Overweight: A status with BODY WEIGHT that is above certain standard of acceptable or desirable weight. In the scale of BODY MASS INDEX, overweight is defined as having a BMI of 25.0-29.9 kg/m2. Overweight may or may not be due to increases in body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE), hence overweight does not equal "over fat".Obesity: A status with BODY WEIGHT that is grossly above the acceptable or desirable weight, usually due to accumulation of excess FATS in the body. The standards may vary with age, sex, genetic or cultural background. In the BODY MASS INDEX, a BMI greater than 30.0 kg/m2 is considered obese, and a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2 is considered morbidly obese (MORBID OBESITY).Body Mass Index: An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese). (National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)Thinness: A state of insufficient flesh on the body usually defined as having a body weight less than skeletal and physical standards.

The onset of synchronized endocrine events in puberty lead to the capacity for reproduction (FERTILITY), development of secondary SEX CHARACTERISTICS, and other changes seen in ADOLESCENT DEVELOPMENT.Absorptiometry, Photon: A noninvasive method for assessing BODY COMPOSITION. It is based on the differential absorption of X-RAYS (or GAMMA RAYS) by different tissues such as bone, fat and other soft tissues. The source of (X-ray or gamma-ray) photon beam is generated either from radioisotopes such as GADOLINIUM 153, IODINE 125, or Americanium 241 which emit GAMMA RAYS in the appropriate range; or from an X-ray tube which produces X-RAYS in the desired range.

... OBESITY PANACEA. Psychosocial changes in overweight youth attending weight loss camp. Two weeks ago I wrote a post on the psychosocial problems that are often encountered by overweight and obese youth. Today, I would like to discuss a new paper in the same issue of the International Journal of Pediatric Obesity which examines psychosocial changes in overweight youth following attendance at a weight loss camp. After an average stay of 4.3 weeks, campers lost an average of 7.5 kg, which was equivalent to a BMI reduction of 2.9 kg/m2. While these changes in body weight are to be expected, the really interesting changes were in the psychosocial measures. In other words, these campers felt better about themselves, and their ability to control their own body weight. With the exception of physical comfort " ...changes in BMI were not related to post-camp psychosocial outcomes ." In other words, these psychosocial benefits weren't due to the changes in body weight. The magnitude of the changes weren't huge most ...

Adolescent females who are overweight have higher health expenditures than adolescent males who are overweight Research Activities, February 2009, No. Rogowski, Ph.D., used 2001-2003 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey data for 3,463 males and 3,275 females to examine whether overweight adolescents ages 12-19 incur greater health care expenditures than adolescents of normal weight. Males who were overweight or at risk of becoming overweight did not have higher health care expenditures compared with males with normal bodyweights. However, females who were overweight had predicted annual health expenditures of $2,101 compared with $1,311 for females of normal body weight, a difference of $790. Females at risk of becoming overweight had predicted expenditures of $1,778, a difference of $467. Among those incurring health expenditures, the researchers found that, in addition to having slightly higher rates of diabetes and high blood pressure, 18.7 pe...

If overweight girls can shed their excess flab before reaching the age of 18, they may be able to cut the risk of developing diabetes in future years. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health and Harvard University analyzed 16 years of data on nearly 110,000 women, to arrive the conclusion that overweight girls should reduce their weight before 18 to avoid diabetes risk. The series of nine line drawings depicted female silhouettes of different sizes, ranging from gaunt size 1 to obese size 9. The researchers recorded a total of 3,307 cases of type 2 diabetes over the course of the study and found that the nurses who were overweight as girls were more likely to become diabetic as adults.

February 7, 2012. Posted by jean. Are you willing to accept weight loss directives from your doctor if he or she is overweight or obese. According to a recent study, doctors who are overweight are less likely than other doctors to talk to their seriously overweight patients about weight control. According to the study author Sara Bleich, an assistant professor of health policy at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, doctors in general, not just overweight doctors, are not doing a good job about bringing up weight loss with their patients. Although, researchers did find that doctors of normal weight were more confident than their overweight counterparts in their ability to counsel overweight and obese patients about diet and exercise. Bleich said she came up with the idea for the study after going to a dentist who had bad teeth. “I thought, ‘How are you going to take good care of my teeth if you can’t take good care of your own?’ ”.

