Nowadays, obesity and overweight are one of the biggest problems of everyone around the world.
WHAT ARE OBESITY AND OVERWEIGHT?
Overweight and obesity are characterized as a strange or exorbitant fat gathering that may debilitate wellbeing.
Weight file (BMI) is a basic list of weight-for-tallness that is generally used to order overweight and corpulence in grown-ups. It is characterized as an individual's load in kilograms isolated by the square of his stature in meters (kg/m2).
"FACTS ABOUT OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY"
Some recent WHO global estimates follow.
In 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults aged 18 years and older were overweight. Of these over 650 million adults were obese.
In 2016, 39% of adults aged 18 years and over (39% of men and 40% of women) were overweight.
Overall, about 13% of the world’s adult population (11% of men and 15% of women) were obese in 2016.
The worldwide prevalence of obesity nearly tripled between 1975 and 2016.
How can overweight and obesity be reduced?
Overweight and obesity, as well as their related noncommunicable diseases, are largely preventable. Supportive environments and communities are fundamental in shaping people’s choices, by making the choice of healthier foods and regular physical activity the easiest choice (the choice that is the most accessible, available, and affordable), and therefore preventing overweight and obesity.
At the individual level, people can:
1. limit energy intake from total fats and sugars;
2.increase consumption of fruit and vegetables, as well as legumes, whole grains and nuts; and
3.engage in regular physical activity (60 minutes a day for children and 150 minutes spread throughout the week for adults).
