Obesity is a chronic disease of high prevalence in all countries of the world. It is one of the main public health problems due to its increase in recent years, since it suggests a high risk of morbidity and mortality due to associated complications and represents a great economic burden for health budgets. Although it can be caused by many factors, the root cause is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. It is an important risk factor for non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), mellitus diabetes type 2 (MD2), arterial hypertension (HBP), dyslipidemia (elevated blood lipids), sleep apnea obstructive (SAO), cancer and locomotor disorders, among others.
