Mayo Clinic Weight Loss For Women Over 50

(bright music)
– My name is Lisa Coleman
and I’m in Monroe, Virginia.
Well I had my surgery over 12 years ago.
At my highest weight, I was 305 pounds.
My weight has been an issue for me
since I was a young girl,
but it became a real problem for me
after I moved off the farm
where I worked really hard.
And then my weight after
college just exponentially grew
until I got to a point of,
when at 28 years old,
I was over 305 pounds.
I exercised, I ate every
diet you can imagine,
the low fat, the high carb, the no fat,
everything you can
imagine, I’ve done it all.
And I could lose a portion of the weight,
but then I would get to this plateau
and I would just white-knuckle it.
I would try so hard.
If I had to walk up a flight
of stairs, I can do that,
but then I was so out of breath
and the embarrassment of catching someone
at the end of the stairs
was so embarrassing.
It was really cumbersome to do things
that other people just did so naturally,
like get off the floor.
My mom and dad gave us this
amazing trip to Mexico.
We ended up on this little plane.
The seats were metal
and you couldn’t move the
bars up in between them,
and because of my size I
couldn’t fit in the seat
without an incredible amount of pain.
And I said, “I will never
be in this situation again
“where everyone in the
plane can see how fat I am.”
I couldn’t even wear the seatbelt.
They had to get a seat extender.
It probably took me
around the year and a half
to two year mark before I
was really able to adjust
to this is my new life,
and maybe not miss the old life.
Imagine your biggest vice gone.
It is incredibly difficult.
The emotions that you
feel, that you go through,
you have no idea how
that changes your life,
and I had to learn to adapt to that,
and so it was a challenge.
I’ve turned to exercise.
We’re constantly trying
to come up with ideas
of what to do outside.
I love being outside
and love being active.
I’ve lost 115 pounds that I’ve kept off.
I’ve kept a very health weight,
and I’m very proud of that.
I love eating protein,
that’s just what you become used to,
and I’ll eat salad as well.
So I just kinda stick with protein
and trying to eat vegetables.
If you go into my pantry,
you’re gonna find like
high-protein granola bars,
you’re gonna find chips
that are made of like
popcorn that are baked,
and you’re just gonna
find healthy versions
so everybody can eat healthier.
It’s good for all of us.
My husband is actually
about 50 pounds less now
than before I had my surgery.
So we’ve actually lost weight
together through this process.
I can’t even imagine my
life without surgery,
what I would be like today.
Oh, I’m so thankful for the intervention
of surgery in my life.
Yeah, I don’t ever think
anymore about what I can’t do.
It’s always, “What can I do?
“What can I accomplish next?”