When a doctor says a person is overweight or obese, it's serious. Being overweight or obese increases the risk of health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure. Health care professionals use a measurement called body mass index BMI to figure out if a person is overweight. The growth charts have lines for "percentiles." Like percentages, percentiles go from 0 to 100. Eight lines on the BMI growth charts show the 5th, 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, 85th, 90th, and 95th percentiles. Based on where your number plots on the chart, the doctor will decide if your BMI is in the underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese range.

Blogs. Special Features. Videos. Blogs. In the study, more than two-thirds of moms misjudged the size of their toddlers, with mothers of overweight children making the least accurate judgments. In fact, 94 percent of mothers of overweight children underestimated their child's true size, and at the same time, many of these moms said they were satisfied with their child's weight. Misjudging a child's size can cause problems — for instance, mothers of normal weight or even overweight children might encourage their sons and daughters to eat more to gain weight, when in reality, the children do not need to. The findings suggest parents should be made more aware of what constitutes a healthy weight during toddlerhood, the researchers said. About 30 percent of children were considered overweight by the researchers, based on a...

Being severely obese, however, was still tied to an almost 30 percent higher risk of death. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson UNITED STATES - Tags: HEALTH LUCAS JACKSON. The paradox, as scientists have called it, is based on past findings that suggest overweight and obese people - even those with additional health problems - live longer than their thinner counterparts. There is also confusion around what BMI should be considered "normal," which is why Flegal and her colleagues conducted their analysis. Past studies looking at the link between BMI and death used varying ranges to describe normal weight, overweight and obesity. Those organizations consider a BMI betwee...

January 15, 2014 No evidence of survival advantage for type 2 diabetes patients who are overweight or obese January 15, 2014 Being overweight or obese does not lead to improved survival among patients with type 2 diabetes. The large-scale study led by Harvard School of Public Health HSPH researchers refutes previous studies that have suggested that, for people with diabetes, being overweight or obese could lead to lower mortality for people compared with normal-weight persons—the so-called "obesity paradox.". They calculated participants' body-mass index BMI shortly before the diagnosis of diabetes and excluded participants reporting a history of diabetes at baseline or cardiovascular disease or cancer before they were diagnosed with diabetes; underweight participants were also excluded. The results showed a positive association between BMI at the time of diabetes diagnosis and risk of death from all causes. Lower mortality was not observed among overweight or obese participants, that is, the findings sh...

It is estimated that more than two-thirds of adults are either overweight 10 to 30 pounds heavier than recommended or obese more than 30 pounds heavier than recommended. The number of overweight and obese school-age children is also on the rise. This is especially alarming given what is known about how obesity increases the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease. The Framingham Study found that regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight are positive factors for cardiovascular health. Your heart is a muscle like any other in your body. Regular exercise strengthens muscles and improves the efficiency of circulation and nutrient and waste exchange. Little or no exercise means less muscle tone and can cause weight gain, which adds stress to the cardiovascular system and increases blood pressure. W...

Regular exercise improves the ability of overweight, previously inactive children to think, plan and even do math, Georgia Health Sciences University researchers report. And the more they exercised, the better the result. Intelligence scores increased an average 3.8 points in those exercising 40 minutes per day after school for three months with a smaller benefit in those exercising 20 minutes daily. Activity in the part of their brain responsible for so-called executive function also increased in children who exercised. Cognitive improvements likely resulted from the brain stimulation that came from movement rather than resulting cardiovascular improvements, such as increased blood and oxygen supplies, Davis said. Studies in older adults have shown exercise benefits the brain and Davis's study extends the science to child...

Tested interventions can use behavioral including dietary and physical activity, environmental, or other relevant approaches. 2009 reported a low awareness among parents of overweight status of their pre-school children, concluding this is concerning because parents of overweight children who do not recognize their child’s weight status may be unlikely to engage in obesity prevention efforts.

