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'm a overweight 17.5 stone 17 y/o and want to lose weight through exercise but everytime I do up to 20 sit ups i get terrible stomach cramps. Why so?
Situps: It may just be that your abdominal muscles are weak and not used to doing sit-ups. When you do a very strenuous workout, it is not uncommon to have sore muscles. This usually means you have broken them down and are rebuilding stronger muscles. Start with maybe 10 sit-ups and slowly work your way up to 20 sit-ups over the course of a week or two. ...Read more

Am i too thin for tumescent liposuction? I have over the past three years worked hard to get my body back into good shape, and I am no longer in the overweight range. I'm 5'5 and 135 pounds. Will tumescent liposuction remove the few remaining stubborn fat
I'm very overweight but losing now, just wondering.. if being overweight shortens lifespan, will get/staying slim erase that, or am I already doomed?
Don't have answer: Hi. Unfortunately, that hasn't been studied. It's a good question, but we don't know the answer. If I had to speculate based on best evidence available, I believe that if you acquire and maintain ideal BMI, you'll erase that shortening. So live healthily, and don't assume you're "doomed". Good luck! ...Read more
