Quite likely: Losing weight has a very good chance of correcting the lipid abnormalities. 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.

Im seeing so many boomers on crutches. Amateur athletes or victims of overweight?

A lot of sports: Unfortunately im seeing many athletes who are playing 2 or 3 sports all through the year yound athletes are doing to much even in the off seasons which is not allowing minor injuries to heal.

They glamorize the skinny models and at the same time support the advertisement of poisonous foods with sugar, chemicals and pesticides. Our society is confused by this and that is why we have such a dliemma with our weight - both over and under. Rejoice in your healthy weight, and turn a deaf ear to the media! ...Read more

BMI & body fat %.: The BMI reflects your weight with respect to your height, but as you suggested does not reflect body composition. People who are very muscular could have a higher BMI that would not be truly reflective of their fitness and health. Combining the BMI with a body fat percentage would greatly increase its accuracy. ...Read more

My trainer said, that people who used to be obese, then lost their weight, will notice having larger than average leg muscles, compared to others.?

How to lose belly fat? Hi, 

i am a south Asian male, 42 years of age. Regardless of dieting and exercising my belly is over 39 inches. Rest of the body is in good shape.

Any tips on how can I get rid of those love handles will be greatly appreciated.

T

Exercise: Continue to do aerobic exercise, and realize it takes time. You didnt get those love handles in a day or a week or a month. Eat fewer calories than you need in a day to help your body lose the fat in that area. Slow loss of one pound a week would be best advised. Consult a dietician if you need help in a meal plan that will help. Most of all- dont give up. ...Read more
