Abstract


Abstract: One hundred adult, non-pregnant women were
examined for various body parameters which determine the
obesity. It was observed that 22% of the subjects under
observation were obese on the whole. Moreover, it was noticed
that the rate of obesity increased among the female subjects with
the advancing age. The main reason for the obesity was found to
be the intake of high calorie diet with lesser physical activities.
