A 41-year-old member asked:

How do I know if I am obese or not?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Figure out one's BMI: The categories normal, overweight, and obese are defined by the body mass index (bmi), which is a measurement that looks at one's weight in comparison to her height. Tall people are allowed to weigh more than short people are. Bmi calculators are available at the doctor's office and also on the internet. An adult with a BMI of 18.5-24.9 is normal, 25-29.9 is overweight, and 30 or more is obese.

What causes obesity to get worse?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Eat more, move less: Anything that causes an obese person to eat more calories or to exercise less will worsen his obesity. Examples: eating as a self-treatment for depression symptoms, eating due to hunger shortly after meals (from high Insulin levels combined with dropping blood sugar levels), not exercising due to being very out-of-shape, not exercising due to being embarrassed by one's public appearance, etc...

A 37-year-old member asked:

Is obesity inherited?

6 doctor answers15 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Usually not: There are few inherited conditions which cause obesity. Most obesity is not inherited, but obesity does tend to be "familial". One can be genetically destined to have more efficient energy use, smaller energy needs, or "slower metabolism"; and thus may become obese even if eating just moderate amounts of food; but he won't get obese if he wills himself to eat less food. He didn't inherit obesity.

Fast weight loss: Depends on how much you want or need to lose. Eating healthy and a lot of exercise might yield a 2lbs per week loss. Losing much more than that probably indicates losing water weight which isn't necessarily healthy. If you do a crash diet to lose weight rapidly, you are at risk of regaining all of it back and more. Healthy eating and exercise is the key. There is no quick & healthy way to lose wt.
