Abstract

Weight gain and obesity has reached epidemic proportions, with the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) reaching 20-25% of the global population. MetS is a cluster of metabolic abnormalities, including weight gain, associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and stroke. While individuals in the general population are at risk of physical conditions, such as MetS, people with mental illness are at even higher risk.
