Obesity and overweight
Obesity and overweight are an abnormal and excessive accumulation of fat that can be detrimental to health. The WHO has recognized obesity as a chronic disease since 1997. It is defined as an “incurable but controllable disease”.
In practice, a person is considered obese when the BMI exceeds 30, and overweight when the BMI is greater than 25. It is a true epidemic, when more than four million people die each year from causes related to overweight or obesity (2017).
The prevalence of obesity and overweight continues to increase, and from 1975 to 2016, the prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adolescents quadrupled worldwide, from 4% to 18%.
Obesity in Spain according to the European Health Survey 2020, we have 16.5% of men and 15.5% of women over the age of 18. And 44.9% of men and 30.6% of women are overweight. Spain has the 3rd highest prevalence of overweight in Europe and the 4th highest prevalence of obesity.
Obesity is often associated with other diseases, especially type 2 diabetes, and we must treat both diseases together.
At Clínica ProActitud we are pioneers in the ketogenic diet and have been successfully treating obese and overweight patients since 2008.
The ketogenic diet (VLCKD) is endorsed by the European Guidelines for the management of obesity in adults in the official journal of the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO).
That is why Dr. Losa is a member of the Certified Doctor group of the Pronokal Academy Board where he is constantly updated on new lines of research and development of the ketogenic diet, forming part of research working groups, teaching and attending training meetings in this field.
The experience of the ProActitud Clinic’s professionals in therapeutic physical exercise complements the treatment of obesity to achieve fat weight loss, changes in body composition, acquisition of a new healthy lifestyle, and ultimately, success in the long-term maintenance of a healthy weight.
