Please note: The term obesity is used throughout this article. This term was originally used as a research term. Unfortunately, it is now being used in the clinical setting and within the public domain. And almost always when it is used in this way, it is an unhelpful and judgemental term. So please excuse the use of the word obesity throughout this article, as the language is still very entrenched within the research world.
