Hello Desy, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.


Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.


Based on the complaint you mentioned, your husband is obese. Obesity is a condition of the body that is too fat where there is a buildup of fat in the body that is high and chronic. This obesity can be determined by measuring body mass index (BMI) body weight (kilograms) divided by height squared (meters), or BMI = BB / (TB) 2.


In the case of your husband, according to the calculation of BMI is 38.4 which means that it is categorized as level II obesity. BMI calculation is divided as follows:

BMI <18.5 = Underweight
BMI 18,5-22,9 = Normal
BMI 23,0-24,8 = Excess body weight
BMI 24,9-29,9 = Obesity level I
BMI> 30.0 = Obesity level II

Someone who is obese, is very at risk of causing several health problems. Usually a person becomes obese due to inactivity and rarely exercise, so the body does not burn calories effectively, often applying unhealthy dietary patterns and diets, such as eating high-calorie or fast food but not comparable to calories wasted from activity.


Some symptoms can arise and be experienced by people who are obese such as:

Often feel tired easily
Shortness of breath
Easy and sweaty
Pain and aches in the limbs, especially the legs / knees
When you sleep often snore
Difficult physical activity
Feeling insecure or isolated by the environment.

Right now what your husband can do is:

Go on a food diet, you should consume foods high in fiber and low in calories, especially more consumption of fruits and vegetables. Avoid foods that are high in fat and oily.
Exercise, carried out routinely at least 3-4x / week with an intensity of time for at least 1 hour.
Avoid consumption of cigarettes and alcohol.
Perform routine health checks to detect early health problems that occur due to obesity.
Consult your doctor / nutritionist so that the calculation of calories needed per day can be appropriate.

That's all the answers I can give.


Thank you, good luck always :)
