Obesity

Overweight refers to having more fat than is healthy for the individual. Usually a body mass index (ratio of weight and square of height) more than 30 kg per square meter is labelled as overweight. Excessive eating, junk foods, alcoholism, an underactive thyroid gland, sedentary lifestyle and having overweight family members are some of the causes. A proper diet, exercise and treatment of any underlying disorder are the appropriate modes of losing weight.
