Will I become obese if I do not exercise regularly?

A: obesity is, at its core, ''an excess proportion of total body fat'' according to webmd.com. All humans have percentages of body fat and muscle tissue that compose the physical form, but an obese person has a significantly larger percent of fat cells on their body verses someone of a ''normal'' weight. Typically, obesity is measured and diagnosed according to an individual''s BMI, or Body Mass Index. This is a range of numbers that measures height verses weight for men and women. According to this scale, a BMI of 30 or higher is technically considered obese. To calculate a BMI, you simply divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches, or you can simple use a chart like the one found at the link below: ...


Do you think I am just overweight or obese?

A: definitely obese! no you''re not fat! if you feel that you are obese, then you should put your body type to good use & join football. my cousin brian is just like you: sixteen, tall, filled out. he said he felt unhealthy (he was always tired & all he wanted to do was sit around the house and watch t.v.), so he went out for the football & wrestling teams at his school. he''s lost about 20 lbs., & now his "loose" weight is solid muscle, and he feels much better :) good luck! OMG! I was talking about this yesterday! You are so -not- obese! The BMI scale is extremely faulty. First off, it''s based on a two-dimensional model (I pretty sure you''re three-dimensional, unless there''s something I don''t know!) Also, BMI fails to take a lot of things into account. There...

A: what''s it to you *** hole. what do you care if some one is Happy or not Monique is pretty because of her confidence.

What Does it Mean to be Morbidly Obese?

A: The term obese is often used interchangeably with morbidly obese, but these are two separate terms signifying different levels of weight over ordinary body weight. Many people fall into the obese category and weigh about 20% more than the ordinary body mass index (BMI) for their height. It doesn’t take a lot to be considered obese and in developed countries like the USA, a fairly large percentage of people are in this category. To be morbidly obese means that person has a much higher body fat percentage and BMI might be anywhere from 35 to 40 and up. There are disputes on whether BMI of 35 or 40 is the beginning point of morbid obesity. A BMI of 40 is more typically cited as the BMI that indicates a person is morbidly obese. What this really translates to in...

Are Parents to blame for Childhood obesity?

A: Often when you look at the parents of an obese child, more often then not, they parents are obese too! This makes since because health conscious parents would pass down their knowledge to their children (in moderation and still let their children indulge). Personally, both of my parents were very firm about me participating in sports. They were both over weight (not obese) and that gave me motivation to never end up like them. While parents undoubtedly influence their children''s eating and exercising habits to an extent, I don''t think there is one single factor to "blame" when it comes to problems like this. Off the top of my head, those ubiquitous McDonald''s restaurants with their playgrounds and little toys (not to mention the numerous commercials they have in-between TV...
