The simple measure for obesity is by using the body mass index (BMI). It can be classified into three groups. Class I obesity is having a BMI of 30-34.9, Class II obesity, your BMI is 35-39.9 and if you have a BMI of 40 and higher, you belong to the class III obesity which is morbid obesity. It is called morbid obesity because it kills sooner rather than later.  If not corrected soon class I leads to class II which leads to class III and then........  The class doesn't really matter. All obesity is a killer.

There are two types of obesity Type I, caused by lifestyle choices and Type II caused by medical conditions such as hormonal imbalances like hypothyroidism and or some medications.  Type II accounts for only about 1% of obesity. Type I is cause by bad lifestyle choices and habits. The consumption of refined and processed foods, causing nutrient bankruptcy in your body and the lack of adequate physical activity to burn calories and build health.  Refined and processed foods are rich in fats, sugars, Trans fats, and preservatives. They are also poor providers of nutrition. The lack of nutrients combined with the excess sugar and fats and lack of exercise lead to obesity and poor health. Type 1 obesity comprises the major percentage of obese people.
