What is Obesity?

Obesity is a medical condition that occurs when excess body fat has accumulated to the point that it may have a negative effect on health. Adults are considered overweight when their Body Mass index (BMI) is more than 25 and less than 30. They are considered obese when their BMI is 30 or greater. Your doctor can help you determine your BMI.