How To Get Rid Of Fat In Midsection

[CHANTING]
All: BULLSHIT!
BULLSHIT!
BULLSHIT!
OH-HO.
OH, YEAH.
PEOPLE ARE, UH,
PEOPLE ARE LOVIN’ THE SHOW.
THEY’RE LOVIN’ THE SHOW.
YOU KNOW,
YOU GUYS ARE SO FUNNY.
I LOVE THAT YOU’RE TAKIN’
A, UH, STRONG STAND ON THIS.
I LOVE YOU.
I KNOW THAT IN SEASON 2
WE SAID IF YOU’RE
A LITTLE OVERWEIGHT
YOU SHOULD JUST
STOP FUCKIN’ EATING,
AND THAT WAS–
THAT WAS WRONG.
WE WERE REALLY WRONG.
IT WAS JUST US
BLAMING THE VICTIM,
AND YOU SHOULD
NEVER BLAME THE VICTIM.
NEVER BLAME THE–
WE NEVER DO THAT.
OF COURSE
I UNDERSTAND YOUR POINT.
I UNDERSTAND YOUR POINT.
AND YOU’RE RIGHT
TO WANT TO KILL US.
TELL YOU WHAT–
CUT ME DOWN, I’LL HELP YOU
BURN THE SKINNY FUCK,
THEN WE’LL ALL GO GET PIES.
WE’LL ALL GO GET PIE,
COME ON.
COME ON, CUT ME DOWN.
THE OBESITY EPIDEMIC
IS BULLSHIT!
AAH!
Penn: THERE’S A HUGE
FUCKIN’ HEALTH SCARE
IN AMERICA TODAY.
WE’RE BEING TOLD
THAT OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY
HAVE REACHED
EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS.
OVERWEIGHT AND OBESITY
HAVE REACHED
EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS.
Penn: SEE?
THE GOVERNMENT,
THE MEDIA,
THE DRUG COMPANIES,
THE WEIGHT-LOSS INDUSTRY,
AND THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY
ARE ALL TRYING TO SCARE
THE LARD OUT OF OUR ASSES.
CHECK OUT THESE
FRIGHTENING HEADLINES.
AND IN A RELATED STORY…
TONIGHT WE’LL PRESENT
A SMORGASBORD OF PEOPLE
BEHIND THE HYSTERIA.
WE’LL CHEW THE FAT
WITH THESE FINE FOLKS
AT THE ANNUAL MEETING
OF THE OBESITY SOCIETY.
AND AS THE ICING ON THIS
CHOCOLATE FUDGE,
COCONUT-FILLED EPISODE,
WE’LL PUT ON THE GREATEST,
MOST SPECTACULAR
SPORTING EVENT
EVER PRODUCED.
IT’S THE PENN & TELLER:
BULLSHIT
FAT GUY OLYMPICS!
GET READY FOR THE THRILL
OF VICTORY
AND THE THRILL OF DEFEAT.
WE BEGIN OUR JOURNEY
IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
AT A CAPITAL AREA
GET TOGETHER
OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION TO
ADVANCE FAT ACCEPTANCE.
THE GOAL OF NAAFA
IS JUST TO MAKE
THINGS BETTER
FOR FAT PEOPLE.
TO GET THEM OUT
IN THE WORLD
AND–
AND SOCIALIZING.
ROXANNA STUSSY,
MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL
ASSOCIATION
FOR THE ADVANCEMENT
OF FAT ACCEPTANCE.
Penn: MAN, EVEN
THEIR ACRONYM IS FAT.
SO WE DO OUR PICNICS
LIKE THIS,
AND WE DO
MONTHLY DANCES
AND POOL PARTIES
AND JUST TRY
AND GET PEOPLE
OUT OF THEIR HOUSE
AND SOCIALIZING.
AND–AND OUT THERE
IN THE WORLD
INSTEAD OF HIDING
AT HOME.
Penn: HIDING?
THEY LOOK
AT LEAST MY SIZE,
AND I CAN’T HIDE ANYWHERE.
MELISSA WELBORN,
PROFESSIONAL NANNY.
THE MAJOR GOAL
FOR NAAFA WOULD BE JUST
TO SHOW SIZE ACCEPTANCE,
TO GET US OUT THERE,
TO SAY
THAT WE’RE NORMAL.
THE MEDIA REALLY
DOES SEND A MESSAGE
TO PEOPLE
THAT FAT IS BAD.
AND YOU
HAVE TO DIET,
YOU HAVE TO FIT
THAT SIZE 2 DRESS.
Penn: TO FIND OUT
WHO’S MAKIN’ A BUCK
OFF THE IDEA THAT HEFTY
IS A DEADLY EPIDEMIC,
WE WENT
TO THE OBESITY SOCIETY’S
2006 ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC
MEETING IN BOSTON.
I SEE, IT’S SKINNY FUCKS.
LET’S FIND SOMEONE IN CHARGE.
I’M THE DIRECTOR
OF EDUCATION PROGRAMS
FOR THE OBESITY SOCIETY.
I’M THE ONE
WHO’S RESPONSIBLE
FOR ENSURING COMPLIANCE
WITH THE ACCREDITATION
REQUIREMENTS
THAT ARE IMPOSED ON US.
Penn: WHAT’S
HE TALKIN’ ABOUT?
DO I SMELL PIE?
FOCUS, MAN, FOCUS, OK.
UH, WHY SHOULD WE
BE PANICKED ABOUT OBESITY?
IT IS THE LEADING
PREVENTABLE
HEALTH PROBLEM
IN THE UNITED STATES.
IF YOU SIMPLY
CAN CONTROL YOUR INTAKE,
AND CONTROL
YOUR ENERGY EXPENDITURE,
YOU CAN CONTROL
YOUR WEIGHT.
Penn: IF IT
WERE THAT SIMPLE,
EVERYONE AT THIS CONVENTION
WOULD BE OUT OF WORK.
HEY, THERE’S A LOT MORE FOOD
AT THIS OBESITY CONFERENCE
THAN YOU MIGHT GUESS.
THERE’S A SHAKE…
THERE YOU HAVE IT.
SMOOTHIE,
CANDY-ISH BARS.
THEY COME IN ALMOND
AND MINT.
Penn: LOOK AT ALL THIS FOOD.
I GUESS THEY THINK
EATING MAKES YOU THIN.
YOU CAGEY,
SCRAWNY BASTARDS,
THERE’S A LOT
OF SCARY CHARTS, TOO.
HERE’S SOMETHING
FROM THE CENTER
FOR DISEASE CONTROL.
I THINK THEY’RE THE GUYS
WHO SPRAYED MY SISTER’S HOUSE
WITH DEET.
HER CAT HAD SEIZURES
FOR, LIKE, A YEAR.
MAN, IT WAS FUNNY
AND AWFUL, TOO.
IT WAS AWFUL.
I CAME TO THIS CONFERENCE
BECAUSE
I’M VERY CONCERNED
ABOUT THE PROBLEM
OF OBESITY IN OUR SOCIETY.
WE’RE SEEING IT
CONTINUING TO GROW
WITH EVERY YEAR.
IT’S REACHING
EPIDEMIC PROPORTIONS,
Penn: OK, BUT YOU’RE
JUST ONE SKINNY BROAD.
BUT, YOU’VE GOT
THE SCARE WORD–
EPIDEMIC.
IT’S EITHER AN EPIDEMIC
OR A PANDEMIC OR
SOMETHING OF THAT NATURE
I WOULD THINK, YES.
AN OBESITY EPIDEMIC.
DEFINITION OF EPIDEMIC.
AN EPIDEMIC.
THE NUMBER ONE
HEALTH PROBLEM WE HAVE
IN THIS COUNTRY NOW.
WE SEE MANY
SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLEMS
ASSOCIATED WITH OBESITY.
CANCER, HEART DISEASE,
STROKE.
UH, ARTHRITIS,
UH, GALL BLADDER
DISEASE,
UH, HYPERLIPIDEMIA,
HYPERTENSION.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE,
DIABETES…
THE ASTHMA,
TYPE 2 DIABETES.
JOINT DISEASE, ARTHRITIS…
LOTS OF DIFFERENT
CANCERS HAVE BEEN
ASSOCIATED–
Penn: CANCER?!
JUST CRAB SLAP THE PIZZA
RIGHT OUT OF MY HANDS,
ASSHOLES.
WHOA, LOOK!
THERE’S SANTA CLAUS!
AND HE’S LOST,
LIKE, 100 POUNDS.
I’LL BET HE’S BEEN
EATIN’ A LOT OF THOSE
ALMOND CANDY-ISH BARS.
MY NAME IS BARRY POPKIN,
I’M A PROFESSOR
OF NUTRITION
AND DIRECTOR
OF THE INTERDISCIPLINARY
OBESITY CENTER
AT THE UNIVERSITY
OF NORTH CAROLINA,
CHAPEL HILL.
Penn: POPKIN?
SOUNDS LIKE A TASTY,
TINY PASTRY MADE BY ELVES.
IT’S THE PERFECT ALIAS
FOR SKINNY SANTA.
TODAY WE HAVE
1.3 BILLION,
APPROXIMATELY,
ADULTS AND CHILDREN
IN THE WORLD
OBESE AND OVERWEIGHT.
Penn: BY THE WAY,
MOST OF THAT 1.3 BILLION
ARE JUST A FEW POUNDS
OVERWEIGHT.
THEY’RE NOT READY
TO CO-HOST THE VIEW.
THE OBVIOUS
2 CAUSES OF OBESITY
ARE EATING TOO MUCH,
DRINKING CALORIC
BEVERAGES
THAT ARE VERY SWEET,
AND EATING
HIGH FAT FOOD,
AND NOT BEING
AS ACTIVE AS YOU WANT.
Penn: THAT’S 4,
PROFESSOR POPCORN.
I MEAN, POPKIN.
SO HOW FAT ARE WE GETTIN’?
Popkin: IN THE U.S.,
THE AVERAGE ADULT
IS GAINING
A HALF A POUND
TO 3 TO 4 POUNDS A YEAR.
AND THAT’S WHY
WE’RE OFFERING THIS
AMAZING NEW PRODUCT–
THE PENN & TELLER
WEIGHT-LOSS MIRROR.
LOOKING A LITTLE HEAVYISH
IN THAT NEW SUIT?
WE CAN FIX THAT. WATCH.
OH, NO, NO, OTHER WAY.
OTHER WAY, TELLER.
OTHER WAY, A LITTLE MORE
JOEY RAMONE.
OH, VERY NICE.
GOOD, GOOD, GOOD,
VERY NICE. OH!
[SIGHS]
OK, THAT’S GOOD.
Penn: MAINSTREAM MEDIA
LOVE WORDS LIKE EPIDEMIC.
BUT HERE’S A REAL
COLLEGE PROFESSOR
WHO’S CHOOSIER
ABOUT HIS LANGUAGE.
THE NOTION
OF AN EPIDEMIC
IS REALLY
COMPLETELY PHONY.
AND HAS
NO SCIENTIFIC BASIS.
PAUL CAMPOS,
PROFESSOR OF LAW,
UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO.
Penn: CAMPOS IS ALSO
THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK
THE OBESITY MYTH–
A SCATHING INDICTMENT OF
THE MEDICAL AND DIET INDUSTRY.
YOU KNOW HE’S CONFIDENT.
HE LET US TAPE HIM
EATING A BURRITO.
NO ONE LETS US
VIDEOTAPE THEM EATING.
HE IS SO COOL.
PINKY UP.
THE PHRASE
“OBESITY EPIDEMIC”
IS A VERY
MISLEADING PHRASE.
IT GIVES YOU
THE IMPRESSION
THAT THERE’S
SOME KIND OF A DISEASE
THAT’S CONTAGIOUSLY
SPREADING
ALL ACROSS AMERICA.
THIS IS NOT AN EPIDEMIC,
THIS IS JUST A SIGN,
REALLY, OF ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT.
THE MAIN FEATURES
OF THE OBESITY MYTH
ARE THE FOLLOWING:
THE FIRST IS THE CLAIM
THAT WEIGHT IS A GOOD
PROXY FOR HEALTH.
THAT IF YOU KNOW
SOMEBODY’S WEIGHT,
YOU KNOW A LOT
ABOUT THEIR HEALTH.
THAT’S ABOUT 97% FALSE.
Penn: PUT ANOTHER WAY,
