If you are obese, are you more likely to have an obese baby due to your actual size or due to the stuff in your diet?
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.

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.

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.

Peace and good health. ...Read more
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.
