My weight loss progress

9 de março de 2007

Vou viver de Diet Shake.

Juju me escandalizou com essa pérola: "homem que pesava meia tonelada vê a rua pela primeira vez em cinco anos".

Bizarro! Bizarro! Bizarro!
Como alguém consegue respirar com 540 quilos? O_O
Assustador.

Updating:
Matéria interessante sobre obesidade mórbida e um pouco mais sobre o caso do Manuel Uribe, o mexicano de meia tonelada. Em inglês:
Medical Mystery: Morbid Obesity.

Overeating is an addiction.

Marc Burd, Hebranko's therapist, has worked with addicts in prison.

"To me, the overeating is an addiction, and if you ask most of the patients. … The words or the symptoms that they describe when they get the cravings to eat is exactly the same thing you'll hear from any drug or alcohol [addict]," he said.

Comer compulsivamente certamente é igual o efeito do vício em drogas. Na hora da compulsão, só muita determinação para frear o impulso. Ou arrumar outro vício. Hahaha! Just kidding. ;)

A Genetic Mutation?

Scientists say the morbidly obese are radically different from the rest of us. A genetic mutation may be driving their appetites.

In one study, they narrowed the difference between fat mice and thin mice to a hormone in the brain called leptin. The mice without it were always hungry, always enormously fat. It's the "off switch" for eating. The fat mice didn't have it.

A new study in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that only 3 percent of the obese people in the study have the disturbed leptin gene.



E as causas da obesidade mórbida continuam um grande mistério.