YOU CAN’T TELL
WHAT’S GOING ON
WITH A PERSON’S ORGANS
JUST BY LOOKING AT THEM.
UNLESS IT’S ONE
OF THOSE SKINNY BITCHES
WHO ARE SO THIN
YOU CAN SEE THEIR KIDNEYS.
IS THERE MORE?
THE SECOND BIG PART
OF THE MYTH
IS THE NOTION
THAT IF YOU
TAKE A FAT PERSON
AND TURN THEM
INTO A THIN PERSON,
YOU’RE GOING
TO IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH.
Penn: CAMPOS IS RIGHT.
THESE ARE ACTUAL
PHOTOS OF TELLER
BEFORE AND AFTER
HIS CURRENT WORK OUT
AND DIET REGIMEN.
AS YOU CAN SEE,
EVEN THOUGH
TELLER HAS CLEARLY
LOST A LOT OF WEIGHT.
HE IS STILL UNNATURALLY RED.
OK, PROFESSOR, ANY MORE
TO THIS MYTH THING?
AND DO WE HAVE TIME
TO GET A COUPLE OF THOSE–
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT!
WE’RE GOIN’? FUCK!
Campos: ALL
OF THIS RHETORIC
ABOUT OUR
OBESITY EPIDEMIC
IS BASED ON THE NOTION
THAT WE ACTUALLY KNOW
HOW TO PRODUCE
SIGNIFICANT LONG-TERM
WEIGHT LOSS
IN POPULATIONS.
WE DO NOT KNOW.
WE DON’T KNOW
HOW TO DO IT.
Penn: YEP, THAT’S RIGHT.
THAT’S WHY THERE ARE
SO MANY DIFFERENT DIETS,
PROGRAMS, AND BOOKS
TO LOSE WEIGHT.
HIGH CARB, LOW CARB,
MEDIUM CARB, LOW FAT,
ALL FAT, ALL COOKIES,
JENNY CRAIG,
JENNY’S SISTER PHYLLIS,
HIGH FIBER,
LOW EXPECTATIONS,
WEIGHT WATCHERS,
THE ZONE, ATKINS,
SOUTH BEACH, NORTH BEACH,
EAST BEACH, WEST BEACH,
DR. PHIL–
FUCK, I HATE DR. PHIL–
ET CETERA, ET CETERA,
ET CETERA.
THERE ARE MORE DIETS
IN AMERICA
THAN FINGERS
IN PARIS HILTON’S PIE.
SO, PROFESSOR POP-TART-KIN,
IS THERE SOME KIND
OF STANDARDIZED FORMULA
USED TO MEASURE OBESITY?
UM, FOR MEASURING PEOPLE
IN A LARGE POPULATION
SENSE,
WE USE SOMETHING CALLED
THE BODY MASS INDEX.
Penn: THE BODY MASS INDEX,
OR B.M.I.,
IS A RATIO OF THE BODY’S WEIGHT
TO ITS HEIGHT.
IT’S THE OFFICIAL FORMULA
USED BY THE GOVERNMENT
TO DETERMINE OBESITY,
AND THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY
TO DETERMINE THE COST
OF YOUR HEALTH PREMIUMS.
HEY, LOOK, A NEW GUY.
YOU GOT SOMETHIN’
YOU WANNA SAY, NEW GUY?
ERIC OLIVER, PROFESSOR
OF POLITICAL SCIENCE
AT THE UNIVERSITY
OF CHICAGO.
THE PROBLEM
WITH THE GOVERNMENT
USING B.M.I.
AS A BAROMETER
OF HEALTH,
IT BASICALLY IS SAYING
THAT IF YOU WEIGH
A CERTAIN AMOUNT
RELATIVE TO YOUR HEIGHT,
YOU CAN TELL
HOW HEALTHY YOU ARE.
Penn: TURNS OUT
THE B.M.I. WAS INVENTED
BY A 19th CENTURY
BELGIAN MATHEMATICIAN
TRYING TO TIE
19th CENTURY BODY STATISTICS
TO 19th CENTURY SOCIOLOGY.
IT WASN’T EVEN MEANT
TO TELL BELGIANS IN 1840
WHAT THEY
WERE SUPPOSED TO WEIGH,
LET ALONE TELL
21st CENTURY INDIVIDUALS
WHETHER THEY’RE IN SHAPE.
IF YOU CALCULATE BY B.M.I.s
HEIGHT/WEIGHT FORMULA,
BRAD PITT AND MICHAEL JORDAN
ARE OVERWEIGHT.
AND RUSSELL CROWE
AND GEORGE CLOONEY
ARE OBESE.
THIS GUY HAS THE SAME
B.M.I. AS I DO.
WE CHECKED,
AND AT 6 FEET, 6 INCHES
AND 320 POUNDS,
I’M PINNIN’ THE NEEDLES.
THE CHART SAYS
I’M AT RISK
FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
AND SLEEP APNEA
AND ALL THE SHIT
I’VE ACTUALLY GOT.
I NEED TO GET TO 124 POUNDS
AND 5 FOOT, 4 INCHES.
[MOTOR REVVING]
HEY, HEY, HEY, HEY,
HEY, HEY, HEY!
HEY, HEY, HEY!
ARE YOU CRAZY?
ARE YOU FUCKIN’ CRAZY?
MEASURE TWICE,
CUT ONCE.
ANOTHER PROBLEM
WITH THE GOVERNMENT
USING B.M.I.
AS A BAROMETER
OF HEALTH
FOR THE POPULATION,
IS THAT IT BASICALLY
SAYS THAT EVERYONE NEEDS
TO BE A CERTAIN WEIGHT–
OR WITHIN A CERTAIN
HEIGHT RANGE–
IN ORDER TO BE HEALTHY.
Penn: SO, LIKE MOST VARIATIONS
IN INDIVIDUALS,
HEIGHT, HAIRSTYLE,
COCK SIZE,
PEOPLE’S WEIGHTS,
RELATIVE TO THEIR HEALTH,
ARE GONNA FALL
ON SOME KIND OF CONTINUUM.
FOR SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE
NATURALLY THIN,
BEING THIN IS
A GOOD WEIGHT.
FOR SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE
NATURALLY HEAVY,
BEING HEAVY
IS A GOOD WEIGHT.
Penn: PROFESSOR CAMPOS,
IS THERE EVER A SITUATION
WHERE A FAT PERSON
IS HEALTHIER
THAN A SKINNY PERSON?
THE NOTION
THAT OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE
ARE HEALTHIER
THAN SO-CALLED
NORMAL WEIGHT PEOPLE,
IS ACTUALLY CONFIRMED
BY MANY, MANY STUDIES.
Penn: THAT’S WHY WE’RE STAGING
THE PENN & TELLER
2007 FAT GUY OLYMPICS!
HERE AT HISTORIC
HOLLYWOOD HIGH.
WHERE, IF YOU STAND
ON TIPPY-TIPPY TOES,
YOU CAN
SEE THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN,
AND LIKE EVERY
OLYMPIC GAMES,
OURS BEGAN WITH
A SPECTAC–OH, FUCK IT.
NO MATTER HOW MANY
VIDEO TRICKS WE USE,
IT’S STILL
A LAME OPENING CEREMONY.
BUT WE’VE GATHERED
THE MOST ELITE ATHLETES
FROM BURRITO
AND HOT DOG STANDS
ACROSS HOLLYWOOD
TO TEST THIS FAT
VERSUS SKINNY THEORY.
WE’LL USE COOL,
SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVITY
LACED WITH A LIBERAL PORTION
OF MAN-TITS.
I’M TELLIN’ YA–
IT’S CRAZY OUT HERE,
CRAZY!
IT’S SO CRAZY,
WE CAN’T CONTAIN THE FANS.
[CRICKETS CHIRPING]
SEE? THEY ALL LEFT.
AND NOW, LET’S
MEET TODAY’S GLADIATORS.
IN THE RED JERSEY,
FAT GUY ANDRE!
I’M IN SHAPE
IF YOU CONSIDER
ROUND A SHAPE.
Penn: IN THE ORANGE JERSEY,
FAT GUY DAVID.
I’M GONNA KICK
ALL THEIR ASSES.
[CHUCKLING]
Penn: IN THE BLUE JERSEY,
FAT GUY DAN.
I’M WORRIED ABOUT,
YOU KNOW, LAYING
ON THE FLOOR,
PANTING LIKE A TIRED DOG.
HOWEVER, I’M NOT WORRIED
ABOUT INJURING MYSELF
PERMANENTLY, THOUGH.
Penn: IN THE TAN JERSEY,
FAT GUY OZZIE.
I SEE MYSELF
AS A FAT ASS.
I’M CHUNKY, I CAN BARELY
SEE MY PENIS.
Penn: IN THE GREEN JERSEY,
FIT GUY NICK DeLUCA.
IF I CAN KICK THESE
GUYS’ ASS ON THE FIELD,
THAT’LL DEFINITELY
WIN POINTS
WITH MY GIRLFRIEND.
Penn: COME TO THINK OF IT,
GYM RAT NICK
IS THE ONLY CONTESTANT
WHO HAS A GIRLFRIEND HERE,
HEH…
BUT YOU’RE
PROBABLY WONDERING,
“WHAT’S A NORMAL WEIGHT GUY
DOING IN THE FAT GUY OLYMPICS
ANYWAY?”
WELL, THE ANSWER IS–
HE’S OUR SCIENTIFIC CONTROL.
COOL, HUH?
THERE WILL BE 3 EVENTS–
THE 50 METER HURDLES,
THE LONG JUMP,
AND A 400 METER RUN.
AND BECAUSE OF THIS
HIGH LEVEL OF COMPETITION,
DEATH IS A CONSTANT DANGER.
WE HIRED THIS NURSE.
SHE DIDN’T WANT TO WEAR
THE OFFICIAL NURSE OUTFIT
WE HAD FOR HER–
THE ONE WITH THE…
WHITE STOCKINGS AND
THE LITTLE RED CROSS ON HER HAT.
TO HELP US OFFICIATE,
WE GOT FORMER OLYMPIC
POLE VAULTER MIKE TULLY,
WHO WON THE SILVER MEDAL
AT THE 1984 GAMES.
ALL RIGHT, GUYS,
YOU READY FOR THE WEIGH-IN?
Penn: UP FIRST,
MIKE WEIGHED EVERYONE IN.
AND SURE ENOUGH,
ALL OF OUR COMPETITORS
ARE CONSIDERED,
BY THE B.M.I., OBESE.
YOU’RE OBESE.
EXCEPT MR. IN-SHAPE.
HE’S LOOKIN’ LIKE
HE’S ABOUT 184.
WHO, SURPRISINGLY
COMES IN JUST
ON THE BORDER
OF OVERWEIGHT.
25.
NICE WORK, 19th CENTURY
NOT-QUITE DUTCH
AND NOT-EVEN-QUITE FRENCH,
MATHEMATICIAN ASSHOLE.
NOW, BY THE POWER VESTED
IN ME BY THE STATE OF…
CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN,
I PROCLAIM–
LET THE GAMES BE OPEN.
[BLOWS WHISTLE]
[ALL GRUNT]
Penn: FIRST UP–
THE 50 METER HURDLES.
ON YOUR MARKS,
GET SET,
GO.
[AIR HORN BLOWS]
Penn: WE DIVIDED
THE 4 FAT GUYS INTO 2 HEATS.
THE GUY WITH THE BEST TIME
WOULD GO HEAD-TO-HEAD
AGAINST SKINNY,
BUT ALMOST OVERWEIGHT, NICK
IN THE FINALS.
SO, WITH DAVID’S WIN
IN THE FIRST HEAT IN 12 SECONDS,
IT WAS TIME
FOR HEAT NUMBER 2.
[AIR HORN BLOWS]
Man: GO, DAN!
[INDISTINCT]
GO, DAN!
GO ALL THE WAY!
Second Man: COME ON, OZZIE!
YOU CAN DO IT!
Penn: OH, GODDAMN IT, DAN,
YOU COST ME 50 BUCKS.
YEAH!
OZZIE MAY HAVE
WON THAT HEAT.
BUT HE MISSED DAVID’S TIME
BY 2 SECONDS.
SO THAT MEANS
IT’S FAT DAVID
VERSUS “LOOKS SKINNY
TO ME” NICK
IN THE HURDLE FINALS.
ON YOUR MARK,
GET SET,
[AIR HORN BLOWS]
Penn: SO WHAT DOES
FAT GUY DAVID’S WIN
OVER COMPARATIVELY
SKINNY GUY NICK MEAN?
NOT SURE. IT’S ONLY
THE END OF THE FIRST EVENT.
