Abstract

Obesity is a state of excess adipose tissue mass and it is generally expressed in terms of Body Mass Index (BMI). The autonomic nervous system plays an important role in regulating energy expenditure and body fat content. Heart rate variability (HRV) is one of the tests which measure the effect of autonomic regulation on the heart. In the present study , we have determined certain HRV related traits among two group of students having BMI>25 kg/m2, considered as overweight (OW) and BMI
