I was wondering what's 3 reasons why increased portion size affects obesity?

I was wondering what's 3 reasons why increased portion size affects obesity?

Portion size, obese: Since the 1950s, our portion size has tripled in this country. Popcorn at movie theater....3x bigger, hamburger, 3x bigger, candy bars, bottles of soda, all bigger. And we've all been trained not to throw out food, because there are starving people in the world. So, if you eat more, even healthy, you eat more calories and fat. Also, you get served 3x more when eating out at restaurants. ...Read more

Remember: The determinations of someone's overall weight is complicated. While part of the component is how much you are taking in caloric wise, the other part is based on how active you are physical but also how active you are metabolically. Some people have slower metabolisms than others, which means they have to be very careful about their intake and activity levels. ...Read more

Can a obese man 28 years old get increase his penis size while reducing his weight.?

Can a obese man 28 years old get increase his penis size while reducing his weight.?

See answer: Many obese men feel their penis is too short but most often perception and not reality: related to accumulation of fat in the area just above base of penis which drapes over it making penis seem buried or short. Actual length (measured from tip to pubic bone with penis on stretch) is normal. Treatment is weight loss (not pills or special exercises or devices) and sexual activity: use it or lose it. ...Read more

Normal variation: There is a great deal of variation among folks and body parts, including the penis. Please ask your doc to examine you to put your mind at ease and then love all that you are. Don't use penis as a measure of self-worth. Weight can swallow up the penis and it can look smaller externally. I don't know of any studies but i'm sure someone does.

My boy eight years old a lil over weight but not obese.His penis is the same size as when he was born.It also dosnt get hard at all.Do i need to worry?

Hard to say: Overweight kids often position some of their fat stores in the tissues surrounding the penis and scrotum. That fat padding can cause the penis to appear small. Intermittent erections do occur in kids but the lack of noticed events is no cause for concern at this age. Mention your concern at his next checkup. If needed the doc can do some testing, but most are normal. ...Read more

Lose weight: You should lose weight for the sake of your health. It will not make you bigger, but being healthy you will be able to use it better. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
