Is having 16.8% total body fat with 4.5% visceral fat healthy for 150lbs 5 11 male?

Probably: It seems like your fat percentage is a little high. However, your overall body weight is very low, and maintenance of a low body weight reduces risk. It would be better to focus more of your calorie intake on low inflammatory proteins and complex carbohydrates; simple carbs promote visceral fat deposition and also the deposition of high percentages of fat in general. TY for this fun question! ...Read more

Hi, my body Weight is 98., i want to fat less body.  Green apple flavor vodka is fat burning??

NO!!! Increases fat!: Vodka contains a lot of alcohol. Your body converts alcohol to sugar and sugar to fat. Vodka increases body fat, no matter what flavor. To reduce body fat eat less, esp. less sugars & starches, and exercise. There are NO substitutes for this. See http://bit.Ly/1dhw9ht for a healthy diet. Dr. Weil has useful info: http://huff.To/19ygs8y- see his "discuss that" link in his article. ...Read more

What is considered anorexia BMI?

No: As long you are in good health, performing your daily activities, not obsessed with your weight, it is okay. You will gain weight, as you age, do not get too worked up if your BMI goes up to 20 or so. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Is consuming 920 calories a day ok? I'm trying to lose weight by exercising & counting calories. I'm 140 lbs, ideal weight is my prebaby weight of 122

Is consuming 920 calories a day ok? I'm trying to lose weight by exercising & counting calories. I'm 140 lbs, ideal weight is my prebaby weight of 122

Many more ?s: It is possible to eat around 1, 000 cal per day to loose weight. The trick is getting the proper nutrition and vitamins into that constrained calorie count. I would also say that exercise at that calorie level would need to be temporarily halved or stopped, depending on what you are doing and how intense the workout is. A better approach may be a few more calories with moderate exercise. ...Read more
