Obesity is one of the major diseases on the rise in the world today. People are being diagnosed with it every day. What is obesity, you may ask. Well, it is a condition where a person has lots of fat in their body thus making them extremely overweight. It is mainly measured using the BMI (Body Mass Index), which involves dividing your weight (kilograms) with your height (meters squared). In the case that the result is above 29, you are considered as obese.

They are many ways to reduce obesity. For example, leading a healthy lifestyle and exercising regularly. If you are already obese, there are things you can do to reduce this condition. They include:

10. Take Some Honey

5. Stick To 3 Meals A Day

Ways to Reduce Obesity
Skipping meals will in no way help you reduce weight. Actually, according to research, those people who tend to skip meals, especially breakfast, have a tendency of adding weight. This is because, if you skip a meal, you tend to eat more calories when you eat the next meal. You will also feel hungrier during the day as compared to people who do not skip meals.

4. Homemade Food is the Best
