Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Obesity is strappingly associated to sociocultural factors.
In western countries obesity is commoner in lower than in higher societal
classes. Therefore, the advance of obesity is prejudiced by ones social status.
However, also the converse is true, the recent research recommend that obese
people lose social status. This is perhaps due to intolerance and favoritism
against obese persons in the current western society, while many think the
remedy for this is to treat and interact with such people freely by helping and
encouraging them to overcome it.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