WE’LL COME BACK
IN JUST A BIT.
AND WHEN WE DO,
WE’LL HAVE THE LONG JUMP
AND AN INJURY UPDATE.
[SIREN]
CAN YOU GUESS WHO?
OUR NURSE?
ONE OF OUR JUGGLERS?
ONE OF OUR
FINELY TUNED ATHLETES?
BUT FIRST,
LET’S CHECK BACK
IN WITH PROFESSOR OLIVER.
THE BIGGEST WAY THAT
THE WEIGHT-LOSS INDUSTRY
HAS SPREAD THE IDEA
THAT OBESITY
IS THIS EPIDEMIC,
IS THROUGH
THESE ORGANIZATIONS
THAT ISSUE
THESE REPORTS,
AND ARE VERY CONCERNED
ABOUT THE STATE
OF HEALTH IN THE WORLD,
AND THE STATE OF HEALTH
IN THE UNITED STATES,
AND HOW WE MUST
COMBAT THIS DISEASE.
WHEN IN FACT, THEY’RE
REALLY ONLY FRONTS
FOR THE WEIGHT-LOSS
INDUSTRY.
YOUR FAMILY TREE
HAS LOTS OF VARIABLES.
BUT THERE ARE 2 THINGS
WE KNOW FOR SURE.
EVERY SINGLE ONE
OF YOUR ANCESTORS
FUCKED AND ATE
EVERYTHING IN SIGHT.
YOU’RE HERE BECAUSE
THEY WERE WIRED
TO BE OBESE
AND PROMISCUOUS.
NATURALLY YOUR D.N.A.
IS TELLING YOU
TO DO WHAT MADE
YOUR FAMILY A WINNER
IN ALL THE PAST GENERATIONS.
SURPRISINGLY FEW YEARS AGO,
IF YOU DIDN’T
WANT MORE KIDS,
YOU HAD TO TRY
TO STOP FUCKING.
THEN ALONG COMES SCIENCE
AND SUDDENLY–
NO MORE PROBLEM.
WITH SURGERY
OR CONTRACEPTIVES,
YOU COULD FUCK AS MUCH
AS YOUR MONKEY BRAIN WANTED
WITHOUT FINDING YOURSELF
UP TO YOUR NECK
IN LITTLE FUCKIN’ MONKEYS.
NOW WE’VE GOT
PLENTY OF FOOD
AND THE OBESITY SOCIETY
IS TELLING US
TO STOP EATING.
MAN, WE WERE WIRED TO EAT.
BUT IF WE DON’T
STOP EATING NOW,
WE’RE UP TO OUR NECKS
IN CHINS.
FUCK FEELING GUILTY.
THAT DOES NO GOOD.
IF YOU HAVE THE WILLPOWER
TO OVERCOME SEVERAL
MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION,
COOL, MORE
FOR THE REST OF US.
IF YOU CAN
STOP FUCKING, TOO?
COOL.
MORE FOR THE REST OF US.
THANKS.
HEY, LET’S GO BACK
TO THE CONFERENCE
AND LOOK AT ALL
THE DRUG-MAKERS
WHO SPONSOR THIS THING.
GLAXOSMITHKLINE,
A VERSION OF THEIR
DIET DRUG XENICAL
HAS BEEN F.D.A.
APPROVED AS THE FIRST
OVER THE COUNTER
DIET DRUG IN THE U.S.
MERCK, SANOFI, AND PFIZER
ALL HAVE POTENTIAL
BLOCKBUSTER DIET DRUGS
IN THEIR PIPELINE.
AND ABBOTT?
THEY MAKE MERIDIA.
IT GROSSED $72 MILLION
IN U.S. SALES DURING 2004.
THE MEDICAL RESEARCHERS
HAVEN’T FOUND
A PERFECT ANSWER YET.
BUT THEY WILL.
OF COURSE, ALONG THE WAY
THERE’VE BEEN
SOME SERIOUS MISTAKES.
THERE ARE EXAMPLES
OF WEIGHT-LOSS DRUGS
THAT PASSED
F.D.A. MUSTER, UH,
EVEN THOUGH THEY CARRIED
POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS,
AND ONE OF THEM
ACTUALLY ENDED UP
CAUSING VERY
SEVERE SIDE EFFECTS.
UH, THE FIRST WAS
WHAT WAS KNOWN
AS FEN-PHEN,
OR LATER KNOWN AS REDUX.
AND IT WAS LATER
SHOWN TO CAUSE
HEART VALVE DAMAGE.
AND PERHAPS THOUSANDS
OF PEOPLE DIED
FROM TAKING THIS,
EVEN THOUGH THEY THOUGHT
THEY WERE TAKING IT
AS A SIMPLE
WEIGHT-LOSS DRUG.
Penn: FUCK.
MEANWHILE, BACK
AT THE FAT GUY OLYMPICS,
OUR SECOND EVENT,
THE LONG JUMP,
IS ABOUT TO BEGIN.
BUT FIRST,
OUR INJURY REPORT.
IF YOU GUESSED THAT
NURSE VIRGINIA GOT TYPHOID,
WHAT THE FUCK
IS WRONG WITH YOU?
ARE YOU A TOTAL
FUCKIN’ IDIOT?
FUCKIN’ DAN HURT
HIS FUCKIN’ KNEE
JUMPIN’ THE FUCK
OVER THE FUCKIN’ HURDLES.
I’M GONNA HAVE TO FORFEIT
THE REST OF THE EVENTS.
[SIREN WAILING]
Penn: DESPITE DAN’S INJURY,
WE’VE ALL BEEN ASSURED
HE’LL BE ABLE TO STAND
OVER THE SINK
AND EAT AGAIN
IN JUST 6 TO 9 MONTHS.
OH, BY THE WAY,
THE AMBULANCE?
YEAH, HE WAS
JUST DRIVING BY.
SO IT’S TIME FOR THE OTHERS
TO TRY THE LONG JUMP.
YOU GUYS READY?
All: YEAH!
ALL RIGHT.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
HOLY WOLY!
YOU SEE
HOW FAR THAT IS?
10′ 6″.
Penn: I ONCE JUMPED 10′ 6″.
IT WAS ALL STRAIGHT DOWN.
IT WAS MORE OF A FALL, REALLY.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
NICE, THAT’S
A PRETTY GOOD JUMP.
THAT’S 11’5″.
TAKES THE LEAD.
11’5″ IS THE FARTHEST
RIGHT NOW, GUYS.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
OHH!
NICE.
YOU OK?
YES.
9 FEET ON THE MONEY.
Penn: NOW, WITH OUR
3 REMAINING FAT GUYS
HAVING COMPLETED
THEIR JUMPS,
HERE’S HOW
THE SCORING LOOKS.
ANYWAY, IN ORDER TO WIN,
ALL SKINNY NICK HAS TO DO
IS JUMP LONGER THAN 11’5″.
LET’S SEE HOW HE DOES.
[WHISTLE BLOWS]
WHOO!
OHH…
HIGH 5,
9 FEET ON THE MONEY.
Penn: 9 FEET?
BUT THAT TIES YOU WITH OZZIE
FOR THIRD PLACE.
BUT NICK’LL HAVE ONE MORE CHANCE
TO REDEEM HIMSELF
IN THE 400 METER RUN
LATER IN THE SHOW.
HEY, LET’S GO BACK
TO THE PICNIC
AND TAKE A LOOK
AT THE SOCIAL STIGMA
THAT HANGS AROUND
THE NECK OF THE OBESE
LIKE EXTRA CHINS.
YEAH, THERE’S
A TREMENDOUS BIAS
TOWARD FAT PEOPLE
IN THE–
IN THE BUSINESS WORLD
THESE DAYS.
Penn: I…THINK
SHE MEANS AGAINST.
I’VE HAD SOME RUDE COMMENTS
SUCH AS, YOU KNOW,
UH, OH, I CAN SAY,
“FAT ASS,” CAN’T I?
UH, FAT ASS, FAT BITCH,
I THINK A LOT
OF PEOPLE
THINK THAT
IT’S PERFECTLY FINE
TO DISCRIMINATE
AGAINST FAT PEOPLE
BECAUSE BEING FAT’S
SOMETHING
YOU CAN CONTROL.
SO UNLIKE
YOUR SKIN COLOR
OR YOUR GENDER
OR EVEN YOUR SEXUALITY,
UM, BEING FAT
IS SOMETHING
THAT SOMEONE SHOULD–
NOT ONLY CAN CONTROL–
BUT SOMEONE
SHOULD CONTROL.
Penn: IT’S NOT
JUST DISCRIMINATION,
THERE’S ALSO
MISCONCEPTIONS.
THE MISCONCEPTION
IS THAT WE’RE FAT,
WE’RE LAZY,
WE’RE STUPID.
Penn: ON THE UP SIDE,
FAT PEOPLE MAKE GREAT CHEFS,
GREAT BOND VILLAINS,
AND GET ALL THE STUPID
HUSBAND ROLES IN SITCOMS.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
I WOULD WANT PEOPLE
TO KNOW IS THAT
YOU CAN’T ALWAYS CHANGE
THE SIZE OF YOUR BODY.
SOME PEOPLE
ARE BORN TO BE FAT
AND AS MUCH
AS THEY FIGHT IT,
IT’S NEVER
GOING TO CHANGE.
THE WEIGHT-LOSS INDUSTRY
HAS A VESTED INTEREST
IN MAKING SURE FAT PEOPLE
WANT TO GET SLIM.
GLENN GAESSER–
DIRECTOR OF KINESIOLOGY,
UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA,
AUTHOR OF BIG FAT LIES.
Penn: WE THINK BIG FAT LIES
IS A BIG, FAT BOOK
ABOUT THE BIG, FAT LIES
TOLD BY THOSE
BIG, FAT, SKINNY
OBESITY EXPERTS.
WE DIDN’T ACTUALLY READ IT
BECAUSE WE’RE
BIG, FAT, LAZY BASTARDS.
THE FACT THAT
MOST DIETS DON’T WORK
IS ABSOLUTELY
PERFECT NEWS
FOR THE WEIGHT-LOSS
INDUSTRY.
BECAUSE THEY CAN
BLAME THE VICTIM.
THEY CAN SAY,
IT’S NOT OUR FAULT.
THE PRODUCT WORKS.
IF YOU JUST WOULD’VE
STAYED–STAYED WITH IT.
Penn: IN FACT,
EVEN DIETING ITSELF
CAN HAVE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.
IT’S FAR MORE DANGEROUS
TO ONE’S HEALTH
TO BE CHRONICALLY
YO-YOING
UP AND DOWN IN WEIGHT,
ON ONE DIET
AFTER ANOTHER,
THAN IT WOULD BE
TO BE A STABLE WEIGHT,
EVEN IF THAT HAPPENS
TO BE HEAVIER
THAN WHAT THE CHARTS SAY
YOU SHOULD WEIGH.
Penn: AND THERE’S
ONE MORE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW.
FAT PEOPLE
WHO EXERCISE REGULARLY
ARE BETTER OFF
HEALTH-WISE
AND HAVE
LOWER MORTALITY RATES
THAN THIN PEOPLE
WHO DON’T.
AND IN THE END,
THE MORTALITY RATE
FOR EVERYONE
IS ALMOST EXACTLY 100%.
500 YEARS AGO,
THE PLAGUE WAS BLAMED
ON THE WRATH OF GOD.
IT WASN’T UNTIL–
IT WASN’T UNTIL 1847
THAT SOME HUNGARIAN
NUT-DOCTOR IN VIENNA
SUGGESTED DOCTORS
WASH THEIR HANDS
BEFORE DELIVERING
A BABY.
AS LATE AS
THE 19th CENTURY,
CUTTING SOMEONE OPEN
AND SUCKING OUT HALF
OF THEIR BLOOD
WAS A STANDARD
MEDICAL PRACTICE.
25 YEARS AGO,
A COUPLE OF
AUSTRALIAN DOCTORS
DEMONSTRATED THAT
ALMOST ALL PEPTIC ULCERS
WERE NOT CAUSED BY
STRESS,
BUT BY A BACTERIA.
SOME RECENT STUDIES
SUGGEST–
SUGGEST THAT OBESITY
MIGHT ALSO BE CAUSED
BY A BACTERIA.
WE DON’T KNOW FOR SURE
YET THOUGH.
YOU KNOW,
OUR PAL MARVIN MINSKY
WHO PIONEERED
ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
AT M.I.T. SAYS…
BETTER IDEAS, FUCK.
YEAH, AND YOU CAN BET
YOUR FAT ASS
WHAT WE’RE DOING TODAY
IS GONNA LOOK
INCREDIBLY STUPID
IN 30 YEARS.

