Obesity affects three in every ten people worldwide with the condition generally being described as attaining weight above the recommended by about a fifth of the expected. There are many things that contribute to the buildup of excess adipose (which is basically what obesity is) some of which include skipping meals-particularly breakfast- sleep deprivation, and physical inactivity just to name a few.
So why is keeping obesity at bay so important? Well, we’ll let your heart speak for itself. Over the years, scientific evidence has linked the overabundance of fat with an increased strain on the organ as it works overtime to keep up with elevated blood circulation demands. After a while, it eventually proves too big a burden to bear thereby paving the way for failure and other heart health complications.
That said, two important questions still remain? How exactly do you know if you are obese and what can you do to get back on the path to fitness? You can find the answers to those and many more questions in the following infographic on obesity & heart health.
