obesity

a state of being very overweight; in general, a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30. BMI is figured out based on height and weight, but is not an absolute measure for overweight or obesity. Because it cannot tell the difference between fat and muscle, other tests must be done to know whether a person with a high BMI is actually obese.
