Overweight and obesity are global public health problem because of their effect on individuals, families and communities. It is estimated that about one billion people are overweight and more than 300 million obese worldwide (WHO, 2012). The fundamental cause of obesity and overweight is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. Globally, there has been an increased intake of energy dense foods that are high in fat and an increase in physical inability due to the increasingly sedentary nature of many forms of work, changing modes of transportation and increasing urbanization (WHO, 2013).
