Obesity is a complex disease involving an excessive amount of body fat. People who have obesity, compared to those with a normal or healthy weight, are at increased risk for many serious diseases and health conditions, including hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, sleep apnea, many types of cancer, etc. Clinical guidelines for each of these diseases recommend a lifestyle modification by addressing lifestyle behaviors, including diet and physical activity. Weight reduction is well documented to provide health benefits and improve cardiovascular disease risk factors such as blood pressure, LDL-cholesterol, and triglycerides in overweight and obese individuals, and is associated with reduced mortality in obese individuals.