*  Probing question: Is being overweight always bad for your health?
Overweight and Obesity. "More than a third of Americans are overweight, and by 2030, nearly as many are projected to be obese, not just overweight," said Jensen. "While they are at increased risk for associated medical conditions, it's simply not true that all of these people are destined to suffer major health problems as a result." Jensen and colleagues have conducted extensive research on the nutritional needs of older adults and have found that for people ages 75 and older, eating diets high in sugar and fat may not adversely affect their health outcomes. Their research has shown that older adults who followed diets high in fat and refined sugar did not die at a higher rate than older adults who followed more healthy diets. According to a new study, being overweight or obese during middle age may increase the risk of certain dementias. A new study from the University of New Hampshire finds that the leg strength and power of overweight older women is significantly less than that of normal-weight older wome...

... About Nursing at NYP/Queens. Community Education. 01, 2009 -- New research indicates that people who are overweight and obese are usually given higher-than-normal doses of radiation in order to obtain usable X-ray images, even though the long-term effects are unknown. "Exposure can be sometimes 20, 30, even 40 times as much for an overweight patient as for a lean person. "So, it's very important for us to start monitoring this exposure for each individual patient so we can get a handle on it." Radiation Dosage Levels Compared According to the researchers, x-rays account for the majority of radiation exposure in people. To gauge how high radiation doses must be to get effective X-rays for overweight and obese people, the researchers used computer simulations that delivered X-ray beams at various strengths to so-called "phantom" patients representing five different fat tissue levels, from lean to obese. And for a more severely overweight or obese person, the needed dosage was up to 40 times greater than fo...

*  .. Can overweight doctors be trusted to treat obese patients?
Can overweight doctors be trusted to treat obese patients. by TMP Editor on January 31, 2012. If you need to lose weight and your doctor is overweight, chances are he or she won’t be much help. Most overweight people aren’t advised to lose weight by their doctors anyway. And fat doctors are unlikely to address the subject with their overweight patients. Fat doctor study. Dentists with bad teeth wouldn’t be expected to have much confidence in proper oral care. Do the same conditions apply to physicians. To find out, researchers at Johns Hopkins University conducted a survey of 500 primary care physicians in the U.S. The survey examined how much confidence the doctors had in themselves when it came to giving advice and winning the trust of obese patients. How fat are doctors. Of the respondents to the survey, 53 percent of the physicians were overweight or obese based on their body mass index BMI, not too far off with the 64 percent of U.S. Only 18 percent of these fat doctors were likely to counsel weig...

(1/3453) Body mass status of school children and adolescents in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Lifestyle and disease patterns in Malaysia have changed following rapid economic development. It is important to find out how these changes have affected the nutritional status and health behaviour of the population, especially school children and adolescents. Therefore a survey on school children's and adolescents' health behaviours and perception in Kuala Lumpur was initiated. This paper only reports the observed body mass status of the school children. A total of 3620 school children were selected in this survey using the method of multi-stage sampling. The students were surveyed using pre-tested questionnaires while weight and height were measured by the research team in the field. Using the cut-off of BMI-for-age >or= 95th percentile and <5th percentile for overweight and underweight respectively, there were a total of 7.3% of overweight students and 14.8% of underweight students. When analysed by gender; 7.5% of boys and 7.1% girls were overweight, while 16.2% of the boys and 13.3% of the girls were underweight. The youngest age group (11 years old) had the highest prevalence of underweight as well as overweight. With increasing age, the prevalence of underweight and overweight decreased and more children were in the normal weight range. The overall prevalence of overweight among the three ethnic groups was similar. However the prevalence of underweight was highest among the Indian students (24.9%), followed by Malays (18.9%) and Chinese (9.5%) (P <0.001). The results showed that both the problems of under- and over-nutrition co-exist in the capital city of Malaysia. The promotion of healthy eating and physical activities is required to address the problems of under- and over-nutrition in order to build up a strong and healthy nation in the future.  (+info)

