Globally, more than 1 in every 10 adults is obese (WHO, 2012). Originally overweight and obesity were considered to be problems of high-income countries; now, these conditions are on the rise in the low- and middle-income countries (WHO, 2012). Childhood obesity (≥95th percentile for sex and age) is also a global problem. Overweight adolescents have a 70% chance of becoming overweight adults; this increases to 80% if one or both parents are overweight or obese (AHA, 2012). The World Health Organization (2012) reported that nearly 35 million children living in developing countries are overweight (85th percentile ≤ BMI < 95th percentile for age and gender). In developed countries, approximately 8 million children are overweight. Age, gender, family history, cholesterol intake, and physical inactivity are the major factors associated with increased risk of obesity.
