Obesity is defined as an accumulation of excessive or abnormal fat that can affect health. To determine if an adult suffers from obesity, the body mass index (BMI) is used, which is calculated from weight and height (kg / m2). An adult is considered to be overweight when their BMI is equal to or greater than 25 kg / m2 and obesity when it is equal to or greater than 30 kg / m2. In children, however, reference tables are used according to age and sex to identify excess weight.
