The term obese describes a person who’s very overweight, with a lot of body fat.
It’s a common problem in the UK that’s estimated to affect around 1 in every 4 adults.
Risks of obesity
It’s very important to take steps to tackle obesity because, as well as causing obvious physical changes, it can lead to a number of serious and potentially life-threatening conditions.
- type 2 diabetes
- coronary heart disease
- some types of cancer
Obesity can also affect your quality of life and lead to psychological problems, such as depression and low self-esteem.
The best way to treat obesity is to eat a healthy reduced-calorie diet and exercise regularly.
