Does Being Overweight Damage Your Brain?

Sorry for the over the top headline, but the answer to the question appears to be yes…and please read this whole post, there is something really good at the end.

How Being Overweight Affects The Brain

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh scanned the brains of 94 people over the age of 70. They were looking to see the differences in the brains of people who were of normal weight (BMI under 25), overweight (BMI 25-30), and obese (BMI over 30).

If you are 5 foot 10 and you weigh 220, you have a BMI of 31.6 and would be considered obese. If you are 5 foot 10 and weigh 180, your BMI is 25.8 and you would be considered overweight for purposes of the study. There are certain athletes with lot of muscle mass that make the BMI inaccurate, but for the rest of us it is a valid measurement.

Exercise and the Fat Gene

New Research on the US Amish community demonstrates that there is a "fat gene" AND that you can combat it with vigorous exercise.

The complex interaction between our genes and lifestyles can mean that some people are more likely to pack on pounds than others.

Although it is not completely understood, several genetic variants have been linked to obesity, but there isn't just "one" gene.

However, the most common of these...continue reading »

A New Reason Why It is Harder NOT to Overeat as We Age

If it wasn't hard enough already, new research out of Monash University and now published in Nature demonstrates that as we age key appetite control cells in the human brain degenerate over time, causing increased hunger!

Obesity as a sociological phenomenon

For a long time, people have thought of obesity as simply being a medical issue: people ate more than they expended, and gained weight.

A lot of research has gone into the physical and physiological aspects of weight loss; looking for "the fat gene", promoting low fat or low carb diets, and also looking at how people could rebalance their desires for high-fat foods.

New research from the University of Warwick suggests that people become obese if the people around them are obese. Like that old saying, "working hard to keep up with the Joneses"...continue reading »
