People with obesity can become stuck in weight loss and weight gain cycle when weight loss is the primary goal of their obesity treatment via Gaesser & Angadi #ph260720 #obesity…
After analyzing 200 meta-analyses & individual studies Gaesser & Angadi found that people with obesity who began exercising after previously being sedentary lowered their risk of early death by at least 30% even without any weight loss #ph260720 #iScienceJournal #prevention
Exercising with the goal of weight loss has often been shown to be ineffective but research is showing that exercise improves conditions like high blood pressure among people with obesity even without weight loss #ph260720 #hearthealthy #HAES
Dieting rarely leads to weight loss and can even be dangerous as many people quickly regain any lost weight. This yo-yo approach can interfere with metabolism and lead to conditions like diabetes and high cholesterol #ph2607203 #dietsdontwork
“It looks like exercise makes fat more fit” and improves insulin resistance by changing the molecular signaling inside fat cells. You don't need to lose weight to be healthy #ph2607203 #science
BMI, the widely used weight-to-height ratio, determines obesity status. While BMI shows trends over time, is BMI incredibly outdated, and does it perpetuate racist & sexist ideologies? Dr. @SaStrings unpacks this and more #ph2607203 #morethanbmi RT
Weight stigma and fatphobia are serious public health and mental health issues #ph2607203 #weightstigma
The stigma starts young. “Summer weight loss camps” for kids with obesity with the obsessive focus on weight loss rather than understanding obesity as a disease sets kids up for failure @askdrfatima explains #ph2607203 #kidsmentalhealth RT
How can we flip the script on #obesity and promote #exercise not just as a tool for weight loss for people with obesity but as a way to achieve better overall and metabolic health? Reply with your ideas! #ph2607203 #metabolichealth #haes
