Obesity Treatment Cambridge

Obesity is when a person is carrying too much body fat for their height and gender. A person is considered obese if they have a Body Mass Index (BMI) – weight in kilograms divided by their height in metres squared – of 30 or more. Obesity can happen when you eat more calories than you burn over a period of time.

The rate at which you burn calories from food and drink is known as your metabolic rate. This is often faster during growth spurts and puberty but reaches a fairly steady rate by adulthood.

People who are very active generally have a higher metabolic rate than those who are inactive because they burn off calories faster through energetic activity

Most of us have more food than we need and much of it is higher in calories than the human body was originally designed to cope with. Fast foods, high calorie snacks and large portions all mean it is easy to take in more energy than we need. Obesity has now become one of the most serious medical problems of the Western world.
