2. Obesity is Defined in Many Ways.
There are numerous sources that define obesity on the human body and these methods include body fat percentage, BMI, and waist-to-hip ratios. Think you are obese or not obese? Simple methods can be used to define if this affects you. First of all, you know if you have gained some fat around your frame if your clothes do not fit well. In addition, using a simple waist to hip ratio can help to define abdominal obesity. Simply measure your circumference of your waist and your hips and compare the two values by dividing them. If your waist circumference is greater than the widest part of your hips then you are abdominally obese.