(2/3453) Noninvasive evaluation of endothelial function and arterial mechanics in overweight adolescents.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate endothelial function and arterial mechanics in apparently healthy overweight adolescents. DESIGN: Analytical observational study. SETTING: Tertiary hospital. METHODS: 40 asymptomatic, normotensive and non-smoking adolescents (11 to 18 years old) were evaluated. Of these 20 were overweight or obese as per International Obesity Task Force criteria while 20 were controls. High resolution ultrasonography was performed to measure flow mediated and Glyceryltrinitrate induced dilation in brachial artery, and arterial mechanics in common carotid artery. RESULTS: Overweight adolescents had significantly lower ratio of flow mediated dilation to Glyceryltrinitrate mediated dilation (0.40 plusminus 0.41 versus 0.61 plusminus 0.17; P = 0.039). On age and sex adjusted multiple regression analysis, the ratio of flow mediated to Glyceryltrinitrate mediated dilation had a significant negative association with body mass index (P = 0.012) and mean skin fold thickness (P = 0.011). However, for mean skin fold thickness, flow mediated dilation also had a significant negative association (P = 0.027). None of the measures of arterial mechanics were significantly different amongst overweights and controls, or significantly associated with either body mass index or mean skin fold thickness. CONCLUSION: Endothelial function can be mildly impaired in apparently healthy adolescents who are overweight (assessed by body mass index) or adipose (assessed by skin fold thickness). The use of overweight for screening adolescents likely to develop coronary artery disease is therefore justified. Skin fold thickness is a better indicator than Body Mass Index for predicting endothelial function.  (+info)

(3/3453) Prevalence of overweight, obesity, and comorbid conditions among U.S. and Kentucky adults, 2000-2002.

INTRODUCTION: Obesity rates for adults in Kentucky are regularly among the highest in the nation. Since 1991, adult obesity in Kentucky and the United States has nearly doubled. This trend is of great concern because excess weight has been associated with several chronic diseases and conditions. This paper reports on the prevalence of overweight and obesity among adults in Kentucky between 2000 and 2002. The estimates produced by this study will provide baseline figures for developing Kentucky's statewide obesity action plan. METHODS: A secondary data analysis was performed using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. Prevalence estimates and odds ratios were calculated for the United States and Kentucky. RESULTS: In Kentucky, 24.2% of adults were obese, compared with 21.9% nationally (P < .001). There were also significantly more overweight adults in Kentucky than there were nationwide (P < .001). Logistic regression showed that overweight and obese adults were more likely to report various comorbid conditions. CONCLUSION: Overweight and obesity estimates in Kentucky were significantly higher than nationwide figures. However, overweight/obese adults in Kentucky were no more likely than their U.S. counterparts to report selected comorbid conditions.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: Overweight and obesity have become a global epidemic and are increasing rapidly in both childhood and adolescence. Obesity is linked both to socioeconomic status and to ethnicity among adults. It is unclear whether similar associations exist in childhood. The aim of the present study was to assess differences in overweight and obesity in migrant and German children at school entry. METHODS: The body mass index (BMI) was calculated for 525 children attending the 2002 compulsory pre-school medical examinations in 12 schools in Bielefeld, Germany. We applied international BMI cut off points for overweight and obesity by sex and age. The migration status of children was based on sociodemographic data obtained from parents who were interviewed separately. RESULTS: The overall prevalence of overweight in children aged 6-7 was 11.9% (overweight incl. obesity), the obesity prevalence was 2.5%. The prevalence of overweight and obesity was higher for migrant children (14.7% and 3.1%) than for German children (9.1% and 1.9%). When stratified by parental social status, migrant children had a significantly higher prevalence of overweight than German children in the highest social class. (27.6% vs. 10.0%, p = 0.032) Regression models including country/region and socioeconomic status as independent variables indicated similar results. The patterns of overweight among migrant children differed only slightly depending on duration of stay of their family in Germany. CONCLUSION: Our data indicate that children from ethnic minorities in Germany are more frequently overweight or obese than German children. Social class as well as family duration of stay after immigration influence the pattern of overweight and obesity in children at school entry.  (+info)

(5/3453) Aging with quality of life--a challenge for society.

