World Obesity Day 2023 – Obesity Empowerment Network

What is obesity?
Describes a person who has excess body fat. In the UK it’s estimated that around 1 in every 4 adults and around 1 in every 5 children aged 10 to 11 are living with obesity.

What is the main cause of obesity?
It’s caused when extra calories are stored in the body as fat. If you consume high amounts of energy, particularly found in high fat and high sugar foods, and do not use all of the energy through physical activity, much of the extra energy will be stored in the body as fat.
