1. Do you really think that surgery is a healthy way to lose weight? I sort of disagree. Yes, there are the RARE few that have genetic conditions predisposing themselves towards overweight situations. But most people got that way because of unhealthy lifestyles. Shouldn’t we only encourage the healthy ways in help people change their lifestyles?

    • Hello Sarah, I never said or suggested that surgery is a healthy way to lose weight. I only mention that as an option, especially, for those that are over weight beyond measure. In most cases, dieting and exercises may not get the person back to shape, surgery is now being considered.

  2. I appreciate the information in this post. I work with seniors all the time and run into the other side of this. Calories and activity are definitely the key. Thank you!

    • Sure Raph, diet and exercise is always the best way to tackle issues associated with fat.

    You mention that skinny people are also prone to having belly fat. That’s me. I know I’m unhealthy, and being skinny nobody knows as it’s hidden. I was just hoping nobody would tell me the truth about my insides! Maybe I should do something about it!

    • Hello Nigel, I will first of all suggest you see a Doctor, and start exercising and eating healthily, if you have not started already.

    Hey Nnamdi!

    Great article man! This is one of those topics that are always sought after. Obesity is crazy here in the states. I actually didn’t know people over 50 should only be taking in 1300 calories..guess I’m gonna have to put a birdy in my mothers ear lol

    If you haven’t already, you should do an article on HIIT..that’s become very popular and has been the only way I could shed my stomach fat lol

    Anyways..keep up the good work..I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    • Thank you Michael, and I did an article on HIIT, but it was not the main topic, but I did mentioned it and explained. You may check out the article here.

    • Thank you Yunier, and you are already doing great for your self for embracing a healthy lifestyle.

    Your blog is very interesting due to that I’m just about same niche. Structure and content is good and with pictures and short paragraphs the readability is fine.

    On the right widget area, there is quite a lot stuff. You should evaluate if all that is necessary?

    • Thank you Kari, will look into it. Thanks for dropping by.

    Hello Michael.

    BIG problem for society: Obesity. Your well presented approach to shed fat will be appreciated. In my opinion, problem of obesity lie deeper. Most people lost orientation of life. They eat not because this is natural support of life, they all life is about eating more. That is bad.

    • Yes, I couldn’t agree with you more, the rate obesity is high. And it should be wise for everyone to mind their lifestyle.

      Some people eat to live and others live to eat. In an unbalanced values-society like ours in the US, of course there will be more obesity. Many people who didn’t really get their life needs met (eg: belonging, self respect, higher purpose) will eat to ease the pain of such loneliness (deprivation). It just looks strange to fat America to consider that there might be more truly malnourished people here (more basic needs unmet) than in the so called “third world”. That said there is an obscenely unequal access to sufficient basic resources in the world, but I for one wouldn’t be surprised if the level of alienation in the US dropped drastically with the level of participation in pro-needs-satisfaction programs everywhere!
