The strong evidence linking behavior and health outcomes has led to the realization that truly healthy people, and truly healthy societies in these times, are distinguished by both a lack of physiological pathology and a pattern of behaviors that reduces one’s risk of developing the major chronic diseases (Hamburg, Elliott, & Parron, ; Matarazzo, ).Cited by: 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/m 2, with the range kg/m 2 defined as overweight.
A literature review on physical activity revealed that free time physical activity self-reported by 9–year-old children and teenagers is similar in all the ethnic groups, but White, Non-Hispanics report much more participation in organized physical activity than African Americans or Hispanics; this finding may be related to unique barriers.
