Reduce weight: This is a repeat of what I have said before. My philosophy is that the best way to lose weight is not by dieting, but by changing your lifestyle to a healthier one. You don't need a drastic diet. Make small changes. Eat the right portions, eat 3-5 small meals a day, cut back on carbs and sugars, increase lean protein/veggie/fruit/water intake, and start doing some cardiovascular exercise.

If your overweight is from compulsive overeating, try Overeaters Anonymous. It is not a diet club, but a way of "facing your stuff instead of stuffing your face."

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Bigger & Bigger BMI: The categories overweight, obese, & morbidly obese are defined by the body mass index (bmi), which is a measurement that looks at one's weight in comparison to his height. Tall people are allowed to weigh more than short people are. Bmi calculators are available at the doctor's office and also online. An adult with a BMI of 25-29.9 is overweight, 30-39.9 is obese, and 40 or more is morbidly obese.
