A fat priest might be considered “fat” by many, but the difference is actually quite simple, according to a new report.
The report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Obesity Federation (WOFF) reveals that “fat priests” are men who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher.
“Fat priests” can be considered as people with a BMI of 30+ for a whole range of reasons, from being overweight to being clinically obese, and may be seen as “disorderly” or “mentally ill.”
However, it’s important to note that these are not necessarily doctors or health professionals, WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan said.
“The WHO and the WHOF are the two organizations that have been doing the research on fat priests, and we are the ones who have published this paper, but there are a lot of different interpretations of it,” she said.
Chan explained that a “fat priest” is a man who has a BMI over 30, which is “at least twice as high as the average BMI of the population in the general population.”
“In the case of a BMI between 30 and 40, it can be the case that a person has had a significant reduction in body fat,” she told Business Insider.
Chan also said that there’s nothing inherently wrong with being overweight, but she said that overweight people tend to be seen more in the public eye, which may lead to people misdiagnosing obesity as “mental illness.”
This can also lead to a lack of understanding about the conditions that lead to obesity, as well as a lack, as the WHO and WOFF report, of proper treatment.
WHO/WOFFF “The most important thing for people to understand is that the BMI of someone is not a reflection of their health, and if you’re overweight and you have symptoms that are consistent with being mentally ill, you should see a doctor,” Chan said, adding that obesity can also have physical consequences, including lower immune systems and a lower likelihood of surviving cancer.
While it’s unclear exactly how many fat priests there are, Chan said that she believes it’s in the tens of thousands.
“There is some concern that there are probably thousands of fat priests in the world,” she explained.
“But it’s really hard to say.
You can’t know that.
You’ve got to be patient with people, and it’s also important that people know what they’re talking about.”

How do people get fat?
“It is very difficult to quantify exactly how fat people are, because they are not a single identifiable group, and therefore they’re not identifiable,” Chan told Business Insiders.
However, a BMI can be determined by taking a measurement of your waist, hips, or chest.
This measurement is known as a waist-to-hip ratio (WHR).
A WHR of less than 22.5% is considered overweight, which indicates that someone is underweight.
A WHRs of more than 22% is borderline overweight, and indicates that you’re obese.
BMI is the sum of your weight (in kilograms) and height (in meters).
The WHO and WHOF report that the average WHO/ WHOF member has a WHR between 25 and 29.2%, and that people with higher BMIs are also overweight.
How can you tell if you are overweight?
“If you have a BMI in the overweight range, you are considered overweight.
If you have an average BMI in this range, that means you’re healthy, and you should not worry about having any problems,” Chan explained.
WHO’s Chan said it’s best to talk to your doctor about your symptoms and medical history before deciding whether to seek help from a specialist.
WHO advises that “a weight loss program or lifestyle change should be started as soon as possible,” and that “people should be encouraged to eat healthy, to exercise, and to have a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise.”
What are some ways to improve your health?
“Healthy living is very important, and so we know that being physically active is good, and exercise and good nutrition is very, very important,” Chan stressed.
Chan noted that the WHO/ WOFFF report recommends that overweight and obese people get a healthy diet, exercise regularly, and avoid foods that have a high glycemic index (such as white bread, pasta, potatoes, and refined grains).
Chan said the WHO has also set up a website where people can find more information about their body weight and health, as “this is the place where you can also talk to a doctor about what’s going on in your body.”
What’s a “healthy diet”?
According to WHO, “the WHO is very interested in making sure that everyone has the right nutrition and exercise,” and the recommendations for the WHO’s
