Increasing Prevalence of Obesity (BMI >30) among U.S. Adults

1991: Only four states had obesity

rates greater than 15 percent.

1996: Over half of the states

had obesity rates greater than

15 percent.

2001: Only one state had an obesity

rate below 15 percent, most had

obesity rates greater than 20 percent

and one had an obesity rate greater

than 25 percent.

u s data
U.S. Data
  • Obesity has risen 75% in 10 years.
  • Obesity has risen nearly 100% in 20 years.
  • Rates have doubled in children in 20 years.
  • Rates have tripled in teens in 20 years.
  • Self-reported data indicate that 61% of adults
  • are overweight or obese.
  • Data based on direct measurements indicate that two-thirds of adults are overweight or obese.
overweight children
Overweight Children
  • Children most likely to have a high BMI when:
    • Either parent or both overweight or obese
    • They live in smaller families
    • They are poor
    • They consume a high proportion of calories from fat
    • They are avid TV watchers – more screen time is associated with higher weight

evaluating weight health status
Evaluating Weight/Health Status
  • Compare weight to standard height-weight tables
    • Tables are of limited value and use
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
    • Preferred measure for evaluating weight
    • Based on significant amount of research
slide15
BMI
  • Upper end of BMI may not be a good indicator of health for:
    • body builder or serious athlete’s weight/health
    • the elderly
  • Low end of the BMI is an appropriate measure of being underweight for all
slide17
BMI
  • Calculating BMI – most use BMI calculators or charts (see page 341)

BMI = weight in pounds x 703

(height, inches)2

Weight, lbs = desired BMI x (height, inches)2

703

slide18
BMI
  • Calculating the weight associated with a desired BMI:

Weight, lbs = desired BMI x (height, inches)2

health risks and weight
Health Risks and Weight
  • Health risks in each category increase if:
    • Waist is > 40” men, > 35” women
    • Smoke
    • Physically inactive
    • High blood glucose
    • High LDL levels or low HDL levels
    • Family history of heart disease, stroke, hypertension, type II diabetes
body fat
Body Fat
  • Need enough body fat to meet basic needs, but not so much as to increase health risks
    • Essential Body Fat:
      • Males: 3% body fat
      • Females: 12% body fat, 20% for reproductive health (menstruation and fertility)
        • The latter value has recently come into question
body fat and health
% Body Fat and Health
  • Desirable % body fat levels: text values
    • Males: 8 - 24 %
    • Females: 21 – 33 %
measuring body fat
Measuring % Body Fat

% body fat is difficult to measure accurately

  • Common methods for measuring:
    • Fat fold measures with calipers
    • Bioelectric impedance
    • Underwater weighing
    • Air displacement
    • X-ray, MRI, CT and other expensive techniques
distribution of body fat matters
Distribution of Body Fat Matters
  • Central Obesity (apple shape)
    • Fat stored around the organs of the abdomen
    • Associated with increased risk of:
      • Heart disease
      • Stroke
      • Hypertension
      • Some cancers
distribution of body fat
Distribution of Body Fat
  • More on central obesity
    • More common in men and post-menopausal women
    • Associated with smoking
    • Abdominal fat is likely to go directly to the liver and be used to make VLDL  LDL
distribution of body fat1
Distribution of Body Fat
  • Lower-Body Obesity (pear shape)
    • Fat stores are concentrated around the hips and thighs
    • Doesn’t raise health risks as much as central obesity.
    • See most often in women during reproductive years
waist circumference
Waist Circumference
  • Health risks increase when waist circumference is:
    • Greater than 40” in men
    • Greater than 35” in women
  • Risk is even greater if BMI is also > 24.9
what are the health issues
What are the Health Issues?
  • Health issues associated with being overweight or obese:
    • Type II diabetes
    • Hypertension
    • High cholesterol
    • Heart disease
health issues
Health Issues
  • Health issues continued
    • Gall bladder disease
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Respiratory problems
    • Hernias
    • Varicose veins
    • Flat feet
    • Complications during surgery and pregnancy
health issues underweight
Health Issues - Underweight
  • Increased risk of infection and illness
  • Tired and weak (may be anemic)
  • Amenorrhea (periods stop)
  • Reduced fertility
  • Complications during surgery
  • Poor growth and development in kids
summary
Summary

