General information

Obesity is a complex problem in which several factors play an important part: predisposition, morphology, diet and lifestyle. A person’s weight depends on the balance between calorie intake (nutrition) and energy consumption (metabolism, exercise). It’s this energy balance that makes maintaining your weight challenging.


Research shows that obesity decreases life expectancy. Being overweight induces elevated blood pressure and an elevated cholesterol level and causes most cardiovascular diseases. Furthermore, an overweight person has a higher risk of developing:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Elevated cholesterol and fat levels in the blood
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart conditions
  • Lung conditions, sleep apnea
  • Cancer
  • Congestion of the back, vertebrae and joints
  • Skin conditions
  • Hepatic steatosis
  • Depression
  • Acid reflux
