What is Obesity?

Obesity is a medical condition when a person carries excess body fat that might affect their health adversely. In medical terms, a person with a high body mass index (BMI) is known as an obese person. Body mass index is a tool to calculate the ideal weight for a person with inputs of height and weight. Though BMI is used vastly to find out whether a person has an ideal weight or not it has some limitations, so it would be much better if you visit a doctor for a proper checkup.
Obesity increases the risk of many other health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, cancer, slip disc, back pain, etc. Obesity can disturb the routine lifestyle of a person if not treated on time and a person may need surgery in some cases. The best news is that by practicing asanas for obesity or by maintaining a healthy weight a person can keep all the harmful effects of obesity at a distance.
Therapeutic yoga treatment along with some lifestyle changes helps in losing excessive body weight with the help of some simple weight loss asanas.
