Why is there so much emphasis on losing weight these days?

The reason for asking people to lose weight especially if their Body Mass Index is more than 25 is that obesity is associated with so many diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and worsening pain of osteoarthritis due to excessive weight on the joints, just to mention a few.

We know that even a weight loss of 10% of body weight in an overweight individual can result in a significant reduction of these associated problems.
