Obesity is a widespread and complex health disorder characterised by excessive accumulation of body fat. The body mass index is used as a guide for assessment, although other factors such as muscle mass should also be taken into account.

A BMI of ≥ 30 is generally referred to as obesity. Those affected often suffer from a variety of symptoms, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, joint pain or breathing difficulties. Moreover, it impairs the quality of living by negatively impacting aspects such as sleep and moving.
