Most people in the US are obese. People you wouldn't think look obese are probably obese by the literal deffinition of the word.

sometimes obesity is not only in the physical appearance sometimes people are obese even though they do not look like obese

I heard on the radio the other day that it is determined by the amount of body fat a person has. For example, they said a five foot four woman would be considered obese at around 175 pounds. Between 140 and that they are overweight.