HE WAS OUR BRONZE MEDALIST.
AS MIKE HANDS OUT
THE BULLSHIT MEDALS,
LET’S CONSIDER
THE POINT OF ALL THIS–
OTHER THAN WANTING TO SEE
FAT GUYS RUN IN SLOW-MOTION.
HEY, THAT GIVES ME AN IDEA
FOR A SPIN-OFF OF DEXTER.
ANYWAY, IS ANY
OF THIS SCIENTIFIC?
NOPE.
CAN YOU TELL HOW FIT

NOPE.

FUCK, YEAH.
GOLD MEDALIST IS DAVID.

FAT GUY OLYMPICS
COME TO AN END,
LEAVING INDELIBLE MEMORIES
IN OUR MINDS.
HEY! WHO WANTS PIE?
[INDISTINCT CHATTER]
SKINNY PEOPLE ARE
DAMNED PHOTOGENIC.
LOOK AT THIS GUY.
PROBABLY A VERSACE MODEL
OR A LEAD SINGER
FOR A BAND, RIGHT?
NOT EXACTLY.
HE’S A COTTON SHARECROPPER
IN SOUTH CAROLINA
DURING THE GREAT DEPRESSION.
HE’S SKINNY
BECAUSE HE’S FUCKING STARVING.
WHAT LOOKS COOL IN PICTURES
MAY NOT BE COOL IN REAL LIFE.
LOOK AT US.
NO DEPRESSION FARMER
CHEEKBONES HERE.
BUT WE’RE WAY HAPPY.
WE DO WHAT WE CAN
TO BE AS HEALTHY AS WE CAN,
AND WE DON’T FEEL GUILTY
OVER THE RESULTS.
IF THE DEADLY SINS
OF GLUTTONY AND LUST
WEREN’T IN OUR GENETIC CODE,
WE’D NEVER HAVE MADE IT
THIS FAR.
LUST CAN BE GOOD EXERCISE,
AND IT’LL MAKE YOU HUNGRY
FOR MORE PIE.
SCIENCE HAS A WAYS TO GO
BEFORE THE TECHNOLOGY OF EATING
CATCHES UP WITH SEX.
THE DIET AND DRUG PEOPLE
ON THIS SHOW
HAVEN’T GOT AN ANSWER YET,
BUT MAN, WHEN THEY DO,
PIZZA PARTY AT THE SLAMMER.

Lose Weight On Slim

I, right now, am enjoying a nice cup of warm black tea.
Cheers!
It’s lovely. I enjoy tea almost everyday, but now
everyone is looking for a quick-fix to lose weight
from trendy diets to supplements.
Now they’re drinking detox teas.
I don’t want to get into all of that just yet,
but how about this: one woman’s diet made her
gain a lot more than she expected.
She put on some weight.
(audience laughs)
You want to know how?
She says her detox tea made her birth control ineffective
so she became pregnant!
So, she was on a 14-day tea-tox from a popular brand.
Several weeks later,
she noticed she wasn’t feeling like herself,
discovered she was pregnant
despite the fact she had being on birth control for years.
She talked to her doctor, and again they determined that
the detox teas were likely to blame because,
apparently a lot of these tea-toxes,
they have laxatives in the them and other things.
So, the birth control wasn’t being absorbed properly.
Have you seen this before?
I have not seen this particular case.
First of all, ladies you can close your mouths now.
They have some people who have done some detox teas
and they’re like, oh my god.
But, I mean, this is, it is definitely possible
because a lot of these detox teas
will contain herbal laxatives.
So it makes sense, right?
If you have, in this particular tea, they have things like
fennel seeds, and nettle leaves, and yerba mate.
And as a result, she got diarrhea.
And if you have diarrhea, or you have vomiting
within a few hours of taking your birth control pill,
then your body won’t have time to absorb the hormones
and as a result, they’re not going to be effective
and you may end up pregnant.
Let’s talk about safe effective weight loss here.
A lot of these tea-toxes, or these detox teas,
are promoted on social media a lot of times by celebrities.
There are healthy ways to lose weight, and unhealthy ways
to lose weight.
This whole detox tea phenomena concerns me
because there are these herbs and other things
theoretically in there that
you don’t even know what they are.
And there are potential side effects,
and I’ll just add one thing and it’s in your wheelhouse.
But, you know, pregnancy is, you could say she got pregnant.
But, pregnancy really is, in an ideal world,
something you’re thinking about, planning for,
making sure that you’re taking prenatal vitamins,
that you’re, you know, it’s not one of those things
where you want at seven weeks, eight weeks later,
oh crap I was on the tea-tox and now I’m pregnant.
You know?
Right.
Because you also, that’s not a great time to get pregnant
if you’re on this,
if you’re taking these detox teas
Herbal supplements
With all these things in it, you don’t even know if they,
maybe they’re bad for baby, too.
And if you get pregnant, you don’t know it,
and you’re on the, I don’t know.
It’s just, I have a real problem that these are promoted
in the way that they are by certain people on social media
like, oh hey, here’s my tea-tox. And it…
Yeah, but I mean, of course,
if you had some herbal tea
and you happened to get pregnant,
then, you know, you can proceed with the pregnancy.
But we’re just saying in an ideal world, you would
Of course continue the,
Yeah, yeah.
Herbal teas, if you know the herbs, that’s fine.
My issue is a lot of these teas, they don’t even tell you
what’s in there. It’s just, there’s like laxatives
there’s all this stuff…
Well you could combine the laxative with the diuretic
then you’re really
Looking at dehydrated
Well yeah, looking at dehydration.
Which, you know, it’s like running your car without any oil.
You need that. You need that.
Yep. So we’re not saying that
you can’t include tea as a part of your daily, uh, regimine.
It’s don’t drink things
if you don’t know exactly what’s in it.

Lose 10 Pounds In 3 Weeks Diet

Hafa Adai everybody. Hope you’re doing
great.
Today’s dessert is from my childhood on
Guam, the ever-popular green fruit salad.
It’s creamy, crunchy, and just sweet
enough. You’ll need fruit cocktail with
cherries, mandarin oranges, pineapple
tidbits, toasted walnuts, sweetened
coconut, mini marshmallows, full fat sour
cream, green food coloring is optional,
and full fat cream cheese. All
measurements are in the printable recipe
linked above and below. This is 4 ounces
or 113 grams of room temp cream cheese.
It’s soft, but not soft enough so
microwave for 5 seconds, scraping it
around. It’s still not as soft as we need
it so pop it back in the microwave for a
couple more bursts of three seconds.
There you go. It’s a bit warm and
spreadable. If your cream cheese is too
cold the coloring will not disperse and
you’ll have chunks of white pieces. Beat
well to fluff up.
Add 1 teaspoon of food coloring. Beat again
then add 1/3 cup or 75 grams of sour
cream. A generous third cup is great. Beat
and incorporate very well with the
rubber spatula. Add 8 ounces or227
grams of Cool Whip.
That’s so pretty.
Drizzle in a 1/2 teaspoon more coloring
if you want it darker.
Add 30 ounces or 850 grams fruit
cocktail, 15 ounces or 425 grams mandarin
oranges, 8 ounces or 2 27 grams pineapple,
3/4 cups or 95 grams walnuts, 1 and 1/2
cups or 75 grams marshmallows, and 1/2
cup or 50 grams of coconut. Gently fold
with the spatula. Nice! Serve and top with
more marshmallows, walnuts, and coconut.
YUM! It’s a little sweet and very creamy.
Hold up! A fruit sundae is even dreamier.
Scoop into pretty glassware. Top with
Nutella and whipped topping.
Add a cherry. OMG y’all. That was so good.
These are Guam cherries, or mansanitas.
That’s my bestie on the far right. Hi Mel!

Weight Loss Calculator For Women Over 30

Essential oils have been used in aromatherapy
to improve moods and health.
But did you know it has so many benefits
that you can add them directly
in your DIY skin care routine?
We’ve come up with some super amazing DIYs
to relieve some common skincare concerns.
Lavender essential oil is one of the most soothing scents
experienced by a person
and so has always been popular amongst essential oil users.
One simple way you too can add this aromatic fragrance
to your skin care routine
is by adding a few drops of it to your daily moisturiser.
Rub it in between your fingers and apply.
This helps get rid of dry patches
by gently moisturising the skin
and reduces the appearance of wrinkles on your face.
Take a cotton pad
and add a few drops of lavender essential oil
and dab it over your pimples and acne.
Enriched with anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties,
this essential oil fights acne causing bacteria.
And so this oil is a superstar for your skin.
Tea tree oil is known to have many healing benefits
which is why it’s becoming a very popular ingredient
in the skincare industry.
So if you have very oily or acne-prone skin,
just use this DIY.
Take 3 tsp of a carrier oil of your choice,
preferably coconut or olive oil
and add a few drops of tea tree essential oil to it.
Apply the mix all over your face
and massage gently.
Now, cover your face with a fresh warm cloth
and leave it on for about 10 minutes.
If you have inflamed skin after waxing
or shaving or have an ingrown hair problem,
you can make this soothing DIY.
Take some fresh aloe vera or aloe vera gel
and add a few drops of tea tree oil to it.
Mix well and then apply it on the affected areas.
This not only calms your skin
but also keeps it hydrated.
A great skincare routine is about more than just your face,
feet care is essential too.
So, when you have extremely dry and itchy feet,
quickly whip up this mask to pamper them.
Take 2 cups of sugar
and add ½ cup of grapeseed oil
and 10-12 drops of peppermint essential oil.
Mix well and start exfoliating.
Sugar acts as a good exfoliant
while the fatty acids present in grapeseed oil
promote moisture retention of the skin
and tighten it
Peppermint essential oil relaxes tense muscles of the feet.
Wash off and then moisturise your skin.
Follow this routine twice every week for best results.
On days when you run out of your makeup remover,
you can make one with some simple ingredients
from your beauty cabinet.
All you need is water in a jar,
1 tbsp baby shampoo,
1 tbsp baby oil,
and a few drops of frankincense oil
and mix well.
This essential oil is generally used cosmetically
to clear out skin discolouration
and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Take another jar and put the cotton pads in
and pour the premade mixture over the pads
to soak them in the formulation.
You can pour the excess mixture back
into another jar or choose to leave it in.
Your at-home makeup remover is ready.
Just take a cotton pad
and start using it to remove your makeup.
These wipes are great for everyday use
and even work on stubborn makeup.
Now we’ve seen the benefits of essential oils on our skin,
but did you know they can help whiten nails
and soften hands too?
Take 1 tsp salt,
add 1 tsp sugar,
2 tsp baking soda,
2 tsp olive oil,
and a few drops of orange essential oil too.
You can add a drop of food colouring if you like.
Mix the ingredients well
and place it in a silicone mould to set.
While salt and sugar are exfoliators,
baking soda softens hands
and is a binding agent for the manicure bomb.
Orange essential oil on the other hand
acts as a disinfectant for our hands
and olive oil keeps the hands moisturised.
Once the manicure bomb is set,
take a piece and put it in a bowl of water.
Now soak your hands in it for about 15 minutes
and voila!
So now that you know the different ways
to incorporate some of these popular
essential oils into your skin care routine,
these natural recipes will definitely keep it healthy and glowing.
Until next time, stay tuned and stay Glamrs.

Lose 20 Pounds Safely

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting
every day since 2012 and in this video
I’m gonna show you 5 reasons why you
should fast every single day what’s
going on guys
Carlo Macapinlac here from
NewbieFitnessAcademy.com. I help busy
professionals lose weight so they can
feel more confident fit better into
their clothes and get the most out of
their lives if you’re new to the channel
make sure you hit that subscribe button
and hit the bell to get notified every
time I post a new video every week
alright let’s get into it the first
reason why you should fast every day is
that it changes your relationship with
food completely and I wanted to start
with this because this is extremely
important if you’re trying to lose
weight because we are all creatures of
habits a lot of things that we do on a
daily basis is honestly just based out
of habits and that includes eating that
includes eating at certain times and
breakfast is the perfect example of this
we’ve basically been taught since we
were kids that breakfast is the most
important meal of the day and there’s nothing inherently
wrong with eating breakfast by the way
it really depends what you eat if you
eat bacon and eggs and some avocado for
example that sounds like a really good
breakfast on the other hand if you just
shove cornflakes instant oatmeal a
protein bar or granola bar and wash that
down with a glass of orange juice then
that’s a completely different story like
we are the only species that does those
things that shoves cornflakes down our
throats first thing in the morning even
if we’re not hungry like paleo man
didn’t do that paleo man didn’t wake up
first thing in the morning and say oh
geez better eat breakfast. No. Sometimes
our Paleolithic ancestors would go days
without food and they were perfectly
fine like lions don’t wake up first
thing in the morning and say oh I should
probably eat breakfast no again
scheduled meals are completely made up
and we live in a society where we use
food as a form of entertainment we also
live in a very interesting time now
where there are actually more obese
people than there are hungry people we
don’t have a hunger problem these days
we have an obesity epidemic and once you
start intermittent fasting and you do it
every day you take back some of that
control over food because now you are
introducing a system of control you’re
putting a cap on when you’re eating
and it’s not just a free-for-all
all day and I always say that what you
eat
and when you eat are equally as
important if you’re trying to lose
weight and stay healthy the problem is a
lot of people that are trying to lose
weight only focus on the what you eat
part of the equation they’re stuck
on the calories in versus calories out
model of weight loss you know eat less
and move more and that’s what makes
intermittent fasting so powerful when it
comes to weight loss is even if you
don’t change what you eat and you should
but then you reduce your eating window
to just an eight-hour eating window for
example I guarantee you you’re gonna
lose weight and once you start seeing
results that creates a positive feedback
loop you start making better decisions
overall and you start having a better
relationship with food you’re not a
slave to it anymore
number two you should fast every day
because it triggers a compounding effect
intermittent fasting carries a lot of
health benefits like improved heart
health
it boosts your brain it increases your
energy it increases your metabolism it
improves your insulin sensitivity and
that’s key it builds your immune
function it increases growth hormones at
it builds lean muscle and so much more and
it makes you lose weight a lot of weight
you get all those benefits without
counting calories or following a
complicated meal plan amazing right and
there are multiple studies out there
where they put a control group and an
intermittent fasting group on a calorie
maintenance diet so neither of them lost
weight because again they’re eating at
maintenance calories yet the hormonal
elements are more positive with the
intermittent fasting group and they also
have improved insulin sensitivity so you
know that intermittent fasting has
positive elements regardless of weight
loss
long story short there is a net positive
physiological benefit when you fast and
why do I mention insulin specifically
well insulin is the hormone that
controls your body weight and now there
are multiple studies that it’s also the
hormone that controls aging studies now
show that one of the common features of
centenarians so these are people who
live over a hundred is that they’re all
very insulin sensitive and when you do
intermittent fasting every day every day
adds up to the compounding effect of all
the benefits I just mentioned and that
includes improving your insulin
sensitivity so the more you do it the
more benefit you get out of it and this
is the complete opposite of what’s
happening in the US and other countries
following a Western diet right like 70
percent of Americans are either over
weight or obese right a lot of these
people have diabetes pre-diabetes and
they have a high risk of developing
cardiovascular disease and even cancer
and all those diseases can be summed up
using one term it’s called metabolic
syndrome and the precursor to metabolic
syndrome is something called insulin
resistance which is the complete
opposite of insulin sensitivity and if
you ask me the choice becomes pretty
simple if the question is whether you
should fast every day reason number
three fasting every day triggers fat
adaptation faster being fat adapted or
being metabolically flexible is
something that everyone should be
striving for if they want to lose weight
and be healthy being fat adapted simply
means that you’re readily able to tap
into fat stores for energy and if you
have weight to lose that’s exactly what
you want and since the adaptation of the
first Dietary Guidelines for Americans
which came out in 1980 you know that
food pyramid where they recommend a
mind-blowing 6 to 11 servings from the
bread pasta rice and cereal group and if
you ask me that’s 6 to 11 servings too
many which is also around the same time
when the whole obesity epidemic started
following a high carb diet or the
standard American diet is literally the
definition of metabolic inflexibility
now when you start fasting every day and
then you pair that with a diet that
moderate your insulin levels like a
paleo diet or the ketogenic diet you’re
basically turbocharging that fat
adaptation process because your body
will just use up all that extra glycogen
during your fast and studies have now
shown that that process starts happening
when you do a 16-hour fast
that’s why I always say that the minimum
effective dose of fasting is a 16 hour
fast so when you do intermittent fasting
every day you’re getting your body more
and more used to being fat adapted and
achieve full genetic and hormone
optimization and I want you to think of
fasting like a muscle so the more you do
it the more you work out your muscles
the better you get at it the bigger it
gets but again let me remind you that
there’s about a two week
adaptation period here where you might
feel a little crummy and that’s
perfectly normal especially if you’ve
been eating a high carb diet all this
time you’re literally going through carb
and sugar withdrawal but the more you
fast the quicker you’ll be fat adapted
and the quicker you’ll be able to tap
into your fat stores for energy number
four it helps you retain muscle time and time
again whenever they do Studies on
intermittnet fasting they all show one thing
consistently that is the muscle
retention tends to be higher with the
intermittent fasting group versus a
calorie restriction group now just to be
clear the intermittent fasting group is also
in a calorie deficit but eaten in a
specific eating window while the calorie
restriction group just eats whenever they
probably graze on food all day you know
like six small meals and when the
results show up the intermittent fasting
group always shows that they’re better
at retaining muscle that’s because when
you fast you trigger a hormonal shift
you trigger a growth hormone response
and that growth hormone response is what
prevents your body from losing muscle
there’s actually study out there where
growth hormone levels can be as high as
2,000 percent from the baseline after a
24-hour fast and because you’re fat
adapted your body can easily utilize fat
for energy instead of breaking down
muscle this is also how your body keeps
your metabolic rate high because again
you have about a hundred thousand
calories worth of stored energy in the
form of body fat you just need to be
able to access it and intermittent
fasting gives you that access now when
you do a calorie restriction diet yes
you’ll lose weight but you also tend to
lose muscle mass because again you’re
not metabolically flexible so your body
instead does two nasty things to survive
number one is that it slows down your
metabolism this is why when you are in a
calorie deficit you’re always tired
you’re always hungry you have no energy
and you’re just completely miserable the
other thing that it does is because it’s
now in survival mode because your body
is only living off of whatever calorie
deficit number that you’re giving it
like let’s say you’re only eating 1200
calories you can only live off of those
1200 calories so to make up for the
difference your body starts breaking
down muscle for energy and your body
does this through a process called
gluconeogenesis you literally start
withering away and this is why the myth
about you losing muscle when you fast is
completely inaccurate you know what
makes you lose muscle? A calorie
restriction diet number five and this
might be the most important reason why
you should do intermittent fasting every
day is that it gives you diet
flexibility now some “experts” might
disagree with me on this but this is how
I’ve been able to
maintain my results since 2012 and this
is also how my clients achieve amazing
results here’s one of my clients one
full year after losing 80 pounds again
when you fast everyday it gives you diet
flexibility okay in a perfect world you
have 100% adherence to your diet you’re
eating single ingredient mostly
unprocessed nutrient-dense foods you’ll
revolve your diet around plants and
animals and you eat that way for the
rest of your life but I also understand
that there is this other thing called
life that happens whether that’s a
birthday party celebration graduation
somebody asks you to go for brunch maybe
you’re traveling and there’s just fast
food available or whatever else life
throws at you and I always like to say
that you gotta balance feast with
fasting it used to be feast and famine
but we live in a different time now food
is literally a push of a button away
from getting to your door so you gotta
balance feasting with fasting fasting
is the perfect way to counterbalance a
feast like nobody likes the guy who says
no to cake at a kid’s birthday party and
that’s the really cool thing about
fasting is it allows you to get away
with cheat meals but this isn’t a give an
inch take a mile
scenario okay let me just be clear with
that but honestly this is what I do once
a week or once every couple of weeks
I’ll treat myself to whatever I want if
I want to eat pizza ice cream wings or
whatever I feel like eating that day I’m
gonna do it and because I’ve trained my
body to become metabolically flexible
and it’s also fat adapted I can easily
get away with like a 2,000 calorie or
3,000 calorie meal so what I’ll usually
do is I’ll plan to have my cheat meal
for dinner so I’ll do a 24-hour fast
that day and then the next day you just
get back into your normal fasting
routine so just get back to your 16 hour
fast if that’s what you normally do
daily but if you’re feeling really
motivated I would do another 24 hour
fast the day after to deplete those
glycogen stores that you accumulated
from your cheat meal faster this by the
way is how you can easily get away with
a cheat meal once a week and it helps
keep people sane now some people don’t
like using the word cheat meal so call
it whatever you want you can call it
your refeed day or call it your treat
yourself day I don’t care and think
about our ancestors when they were in
food gathering mode right they would
occasionally come in to honey or you
know seasonal berries and they ate it
and they’re perfectly fine this concept
is the exact
same thing and this is also where the
90/10 rule comes in and that’s how I
live my life so 90% of the time you’re
following your intermittent fasting schedule
again you’re eating nutrient-dense foods
and the other 10% of the time live your
best life eat ice cream and there you
have it guys those are the top five
reasons why you should fast every single
day the next question that becomes how
are you actually supposed to eat if you
want to lose weight because here’s the
thing 80% of your body composition is
determined by your diet
you can’t just freestyle this part do you
have a proven plan that you can follow
to help you with that I want to give you
a free copy of my lean body blueprint
this is how I melted all the fat around
my stomach without depriving myself of
my favorite foods or wasting hours at
the gym it’s a simple four-step process
specifically designed for busy
professionals and it’s the exact same
blueprint that I teach so all my private
coaching clients and they’ve all gotten some amazing results if you want to
be the next success story then download

Women’s Weight Loss Center Lancaster Pa

Hi guys; I hope you’re all well. It’s currently Sunday the 16th of February 2020 and welcome to week 214 of my weight loss journey.
In last week’s video we all saw I had a pretty disastrous week of seeing a gain of 3.5 pounds or 1.6 kilogram.
Which meant my Body Mass Index (BMI) went from 48.6 up to 49.1
I’m going to start the proceedings off by reviewing my calorie consumption for the past week, which we can see in the graph above.
The average of this was 2,488 compared to the previous week at 3,016.
So! I finally managed to get my calorie consumption under control this week.
And I’ve brought it within my recently set target of 2,500 as an average, overall for the week.
Obviously Sunday and Saturday are still the days where I’ve gone over 2,500.
But I did say that I want to stick within 3,000 calories especially on a weekend.
So I’ve achieved that and overall I hit the target so I’m very pleased with that.
My fluid consumption though has come below my target of 3,500 to 3,461 millilitres.
So not great, just short, but it’s not far off, so I’ll give myself a pass on that one.
If we now look at my step count, which we can also see in the graph above.
The average of this was 10,338 compared to the previous week at 10,424.
So it’s still above 10,000 steps, I’m perfectly happy.
You can see last Sunday there was not many steps done whatsoever.
That’s because the UK was being hit by storm Ciara, I think that was right.
And this weekend we’re being hit by storm Dennis, so again it’s going to be limited steps I think this weekend.
But yeah; I’m pleased I’ve achieved my 10,000.
Okay I thought it might be interesting, since I’ve been on my weight loss journey now for 4 years.
I might as well do a review of how I’ve performed on the stats that I monitor on a weekly/daily basis.
I’ll also overlay the amount of weight that I’ve lost…each of those years onto the graph which I’m about to show
you.
And I’m just gonna go through and explain what this graph represents.
I’m going to start with my calorie allowance and for the first year I gave myself 3,010 calories, to have each day.
As an average what I’ve achieved for over the year, the first year was 2,881.
My second year of my loss journey I decided to reduce my calorie allowance from 3,010 down to 2,700.
And I achieved, my average for my second year was 2,654 calories.
Year three was 2,660 calories and year four was 2,743 calories.
So this is the first time I averaged out well above…or not well above, but just over my target of 2,700.
So obviously I’ve had more occasions throughout my fourth year of going over…rather than being under.
If we now look at my fluid consumption;… year one was averaged out to be 2,393 millilitres.
Year two was two 2,778 millilitres.
Year three was 3,054 millilitres and last year year four was 3,272 millilitres.
So there has been a stepped increase each year, so I have improved upon that stat at least.
Now the interesting stat for me is my activity levels.
Now if we look right back to my very very first week or week zero on my videos that I released.
I only achieved 1,025 steps as an average for the whole week.
Now at the end of my first year of my weight loss journey my average was 2,186 steps.
At the end of my second year it was 5,482 steps, so quite a big jump up there.
Year three was 6,103 steps and finally last year my average worked out to be 8,318 steps.
So again there is a remarked incline in activity levels.
And of course as you know this year for my calorie consumption I’ve reduced it from 2,700 down to 2,500.
My fluid consumption I’ve gone from 3,000 to 3,500 (millilitres).
And stepwise I’m wanting to achieve, finally! my 10,000 steps average.
It’s that time of the week where we all get to see if I’ve managed to lose any more weight.
So here is guys, here’s my weigh in.
I weigh 167 kilograms which is 368.2 pounds or 26 stone 4.2 pounds.
This means in the last week I’ve seen a loss of 2 pounds or 0.9 kilogram.
And if we compare this result to the result I obtained a Slimming World, you can see this right here.
At Slimming World this week I also saw a loss of 2 pounds or 0.9 kilogram.
This week’s loss now means I’ve lost 57.9% of the weight I gained over Christmas.
Based on this week’s weight loss it sees my Body Mass Index (BMI) go from 49.1 down to 48.8.
And if we look at my third weight loss target;
Last week it was 44.3% complete and after the loss it goes up to 47.1% complete.
So in the 214 weeks I’ve been doing this weight loss journey.
I’ve lost a total of; 173 pounds which is 78.5 kilograms or 12 stone 5 pounds.
Next week I’m going to continue working towards losing the Christmas weight gain.
I would love to see 2 to 3 pound weight loss next week.
Stats wise though they’re all pretty much where I like them to be.
Maybe just my fluid, increased that slightly to get it back above the 3,500 millilitre mark.
But overall I’m pretty happy with those and hopefully I will see that weight loss but I’m hoping for next.
But other than that guys, that’s it. That’s the end of this week’s video.
As always if you’d like to continue following me along my weight loss journey and hopefully get to see much less of me in the future.
By all means subscribe to my channel so you don’t get to miss out on any future videos that I post.
I wish you all a fantastic week and I’ll see you all again next Sunday.

