Welcome to the obesity service at Addenbrooke's

Obesity is the medical term for having too much fat stored in your body for good health.

When people gain weight through a ‘positive energy balance’, that is more energy (food and drink) coming into the body than is being spent through activity and exercise, the surplus energy is stored mainly in fat cells that are present throughout the body. Nothing has to ‘go wrong’ for this process to happen.
