Many sorts of health problems can occur if one is overweight. 

 

Overweight is typically defined as having a body mass index (BMI) > 25 kg/m2 for men and women. (Note that an overweight person does not necessarily have too much fat nor increased health risk if the excess weight is due to an above-average amount of muscle.)

 

If you are concerned that you or a loved one may be overweight, start by seeing a health professional such as:
