Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that could compromise health. The determinant of obesity and overweight is the imbalance between the calories consumed and those expended. In particular, it is generally accepted that an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat and an increase in physical inactivity are important contributors, although the etiology of obesity also involves genetic, hormonal, social and environmental components. According to the World Health Organization, since 1975 the number of people suffering of obesity has almost tripled (WHO, 2018).

Abstract

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that could compromise health. The determinant of obesity and overweight is the imbalance between the calories consumed and those expended. In particular, it is generally accepted that an increased intake of energy-dense foods that are high in fat and an increase in physical inactivity are important contributors, although the etiology of obesity also involves genetic, hormonal, social and environmental components. According to the World Health Organization, since 1975 the number of people suffering of obesity has almost tripled (WHO, 2018).
