Obesity and Nutrition

Obesity is a state  in which abnormal or excessive fat accumulation in adipose tissue impairs health and which may lead to Diabetes. In most cases, it is the outcome  of energy intake exceeding energy outlay  over a period of years. It is defined in adults as a body mass index (BMI) above 30. Within the UK the data from the Health Survey for England 2006 revealed  that 24% of adults (both men and women) were obese and an auxiliary 44% of men and 34% of women were overweight. Around 16% of childr en aged 2 to 15 years were obese and an additional 14% were overweight. For those aged 2 to 10 years, 16.3% boys and 14.4% girls were obese. For those aged 11-15 years, 17.6% of boys and 19.0% of girls were obese.

The diet of an organism is what it eats, which is largely determined by the availability, the processing and palatability of foods. A healthy diet includes preparation of food and storage methods that preserve nutrients from oxidation, heat or leaching, and that reduce risk of foodborne illness.

 

A poor diet can cause deficiency diseases such as blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth and cretinism; health-threatening conditions like obesity and metabolic syndrome and such common chronic systemic diseases as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.  A poor diet can cause the wasting of kwashiorkor in acute cases, and the stunting of marasmus in chronic cases of malnutrition. Bariatric surgery act as an effective tool that provides long term weight-loss and  which also help you to increase quality of health.
