Obesity, or “obesity” by the public, is one of the biggest and most common health problems of our day. The increase in the amount of fat in the human body at a level that prevents healthy living causes this disease. In general, obesity is introduced when the body mass index is 25 or 30 kg / m2 and above. For this reason, obesity does not have an exact limit and there are limits that can vary depending on the person.
