Overweight and obesity are considered as major public health issues. The health risks associated with overweight and obesity are serious: hypertension, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer, and others. The most common indicator for assessing body weight is the body mass index (BMI), a simple weight-to-height ratio used to estimate overweight and obesity in adults.