This article focus on biological, nutritional, psychological, medical and social variables which have proven useful indicators for assessing wellbeing of individuals. Such objective data (measured by the two investigators) and subjective information (self-reported by the participants) were collected between 2002-2003 from samples of healthy, free living females and males aged between 59 and 92 years from Vienna and surroundings. In both these groups some habitual practices (habit variables) were observed of elderly and old which have a negative influence on health i.e low daily liquid uptake and smoking. There is also a fair amount of overweight and obesity (BMI>or=30) and also of hypertension, particularly in males, There is also malnourishment, predominantly in females, as reflected by the Body Cell Mass Index. Several participants either were not aware of being hypertensive or admitted that they deliberately ignored medical advice. With respect to social variables there are greater percentages of married males and widowed females. Possibly partially resulting from this loss of the partner a greater number of females report feelings of loneliness than do males. Positive results relate to the overall high percentages of family contacts, positive feelings towards life and physical activity as reported by the large majority of the participants. These findings stress the need for further information of living habits of the elderly and old as a possible guide of helping improve their quality of life.  (+info)

(6/3453) Childhood overweight and maturational timing in the development of adult overweight and fatness: the Newton Girls Study and its follow-up.

OBJECTIVE: Although several studies have suggested that early menarche is associated with the development of adult overweight, few have accounted for childhood overweight before menarche. STUDY DESIGN: A 30-year follow-up of the original participants in the Newton Girls Study, a prospective study of development in a cohort of girls followed through menarche, provided data on premenarcheal relative weight and overweight (BMI >85th percentile), prospectively obtained age at menarche, self-reported adult BMI, overweight (BMI > 25), obesity (BMI > 30) and, for a subset of participants, percentage body fat by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry. RESULTS: Of the 448 women who participated in the adult follow-up at a mean age of 42.1 years (SD: 0.76 years), 307 had childhood data with which to characterize premenarcheal and menarcheal weight status and age at menarche. After a follow-up of 30.1 years (SD: 1.4 years), reported BMI was 23.4 (4.8), 28% were overweight, and 9% were obese. In multivariate linear and logistic-regression analyses, almost all of the influence on adult weight status was a result of premenarcheal weight status (model R2 = 0.199). Inclusion of a variable to reflect menarcheal timing provided very little additional information (model R2 = 0.208). Girls who were overweight before menarche were 7.7 times more likely to be overweight as adults (95% confidence interval: 2.3, 25.8), whereas early menarche (at < or = 12 years of age) did not elevate risk (odds ratio: 1.3, 95% confidence interval: 0.66, 2.43). A similar pattern of results was observed when percentage body fat in adulthood was evaluated. CONCLUSIONS: The apparent influence of early maturation on adult female overweight is largely a result of the influence of elevated relative weight on early maturation. Interventions to prevent and treat overweight should focus on girls before they begin puberty.  (+info)

(7/3453) Intervertebral disc height in treated and untreated overweight post-menopausal women.

BACKGROUND: The effect of the menopause and HRT on the intervertebral discs has not been investigated. METHODS: One hundred women were recruited, comprising of 44 post-menopausal women on HRT, 33 untreated post-menopausal women and 23 pre-menopausal women. The height of the intervertebral discs between the 12th thoracic vertebra and the 3rd lumbar vertebra was measured by utilizing the bone densitometer height cursors. RESULTS: The untreated menopausal group of women had the lowest total disc height (D1-D3: 1.95 0.31 cm). This was significantly lower than the pre-menopausal group D1-D3: 2.16 0.24 cm) and the hormone-treated group (2.2 0.26 cm) (P > 0.02). The 2nd intervertebral disc consistently maintained a significant difference between the untreated menopausal group (D2: 0.63 0.13) and the other two groups (pre-menopausal group (D2: 0.72 0.09 cm) and treated menopausal group (D2: 0.73 0.12 cm) (P > 0.02). CONCLUSIONS: Estrogen-replete women appear to maintain higher intervertebral discs compared to untreated post-menopausal women. The estrogenic milieu may be relevant because of the significant impact it has on the hydrophilic glycosaminoglycans, the water content, collagen and elastin of the intervertebral discs. The maintenance of adequate disc height may allow the intervertebral discs to retain their discoid shape and viscoelastic function, containing vertical forces which may threaten spinal architecture leading to vertebral body compression fractures.  (+info)

(8/3453) Basal endothelial nitric oxide release is preserved in overweight and obese adults.

