The Facts on Obesity

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health. People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, is over 30 kg/m2, with the range 25–30 kg/m2 defined as overweight. Some East Asian countries use lower values. Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

Obesity is most commonly caused by a combination of excessive food intake, lack of physical activity, and genetic susceptibility. A few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine disorders, medications, or mental illness. Evidence to support the view that obese people eat little yet gain weight due to a slow metabolism is not generally supported. On average, obese people have greater energy expenditure than their thin counterparts due to the energy required to maintain an increased body mass.

Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide, with increasing rates in adults and children. In 2014, 600 million adults (13%) and 42 million children under the age of five were obese. Obesity is more common in women than men. Authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century. Obesity is stigmatized in much of the modern world (particularly in the Western world), though it was seen as a symbol of wealth and fertility at other times in history and still is in some parts of the world. In 2013, the American Medical Association classified obesity as a disease.

Diagnosing Obesity

The diagnosis of obesity is usually based on a physical examination and patient history (i.e., eating and exercise habits).

A measurement called the body mass index (BMI) does not directly measure body fat, but it is a useful tool to assess the health risk associated with being overweight or obese. A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered within the healthy range. The BMI is calculated using kilograms (kg) and metres (m) instead of pounds (lb) and inches/feet. Keep in mind that 1 lb equals 0.45 kg and 1 inch equals 0.0254 m.

BMI is calculated as follows:

BMI = body weight (kg) ÷ height² (m)

Example: if you weigh 150 lbs (68 kg) and are 5'8" (1.73 m) tall, divide 68 by(1.73 × 1.73), or 2.99. The result is 22.74, which is right in the middle of the healthy range.

Health Canada classifies BMI according to the associated risk of developing health problems:

BMI value


Health risk

Less than 18.5



18.5 to 24.9

Normal weight


25.0 to 29.9



30.0 to 34.9

Obese class I


35.0 to 39.9

Obese class II

Very high

40 or higher

Obese class III

Extremely high

*The above classification does not apply to people younger than 18 years of age, pregnant women, or breast-feeding women. For people 65 years and older, the "normal" range is higher, beginning slightly above 18.5 and extending into the "overweight" range.

Doctors may also use other measurements, such as waist size, to evaluate health risks associated with excess abdominal fat. When BMI and waist size indicate a high risk for health problems, additional tests may also be performed.

In Ayurveda, overweight is a sign that the vata, pitta, and kapha systems are out of balance. This can happen irrespective of how much or how little food you eat. Weight control problems happen when your food intake is not balanced by a proper digestion or metabolism.

Overweight or obesity is mostly found in people with predominantly kapha-type constitutions. This dosha is composed of water and earth. When it is imbalanced, the heavy characteristics of these elements become exaggerated.

However, obesity can be found in people with the other two doshas also. For example, people with “pitta dosha” are generally of medium build. But they can suffer from poor digestion if their digestive fire is too low because they have burned themselves out. As a result, food isn’t processed properly, and that, in turn, can result in weight gain or obesity.

For people with “vata dosha” the problem generally is that of underweight rather than overweight. They cannot properly absorb nutrients. However, they can become overweight when imbalanced if they attempt to eat sweet, oily foods in an attempt to calm their “vata” imbalance.

The health risks associated with obesity include:

  • Breathing disorders (e.g., sleep apnea, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
  • Certain types of cancers (e.g., prostate and bowel cancer in men, breast and uterine cancer in women)
  • Coronary artery (heart) disease
  • Diabetes

People who are obese may have the symptoms of the medical conditions mentioned above. The more obese a person is, the more likely they are to have medical problems related to obesity.

 Treating and Preventing Obesity

Changing your lifestyle

  • Obesity is managed and treated to decrease the health risks caused by obesity and to improve quality of life. An appropriate weight management program usually combines physical activity, healthy diet, and change in daily habits. Other programs may also involve psychological counseling and, in some cases, drug therapy. Losing weight and keeping it off is very challenging because lifestyle and behavioral changes are required.
  • What's important is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Fad and crash diets don't work and can be dangerous. The body needs a minimum amount of energy from food to function normally. No daily diet with less than 1000 to 1200 calories should be used without medical supervision.
  • To lose weight successfully, and to maintain a healthy weight, requires lifelong changes in eating and exercise habits as well as an understanding of emotional factors that lead to overeating. It also involves setting and achieving specific and realistic goals. People who are medically obese should consult a doctor or dietitian for a safe and personalized weight-loss program. Behavioral therapy or modification can also help.
  • Regular physical activity is an important part of weight management. In addition to managing weight, exercise also improves overall health and can help reduce the risk of diseases such as certain cancers, heart disease, and osteoporosis. Choose activities and exercises you enjoy.

Medical intervention

  • Medications may be part of a weight management program. Medications aren't "magic cures" leading to permanent weight loss. They're generally used in combination with a proper diet and exercise program. They are only for people who are classified as obese (i.e., those with a BMI over 30), or people with a BMI of 27 and extra heart disease risk factors such as high cholesterol or diabetes.
  • Surgery is only considered when other weight management options have not been successful. There are many forms of obesity surgery, but often surgery reduces the size of the stomach so that only a small amount of food can be eaten comfortably.

Obesity Cure - Through Cow Urine

Cow’s urine is a natural panacea for all diseases:

It is antiseptic, detoxificant, germicidal, anti- microbial, diuretic, blood purifier, appetizer, growth hormone, anti-carcinogenic immunity enhancer, anti fungal, anti-bacterial, compensates the loss of micronutrients (enzymes), anti allergic, antibiotic and antihelmintic (parasite expeller ).

Chemistry and Research

For all intents and purposes, cow urine is exactly what most people think it is - a waste product from cows as a result from consuming food and water on a daily basis. According to various researches, the urine consists of three main parts: urea (the end product of metabolism), uric acid (which has strong antibacterial properties due to the acidity), and numerous nutritional minerals not properly digested by the animal.

After numerous scientific studies well-documented by various researches, researchers propose that diseases ranging from diabetes to gastrointestinal disorders can be treated successfully with minimal to no side effects after consuming a cow urine solution under the supervision of a medical professional. When combined with hormones and additional vitamins found in everyday foods, cow urine can also assist in weight loss.
