Obesity is a public health problem that has become epidemic worldwide. Substantial literature has emerged to show that overweight and obesity are major causes of co-morbidities, including type II diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, sleep apnea, cardiovascular diseases, various cancers and other health problems, which can lead to reduced quality of life, premature death, further morbidity and mortality. The related health care costs are also substantial. Therefore, a public health approach to develop population-based strategies for the prevention of excess weight gain is of great importance.
To prevent obesity and maintain a healthy body weight, eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly.
