How Obesity Affects The Heart

How Obesity Affects The Heart


Hello there, my name is CharlotteJessica and I am writing a report on obesity in America. If you feel comfortable with it, could you please tell me the following things (feel free to leave some out):

1. Would you consider yourself underweight, average, overweight, obese or super morbidly obese?
2. How old are you?
3. What is your BMI?
4. Do you have good, average or poor mobility?
5. Roughly how many calories do you eat on a daily basis?
6. Do weight issues run in the family?
7. Are there any medical complications such as heart disease or diabetes?
8. What are any other side affects you have experienced?

Thank you for completing this survey?

1. I consider myself to be average weight, though I’m a bit on the muscular side. (I’m stronger than the average man in squats, deadlift, and bench press, and I’m also 15-20 pounds lighter than the average man.)

2. I’m 25 years old.

3. My BMI is 25.2 which has me at “Overweight.” However, as an amateur bodybuilder, I know that percent body fat is king, and BMI is practically worthless.

4. Mobility as in what? My running speed? Hand movement speed? Swim speed? A rough average of all mobility, I would say I’m good or average. I’m not weighed down by fat.

5. Slimming down for a competition I eat 2000 calories per day. Bulking up for the winter anywhere from 2500-3100 calories per day.

6. Not really. I am healthier than most of them though.

7. I have asthma which as limited my jogging before. It’s not a huge deal, and I don’t recall it limited my weight lifting (3-5 times per week, usually 4).

8. I don’t recall any specific side effects, other than a bit of an ego sometimes

Scared Sick: The Role of Childhood Trauma in Adult Disease


The first years of human life are more important than we ever realized. In Scared Sick, Robin Karr-Morse connects psychology, neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, and genetics to demonstrate how chronic fear in infancy and early childhood— when we are most helpless—lies at the root of common diseases in adulthood. Compassionate and based on the latest research, Scared Sick will unvei…
