More calories/gram: Fats contain 9 calories in every gram while carbs and protein have only 4 calories per gram. So eating a food that is mostly fat will give you more than 2 1/2 times the calories of a food the same size that is mostly carbs or protein. For example, putting a tablespoon of butter or margarine on a slice of bread will give you 2 1/2 times the calories as a tablespoon of jam, which is mostly carbs. ...Read more

If one parent is obese, the risk of the child's obesity increases from 7% to 40%. If you are no longer obese, keep it that way by continuing to be active and be mindful of what you eat. ...Read more
I understand your concern.
Studies done on both cold-water swimmers and hospital patients have shown that people with a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) are less susceptible to hypothermia because fat insulates the body’s core.
In people with a higher BMI, subcutaneous fat effectively insulates the body’s core, while the skin cools.
Some obese people feel cold in winter. ...Read more

Iam 34 year old lady with problem of obesity. Is there any medicine available in market that really help in burning away the fat.
I am wondering if my son is at risk of becoming obese. He weighs 91kg and is 5'2 tall. He has been teased about being fat before. He struggles to run.
Weight: Your son doesn't have to run. Start w/seeing a doctor to clear him medically for exercise and rule out medical causes. Then think about going to a gym and have a trainer to start with. Or use an exercise bike at home. Brisk walking can be helpful too. Teasing is wrong but encourage him to focus on inner values rather than number on scale. Peace and good health. ...Read more

What are the ways that people convince a mobidly obese person to stop eating high sugar high fat high sodium foods?
Convincing or maybe: The person is convinced but just can't seem to do it. That's more likely. Why that is so is still not clear. Even in some folks who do stick to a low sugar, low fat and low sodium diet don't lose weight. That is in part because they don't reduce total calories to a point where they lose weight. Probably most important of all is getting enough exercise so metabolism can accelerate & so lose weight. ...Read more

Age 40. Never been diabetic or fat. I thought Type 2 only afflicts fat/obese people. So if I've been diagnosed as pre-diabetic is it Type 1?
Could be type 1: Hi. Yes, type 1 is certainly possible. Easiest way to tell would be to check type 1 autoantibodies (antibodies against GAD, IA-2, and insulin). There are, however, non-obese type 2's. Whatever type it is, control it well, eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly, control blood pressure and lipids, and don't smoke. Good luck! ...Read more

Why is there fat bias when an ors treats a slim patient differently from an obese patient with the same injury.
Perhaps: I can't speak for everyone but justifiably or not some healthcare providers may well feel that at least a part of the injury might have been sustained due to obesity's effect on one's body. It is also likely that it is harder to examine an obese person than a normal-weight one. On the other hand, it may also be your own perception. If you are obese, losing weight can only help. ...Read more

If you are able use water aerobics, swimming or water therapy to start her on an exercise routine that's suitable for her abilities. Be a good example for your daughter. ...Read more
I am about 5 feet tall, 26 years old, weigh roughly 140 lbs, and just had my body fat measured at 44%. Am I actually "obese? " This was devastating.
I have an RX for Test-E IM inj., but am not sure which needles to use? I'm not obese and have very little fat on my buttocks. 1" or 1.5"? What gauge?
1" is fine: Hi. 1" is fine. Testosterone enanthate is pretty viscous stuff, so we usually have people draw it into the syringe with an 18 g needle, then change needles to a 20 g for injecting into them. So a 1" 20g needle should suit you. Have you thought about transdermal testosterone? You might want to talk with your doc about that. Good luck! ...Read more
