthritis(OA):

Obesity and Bone: Relationship between Overweight/Obesity and Osteoarthritis(OA):

  1. Being overweight is a risk factor for development and progression of OA in the knee and hip, and possibly development of OA in the hand.
  2. Weight loss is recommended for overweight persons with OA.
  3. Even being slightly overweight may increase risk for developing knee OA.
Obesity and infertility

Obesity and infertility: Fertility can be negatively affected by obesity. In women, early onset of obesity favours the development of menses irregularities, chronic oligo-anovulation and infertility in the adult age. Obesity in women can also increase risk of miscarriages and impair the outcomes of assisted reproductive technologies and pregnancy, when the body mass index exceeds 30 kg/m. The main factors implicated in the association may be insulin excess and insulin resistance. These adverse effects of obesity are specifically evident in polycystic ovary syndrome. In men, obesity is associated with low testosterone levels. In massively obese individuals, reduced spermatogenesis associated with severe hypotestosteronemia may favour infertility. Moreover, the frequency of erectile dysfunction increases with increasing body mass index.

Obesity and CVD

Obesity and CVD: Obesity may affect the heart through its influence on known risk factors such as Dyslipidemia(high cholesterol), hypertension, glucose intolerance, inflammatory markers, obstructive sleep apnea/hypoventilation, and the prothrombotic state, in addition to as-yet-unrecognized mechanisms. On the whole, overweight and obesity predispose to or are associated with numerous cardiac complications such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, and sudden death because of their impact on the cardiovascular system.

Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity and Diabetes: Studies suggest that abdominal fat causes fat cells to releases ‘pro-inflammatory’ chemicals, which can make the body less sensitive to the insulin it produces by disrupting the function of insulin responsive cells and their ability to respond to insulin. This known as insulin resistance - a major trigger for type 2 diabetes. Having excess abdominal fat (i.e. a large waistline) is known as central or abdominal obesity, a particularly high-risk form of obesity.

Obesity and GERD

Obesity and GERD: Obesity-related changes in gastroesophageal anatomy and physiology (such as an increased prevalence of esophageal motor disorders, a diminished lower esophageal sphincter pressure, development of hiatal hernia, and increased intragastric pressure) might contribute to an explanation for this association. The association between obesity and GERD might also be mediated by increased estrogen exposure in individuals who are obese.

How can the burden of overweight and obesity be reduced?

Overweight and obesity, as well as their related chronic diseases, are largely preventable.

At the individual level, people can:

Global increases in overweight and obesity are attributable to a number of factors including:

  1. achieve energy balance and a healthy weight loss
  2. limit energy intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from saturated fats to unsaturated fats i.e., Low cholesterol diet
  3. increase consumption of weight loss foods i.e., fruit and vegetables, as well as legumes, whole grains and nuts;
  4. limit the intake of sugars; and
  5. Increase physical activity - at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate-intensity activity on most days. More activity may be required for quick weight loss.
