I'm morbidly obese at 496 pounds and I have insulin resistance. Where do I start to reverse both the insulin resistance and the morbid obesity?
Marginally: A bmi between 18 and 25 is considered normal, 25-30 overweight, over 30 obese.

Some limitations: Bmi is "body mass index", a calculation that relates height and weight. A bmi under 25 is normal, 25-30 is "overweight", above 30 is "obese". However, bodybuilders with high muscle mass will have bmis above 30, but are not obese. As we age, the bmi may not change much, but the amount of body fat compared to muscle increases. For any given bmi, women will typically have more body fat than men. ...Read more

Exercising on a stationary cycle beneficial or not for weight loss&reduction of abdominal obesity?