Methods for Evaluating Weight/Health Status

  • Compare weight to standard tables (not useful)
  • Calculate BMI
  • Determine % body fat
  • Evaluate fat distribution
  • Measure waist circumference
  • Consider other risk factors
who should lose weight
Who should lose weight?
  • For people who are overweight or obese and have 2 or more risk factors weight loss is recommended
    • even a small weight loss (10% of body weight) will significantly decrease health risks
who should lose gain weight
Who should lose/gain weight?
  • Healthy BMI - maintain current weight.
  • Overweight, desirable waist measurement, less than 2 other risk factors  prevent further weight gain
  • Obese – lose weight
  • Individuals who are have a BMI of less than ______ should gain weight.
strategies for weight loss
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • In general need to decrease caloric intake and increase physical activity
    • Generally need both for long-term weight loss and health
  • To lose 1 pound per week you need to reduce caloric intake (or increase caloric output) by:
    • 500 kcal per day = 3500 kcal/week
strategies for weight loss1
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Set reasonable goals
    • 1-2 pounds per week
    • Loss of 10% of body weight
    • May set interim goals if a large amount of weight loss is desired
strategies for weight loss2
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Avoid fad diets and weight loss supplements
  • Avoid very low calorie diets and skipping meals
    • Never less than 1200 kcal per day
    • Why??
strategies for weight loss3
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Increase level of physical activity
    • 30-45 minutes moderate intensity, 5 days a week
    • Add weight bearing exercise to build muscle
      • Why?
strategies for weight loss4
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Reduce portion size
  • Increase intake of fiber (why?)
    • More fruits and veggies
    • More whole grain products
  • Eliminate empty calories
    • Soda, alcohol, candy…..
  • Decrease calories from liquid sources
strategies for weight loss5
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat a salad before dinner
    • Low calorie dressing
  • Buy/make fixed size portions
  • Avoid buffets and family style serving
  • Reduce fat content of foods w.o increasing portion size
strategies for weight loss6
Strategies for Weight Loss
  • Avoid starving all day…..leads to binging
  • Join a weight loss group
    • Provides support and accountability
    • Some offer nutritional guidance as well
extreme measures
Extreme Measures
  • Extreme weight loss measures may be called in cases of severe obesity (BMI >40)
    • When health issues of weight are greater than the health issues associated with the treatment
extreme measures1
Extreme Measures
  • Treatment is usually:
    • Surgery to drastically reduce stomach size and to bypass some of the SI
      • Long-term success depends upon compliance with dietary restrictions
      • Lifetime medical supervision is needed
      • At high risk of many vitamin and mineral deficiencies
    • Medications
weight gain
Weight Gain
  • Goal is to add lean body mass (as well as body fat if extremely underweight)
    • Exercise is an important component of weight gain
  • Weight gain can be just as challenging as weight loss!
strategies for weight gain
Strategies for Weight Gain
  • Chose energy dense foods
    • May be higher fat choices
    • Someone who is seriously underweight can afford a little more fat
    • Examples:
      • 2% milk vs. skim milk
      • Peanut butter on anything
      • Salmon vs. haddock
strategies for weight gain1
Strategies for Weight Gain
  • Eat regular meals
    • Do not call a “non-meal” a meal
    • Lettuce or carrots or an apple are not lunch
  • Leave salad for last
  • Increase portion size
    • Extra meat or cheese on sandwich
    • Larger bowl of cereal, add a banana
strategies for weight gain2
Strategies for Weight Gain
  • Snack between meals, but not too close to meals!
    • Chose nutritionally /calorie densesnacks
      • Peanut butter on apple or crackers
      • Bowl of cereal with milk
      • Trail mix (seeds, nuts, raisins….)
      • Slimfast or instant breakfast
  • Drink caloric beverages
    • Milk, juice …..
