Weight Control

Introduction


Body Mass Index (BMI) is an accurate representation of body’s fat content as it takes height into account. BMI of 25 of more is considered overweight and BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. According to recent estimates, about 33.3% of US adults are overweight (BMI ≥ 25.0) and 35.9% are obese (BMI ≥ 30.0). That means only about 30.8% of US adults have normal body weight.

Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death. In 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.
