Obesity is when a person carries so much excess weight that it begins to effect their health negatively. If a person's body weight is 20% higher than it should be, they would be considered obese. Another indicator of obesity is if the person's BMI is between 25 and 29.9.

One in four adult Canadians and one in 10 children live with clinical obesity, meaning six million Canadians living with obesity may require immediate support in managing and controlling their weight.1 Support from health care professionals can help you achieve clinically significant and maintained weight loss.3
