What is Obesity?

A person’s body weight is determined by the sum of energy intake and energy expenditure. An imbalance between total energy intake and expenditure will results in body weight changes. One of the outcomes of this imbalance is obesity, a major global health problem, with 500 million obese individuals worldwide.

Many studies have highlighted the role of genetic factors in obesity. Usually, these genes code for proteins involved in the regulation of satiety and food intake. Some of the other factors contribute to the obesity in children includes the deficiency in the leptin hormone which causes an early-onset extreme obesity.

How can obesity affect you?

Obesity is a significant health concern as it predisposes individuals to several comorbidities, including hypertension, dyslipidaemia, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer and osteoarthritis and a shortened life expectancy while impairing the quality of life. Therefore, managing an ideal body weight is an important part of staying healthy.

Symptoms to watch out for

Risk Factors Can Influence The Risk of Developing Obesity

Genetics are NOT the only risk factor for Obesity.
Obesity is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Now that you have learnt about your genetic risk, you can determine how aggressively you need to make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.
The earlier in your life that you commit to living a healthy lifestyle, the more you can reduce your risk for or delay the development of Obesity.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Consume low-carbohydrates diet to enhance weight loss
  2. Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products to achieve and maintain weight
  3. Choose lean meats, poultry, fish, lentils, and beans for protein
  4. Drink lots of water and limit sugar-sweetened beverages
  5. Limit consumption of sugar and saturated fat
  6. Yogurt consumption is found to be associated with lower body mass index, lower body weight and smaller waist circumference. Consume yogurt to prevent weight gain and obesity
  7. Eggs are high in protein and healthy fats. Consume eggs combined with an energy-deficit diet during breakfast enhances weight loss.

Lifestyle Recommendations:

  1. Increase daily physical activity to reduce obesity and prevent weight gain.