OBJECTIVE: Impaired basal nitric oxide release is associated with a number of cardiovascular disorders including hypertension, arterial spasm, and myocardial infarction. We determined whether basal endothelial nitric oxide release is reduced in otherwise healthy overweight and obese adult humans. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Seventy sedentary adults were studied: 32 normal weight (BMI <25 kg/m(2)), 24 overweight (BMI > or = 25 < 30 kg/m(2)), and 14 obese (BMI > or = 30 kg/m(2)). Forearm blood flow (FBF) responses to intra-arterial infusions of N(g)-monomethyl-L-arginine (5 mg/min), a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, were used as an index of basal nitric oxide release. RESULTS: N(g)-monomethyl-L-arginine elicited significant reductions in FBF in the normal weight (from 4.1 +/- 0.2 to 2.7 +/- 0.2 mL/100 mL tissue/min), overweight (4.1 +/- 0.1 to 2.8 +/- 0.2 mL/100 mL tissue/min), and obese (3.9 +/- 0.3 to 2.7 +/- 0.2 mL/100 mL tissue/min) subjects. Importantly, the magnitude of reduction in FBF (approximately 30%) was similar among the groups. DISCUSSION: These results indicate that the capacity of the endothelium to release nitric oxide under basal conditions is not compromised in overweight and obese adults.  (+info)


What percentage of people overweight by at least 20% lbs become diabetics?


What percentage of people overweight by at least 20% lbs become diabetics?
Any kind of diabetes. Persons over 50 and overweight for at least 10 years. If you know please give source.
I don't think anybody knows, for which, the advise of physicians to overweight patients should be "If you loose weight your chances of not developing diabetes will improve by several percentage points.
If you are a dr or dietitian, please answer.
----------

Well, considering the estimation that less than 50% of overweight people actually ever become diabetic, that might be your answer. By the same token, less than 50% of diabetics are ever overweight until they are put on insulins.

So I really have my doubts that weight has anything to do with it at all. 

I do know for sure that high glucose levels over a 6 month time period will yank every bit of fat off a person. I am back to underweight again after trying a different basal insulin the insurance company likes. And that was only for a 3 month period.


What is the difference from Overweight and Obese?


I always thought overweight is being obese, just obese is the medical term for overweight.
----------

Hi !

Overweight refers to an individual weighing 10% or more of what is considered his or her recommended healthy weight (as determined by large-scale population surveys). 

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy.


What to do about being extremely overweight?


I have a friend who is very overweight. He is 6' 3" tall and weighs 28 stone. He has a tendency to snack away at chocolate bars and biscuits during the day and even eat these on and off during the night. If he were to cut this out, and get more excercise, should his weight gradually drop?

What are his chances of ever getting rid of all this extra weight and down to a healthy weight?
Would all this loss of weight age his appearence?
----------

ugh.  as someone who used to be very overweight. (my weight was 260 lbs at my highest, now am at 140)  i did everything to lose weight.  ultimately i had gastric bypass and took up marathoning to keep it off. (6 years)  Diet and exercise are the best way to do it.  Surgical intervention is a LAST RESORT-  almost died and i still have complications. He must change his behavioral patterns.  this is the most challenging part.  Just be there for him and encourage him.  He'll do it when he is ready.


Why do overweight people tend to live longer than underweight people?


I've noticed that overweight people tend to have problems in their 40s and 50s while underweight people tend to die or have problems in their 20s or 30s. 

Why is that? Would a 5 foot 11 person be considered more healthy if he was 200 pounds or 100 pounds?
----------

Both are bad, but I guess if you're overweight at least your body is getting nutrients and energy to survive, while if you're starving yourself your body is burning itself in order to keep going.


How much overweight do you have to be to have lap band surgery?


I was just wondering how much overweight you have to be to have lap band surgery? I am 5' 6" and I weigh about 205. I have tried dieting, weight watchers and diet pills. I was just wondering if I would be a good canidate for the surgery??
----------

definetly not.  

while you are overweight there is absolutely no medical research that can determine the long term effects of that procedure.  however common sense would tell you that changing the physical nature of the gastro intestinal tract is not good.

you have not been given the proper tools to lose weight, shoot me an email.


