Overweight (Definition)

Nearly two-thirds of the United States population is overweight. There are many ways to determine if a person is overweight, but experts believe that a person's body mass index (BMI) is the best way to assess an adult's weight in relation to their height. * A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal. * Adults with a BMI between 25 and 29.9 are considered overweight.

I am overweight and i would like to loose 10 pounds in 2 months. Is that too much? If not what is the best diet to achieve my goal?

Health: That sounds like an achievable goal if you are overweight. It is important to insure that you are actually over-weight before attempting to lose weight. Some gals consider themselves to be overweight when they aren't. Hydrate well (at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day) & get in 5 servings of veggies and 4 servings of fruit per day. Stay physically active every day. ...Read more

Aim for at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 servings of fruit per day. Use whole grain when possible. Avoid sodas, alcohol & junk carbohydrates. Get in a good mix of aerobic & weight lifting exercises. ...Read more

What is a diet best to get on if I'm overweight?

What is a diet  best to get on if I'm overweight?

Several: I see the most consistent results and sustained weight loss with Weight Watchers. They're not trying to sell you products or have you do something strange your body won't be doing in the long run. They teach you how to make better decisions. Exercise is not an option, it needs to be done. You can also talk with your doctor about several prescription options. ...Read more

What is the best mattress for old overweight people?

What is the best mattress for old overweight people?

Try then out: The best mattress is the most comfortable mattress. Generally, one that doesn't sag is better for your back. I think a soft covering is nice. Most stores will let you lie down and try it. Don't be shy! ...Read more

I have never exercised a day in my life and am overweight. Wanna get in shape. What is the best exercise to start with.

Walking: Is the best exercise. However, if you walk 1 mile only, you will burn up only 100 calories, about one 5th of a single doughnut. Restrict your diet to god made food. ...Read more

When is the best time to exercise if overweight?

When is the best time to exercise if overweight?

Best for YOU: Pick a time that works best for you. For some, a 6 am time gets them going and is easy to stay committed. For others, it is more consistent to climb 2-3 flights of stairs at lunch. Still others find it relaxing and convenient to stop at gym on way home. Overall, best to imagine a time when you can make it a routine like brushing your teeth. ...Read more
