Obesity is an important risk factor in heart disease. Obesity is defined by the body mass index. And the body mass index can be calculated very easily. Firstly, find out your body weight in kgs and then divide it by your height in square meters. Now, if your BMI exceeds 24.9 then it means that you are overweight. When BMI is more than 25, its time for you to look after it and try to control the body weight.This can easily be achieved by changing your lifestyle by avoiding high caloric diet and exercising daily. In addition, obesity is also related to the metabolic syndrome and tends to increase the incidences of diabetes in people who are obese.
