Understanding weight management and obesity in men

Obesity is a disorder that involves an excessive amount of body fat. It is often caused by the intake of more calories than burned with exercise or physical activities. Obesity occurs when the body mass index is 25 or above depending on their height. More than 75% of men in the age group of 40 or above are obese. Research shows that men are three times more likely to be obese.

Health issues caused by obesity:

Some of the risk factors are:
