Studies have shown that being overweight or obese increases the pressure on your lower limbs, ankles and feet, making you more susceptible to experiencing plantar fasciitis, tendinitis, and osteoarthritis.
The WHO recommends the following body mass index (BMI) calculations to determine whether an adult is overweight or obese: a BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 kg per m(2) is defined as overweight; a BMI of 30.0 kg per m(2) or more is defined as obesity.
