Assalamualaikum wtb.

Seperti kita mengetahui Malaysia merupakan antara negara yang mempunyai peratus obesiti yang tertinggi.

Apakah yang dimaksudkan dengan OBESITI?

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is not the same as being overweight, which means weighing too much. A person may be overweight from extra muscle, bone, or water, as well as from having too much fat.


Taking in more calories than you burn can lead to obesity because the body stores unused calories as fat. Obesity can be caused by:
*Eating more food than your body can use
*Drinking too much alcohol
*Not getting enough exercise

Other factors that affect weight include:
The way we eat when we are children can affect the way we eat as adults. The way we eat over many years becomes a habit. It affects what we eat, when we eat, and how much we eat.
We are surrounded by things that make it easy to overeat and hard to stay active:
*Many people do not have time to plan and make healthy meals.
*More people today work desk jobs compared to more active jobs in the past.
*People with less free time have less time to exercise.

Sometimes, medical problems or treatments cause weight gain, including:
*Underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism)
*Medicines such as birth control pills, antidepressants, and antipsychotics

Other things that can cause weight gain are:
*Quitting smoking. Most people who quit smoking gain 4 - 10 pounds in the first 6 months after quitting. Some people gain as much as 25 - 30 pounds.
*Stress, anxiety, feeling sad, or not sleeping well
For women:
*Menopause -- women may gain 12-15 pounds during menopause
*Not losing the weight they gained during pregnancy

How to  to measure health risks from your weight?

*Body Mass Index (BMI)


*Waist circumference (your waist measurement in inches)

Calculating body frame size

Body frame size is determined by a person's wrist circumference in relation to his height. For example, a man whose height is over 5' 5" and wrist is 6" would fall into the small-boned category.
Determining frame size: To determine the body frame size, measure the wrist with a tape measure and use the following chart to determine whether the person is small, medium, or large boned.
  • Height under 5'2"
    • Small = wrist size less than 5.5"
    • Medium = wrist size 5.5" to 5.75"
    • Large = wrist size over 5.75"
  • Height 5'2" to 5' 5"
    • Small = wrist size less than 6"
    • Medium = wrist size 6" to 6.25"
    • Large = wrist size over 6.25"
  • Height over 5' 5"
    • Small = wrist size less than 6.25"
    • Medium = wrist size 6.25" to 6.5"
    • Large = wrist size over 6.5"
  • Height over 5' 5"
    • Small = wrist size 5.5" to 6.5"
    • Medium = wrist size 6.5" to 7.5"
    • Large = wrist size over 7.5"
