Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that present a risk to health. These are measured by Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is defined as the individual’s body mass divided by the square of his or her height. As per standards laid down for India, people more than BMI are considered overweight, people more than BMI are considered obese. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person’s weight is greater than what’s considered healthy for his or her height.
Obesity occurs over a period of time when a person eats more calories than s/he uses. The balance between calories-in and calories-burnt out differs for each person. Factors that might tip the balance include genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods and not being physically active. When there is increase in body weight by more than 20 percent, the condition is termed as obesity. Obesity occurs due to imbalance of the food intake and the energy spent. It becomes risk factor for many other serious diseases like high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, arteriosclerosis (thickening and hardening of walls of arteries), gout (disease in which defective metabolism of uric acid causes arthritis), gallstones, diabetes mellitus, respiratory diseases etc. Person with conditions like psychological disorders, mobility restrictions and pregnancy tend to gain weight. Once if obesity is established it is maintained even by the small intake of food. Obesity is proportional to the decrease in life expectancy.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories your body burns at rest to maintain normal body functions.
Formula for men
BMR = 655 + (13.7 x weight in kilos) + (5 x height in cms) – (6.8 x age in years)
Formula for Women
BMR = 66 + (9.6 x weight in kilos) + (1.8 x height in cms) – (4.7 x age in years)
The good news is that overweight and obesity are largely preventable and reversible. The key to success is to achieve an energy balance between calories consumed on one hand, and calories used on the other hand. To reach this goal, people can limit energy intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from saturated fats, trans-fats to limited quantity of unsaturated fats; increase consumption of fruit and vegetables, as well as legumes, whole grains and nuts; and limit their intake of sugars. And to increase calories used, people can boost their levels of physical activity to at least 30 minutes of regular, moderate intensity activity on most days. Medicines made out of herbs like Phytolacca berry,Garcinia Cambogia etc helps to combat overweight and obesity.

The diet should contain plenty of green vegetables and fruits, since they contain few calories, while their bulk helps to fill the stomach and provide satiety. They also help to minimize the constipation common with a low food intake. Vitamin and mineral contents are maintained.
Alcoholic drinks are also a source of calories without essential nutrients and tend to stimulate appetite. Sweets and snacks which are taken in between the meals are potential source of higher calories. As far as possible, these should be avoided or limited.
It has been observed that eating habits are also related to tendency to gain weight. A person eating fast consumes higher quantities of food material and may gain weight faster than a person eating slowly. However, if hunger pattern and fat metabolism are controlled along with low calorie diet and a moderate exercise good results of weight reduction are obtained.