How does being overweight effect the chances of getting pregnant?


I've been TTC for 19 months now with no luck at all. I first started to think I couldn't have kids because it took my mom 18 months to get pregnant the first time, and she had several miscarriages.

But now, I really believe its because I'm overweight. (By at least 30 pounds) As of today, I'm working out, watching what I eat, and so on to lose weight. I'm doing this to get healthy, to hopefully get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy.

But to fill my curiosity, how does being overweight exactly effect the chances of getting pregnant?
----------

Research has shown that being overweight can cause hormone imbalances that can result in conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome, lack of ovulation and sub-fertility (which is where conception takes significantly longer than normal). It can also affect the effectiveness of fertility drugs and IVF which is usually why overweight women in need of fertility treatment have to get their weight down to a "target weight" before that treatment is administered.

The same is true for people who are underweight.

We're all put together differently though and it won't affect everyone, it just increases the chance that you'll have difficulty conceiving. Being over (or under) weight can also have health implications once you're actually pregnant so it's wise to get as healthy as you can before conceiving in order to see you through the nine months with as few problems as possible.

Best of luck to you and speak to your doctor if you have any worries about conception.


How do I motivate an busy overweight person to lose weight so I can help and train her accordingly?


My mother is probably a good 50 pounds overweight. She is 50 years old and at the point where it is more of a health concern to lose some pounds. Thing is - She's super busy and wants to lose the weight magically somehow. But I tell her she must put forth some serious effort to see results. I wish she was just motivated enough to ask me to run with her or bike with her - not me basically yelling at her to workout. How can I subliminally change her attitude and her desire to lose weight?
----------

She's got to want to do it for herself. No amount of yelling at her is likely to make a positive difference. In fact, the stress of being harped on about it all the time, may cause her to eat more (many overweight people are stress eaters). 

If she wants to lose weight but not actually get into a workout program, then she can cut her calories and eat healthier. No junk food or fast food, and watch the calorie intake. On top of that, do more walking...park far from the office or store and walk, take stairs instead of elevators, walk around when talking on the phone...instead of taking a break at work, take a walk, etc. 

It's easy to incorporate 30 mins or more of activity into our day, without stopping to do a "workout". However, the more one does, the better.

I hope she decides it's worth her time and effort to shed some pounds. Good luck!


Is it possible to be overweight by 100 pounds but not get diabetes?


My cousin has been 100 pounds overweight for 10 years but he runs regularly for 3 hours without a problem. He's in great shape according to heatbeat, blood pressure and sugar level. So is it possible or should he lose the weight?
----------

Yes. Not everyone who is obese has the genes for Type 2 diabetes, and some people even have protective genes.

That said, being severely overweight (i.e. 400 LBS+) often creates insulin resistance solely due to the excess fat. Fat is now recognized as an endocrine organ that secrets hormones, not an inert tissue. In this case, someone morbidly obese has a very good chance of being insulin resistant regardless of their genes. This may or may not eventually lead to Type 2 diabetes.

People with genes that highly predispose to Type 2 diabetes simply get the disorder with much less weight gain. 20 lbs overweight may do it.

In fact, just being 10 lbs overweight is enough to up your Type 2 diabetes risk, yet another reason to stay at a healthy weight. 

While it's better to be fat but fit, it's best to be thin and fit. Excess weight is very hard on your heart, joints, liver,etc. Obesity is associated with many problems from asthma, to some types of cancer, to fatty liver disease.

Is your cousin still young? It would not be uncommon for a 20 year old obese person to still pass as "healthy". But that may change when he reaches 40.

I agree that he may have excess muscle as opposed to fat (but not 100 lbs worth!). How are his thyroid hormones? Other hormone levels? Has he been tested for genetic metabolic diseases? How is his diet?

Perhaps he is just genetically larger. And that is OK if he is working out and eating healthy. But if his diet is poor, he should look at cleaning it up. This should help bring about weight loss and protect his health in the future.

Good luck!
