Obesity is a body pathology characterized by the storage of adipose tissue. Today it is very easy to define the body mass index by using online BMI calculators. This index is calculated for each person individually to see if he or she has extra weight.Obesity is divided into several groups: 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class obesity. After you have calculated your body mass index, you can determine whether you are within the normal body weight limits or you are overweight. Thus, if your BMI is up to 25, your body weight is normal; if your BMI is 25-30 – you are overweight; if BMI is 30-35 – it’s 1st class obesity; BMI of 35-40 – 2nd class obesity and finally BMI over 40 – 3rd class obesity.
Using your height and weight measurements, you can find out your BMI.
Please note that even if you are overweight, not obese yet, it means that your body suffers from various disorders already. Therefore, doctors recommend to check out your BMI regularly to be able to prevent obesity in time.
People who have a hereditary predisposition to diseases that usually accompany obesity (diabetes type 2, hypertension, cardiovascular disorders, even cancer) should take measures to prevent obesity in the first place. It is a fact that prevention of any disease is much better than its treatment.
To start preventing obesity, people should monitor and check out their body weight and examine the body areas that are prone to obesity comorbidities.
Regular visits to your GP might help to stop the progression of obesity and other health disorders.
- First of all, people who are at risk of obesity, should change their food preferences and eating habits.
Good healthy food choices are required.
Secondly, these people should enhance their physical activity or go in for sports if their health allows. This combination should give a sufficient weight loss, if not – some weight loss drugs should be added to this obesity prevention therapy.
There is a great variety of weight loss drugs these days.
However, Phentermine was a pioneer in this field and still is. As an appetite suppressant, Phentermine helps to reduce food servings and refuse from junk foods easily.