Best Ways To Lose Weight For Women Over 50

– It’s Saturday, and I’m
taking my son to the vet.
(record scratching)
Wait, I’m not taking my
son to the pediatrician.
I’m taking my son to the vet.
Let’s find out why.
– I’ve always wanted to be
a vet since I was young,
since my parents were
always really good vets.
And I have two dogs, so
I really love animals.
Cats and dogs, they’re both great.
And also saving lives,
that’s really special.
So I think that’s why I want…
– [Mother] What kind of
procedure are we gonna see today?
– A scope.
– [Mother] Do you know what
is wrong with the patient?
He’s been losing weight.
So, we need to get GI
biopsies to figure out why
this patient is losing weight.
(upbeat music)
– [Mother] It’s really hard to figure out
why your pet is losing weight,
when they’re losing weight,
and then what test we’re gonna do.
So that is what today’s
vlog is going to be about.
What to do when your pet is losing weight.
(upbeat music)
– Okay, so the first thing
that we want you to know
about weight loss in dogs and cats is…
– I think one of the biggest things
is that it’s easy to miss.
– Yeah.
– You can have a happy, healthy
cat or dog that seems fine,
and next thing you know
they’ve lost a significant part
of their body weight.
– And this happened to
our own cat, Geetar.
And, I think because
dogs and cats are fluffy,
and we’re with them everyday,
it can be really hard
to notice weight loss,
especially if it’s
happening slowly over time.
And for us, it was actually
your mom who came in over
Thanksgiving and said, “Geetar
looks a little bit thin.”
And we’re two board certified specialists.
And so, we brought him to the clinic
and realized he had
lost about three pounds.
And so, a 13 pound cat
going down to 10 pounds,
is a significant proportion
of his body weight.
And I think that’s a really important tip,
when you hear the number of
pounds that your dog or cat
has lost, is to think about it
in percentage of body weight.
– Yep, yeah I know, I agree.
A lot of people say,
“Well it’s just a pound.”
Well it’s a 10 pound cat,
one pound is 10% of your
body weight, that’s a lot.
– Right, and a 70 pound dog
losing a pound is not that much.
Not a big deal.
A lot of that can just
be changes in hydration
over the course of a day.
So definitely you wanna
think about how much weight
they have lost in percentage
to their total body weight.
– And also with the smaller weight loss,
it’s watching trends.
– Exactly.
– Lose a pound here, or half a pound here,
and then you gain a half pound,
then it’s not a big deal.
But if it’s a consistent
trend in the wrong direction,
then that needs to be addressed.
– Right.
So, how do we know if our
pets are losing weight?
We need to weigh them on a regular basis.
So it’s really important that…
It may mean popping your
animal into the clinic.
And most animal clinics will be really,
will be fine if you bring your
pet in for a weight check.
They’re not going to mind at all.
So just call your clinic and
say, “Hey, can I bring Penelope
“in, we just wanna check the weight.”
The other thing is, if they’re small,
you can weigh yourself, pick
up your pet and weigh them,
and just do the math,
and weigh them at home.
I think that’s a really good thing to do.
– The other thing that we notice a lot,
is just noticing the backbone.
You pet you cat, you pet
your dogs all the time,
you may notice that you’re
feeling that spine a lot easier.
That can be a big tip that they’re losing,
not only just weight, but muscle loss.
And that’s always a cause for concern.
Your body doesn’t just wanna
lose muscle for no reason.
And so, if they’re starved
for energy and they want more,
they’ll steal it from the muscle.
– Yeah.
And so again, so when you’re at the vet,
definitely just make sure you ask
how much weight have they lost,
how much weight have they
gained, and keep track of it.
And be really pro-active.
And I love the owners that
have a little journal,
a little log or something,
even on their smart phone
that they’re keeping track of it.
So again, it’s easy to
miss, be pro-active,
stay on top of it.
That’s our first tip.
The second thing that we want
you to know about weight loss
in dogs and cats, is
there are a big bunch of
number of reasons that
dogs and cats lose weight.
– Poor nutrition, oral
disease, swallowing disorders,
oesophageal problems, stomach problems,
intestinal problems, liver
disease, kidney disease,
hyperthyroidism in
cats, diabetes mellitus.
And then, yes of course, cancer.
– So the third thing that you
should know about weight loss,
and we’re gonna talk about one
specific one ’cause I think
this can be really confusing
for dog and cat owners,
is gastrointestinal disease,
or intestinal disease.
– And I see a lot of cases that
come to me for weight loss.
And they’ve already been
to a general practitioner,
and they’ve had an exam, and
blood work, and urine testing.
And they’ve ruled out all the,
honestly easier things
that you could look into.
Diabetes shows up relatively
easily on blood tests.
Hyperthyroidism shows
up relatively easily.
But then you’re left with,
all my blood work’s completely normal,
and yet my cat has lost
three pound, what’s wrong?
And that is almost always
underlying intestinal disease.
If your intestines aren’t
absorbing your nutrients,
even if you’re eating well,
you’re still gonna lose weight.
And a common misconception is,
well it can’t be GI disease
because there’s no vomiting or diarrhea
and my cat’s or dog’s eating fine.
That is not true.
Weight loss can be the only
symptom of intestinal disease,
and it can be difficult to figure out.
– Yeah, so I think that’s really important
and worth repeating.
That weight loss can be the only symptom
that you are seeing at
home, and your dog or cat
can still have something
wrong with their intestines.
And to recap, your
veterinarian or your internist,
is gonna do blood, blood work.
So a full CBC, chemistry
panel, urinalysis…
– Thyroid.
– Thyroid testing.
We talked about in the last segment,
different diseases that can cause it.
And then we’re gonna do some
chest x-rays and ultrasound.
Looking for the different
cancers which we’re gonna talk
a little bit more about
in the next segment.
But then, for intestinal
disease, if that’s all normal,
they come to you, and what’s
gonna be the next step?
– One other test that you can do,
especially if you’re
still not 100% certain,
is a maldigestion profile.
It’s a simple blood test
that can look and see
if you’re absorbing certain vitamins well,
if you’re producing a certain
enzyme from the pancreas
that you need.
If these tests are positive,
meaning they’re abnormal,
they’re strongly indicative
that you need to head
in that direction, whether
it’s pancreas or intestine.
If they’re normal though, it
doesn’t rule it out at all.
It still could easily
be intestinal problems,
and the next step would be GI biopsy.
– [Mother] Right.
And so there’s two main ways
that we can do GI biopsies
in dogs and cats.
And that’s either gonna be endoscopy,
which is how we started this video, right?
So we were going to work
today, on a Saturday,
to do GI biopsies or endoscopy
on one of my patients,
and you were giving me a
hand with that this Saturday.
Or going to surgery for
full thickness biopsy.
So we’re not gonna go through
the pluses and minuses
of those, but that’s gonna
be a great discussion
for you to have.
It can change a little
case by case, dogs or cats.
Cats with lymphoma are gonna be different
than the dog that we
were working up today.
But talk to your veterinarian,
talk to your oncologist,
talk to your internist,
about whether or not
they recommend endoscopy which
is what we showed you today.
Where we…
How do we do endoscopy real quick.
– [Dr. Heuter] (laughs)
Pass the scope down through
the mouth,
you evaluate the stomach and
the small intestine visually,
but then you also take
biopsies of both the stomach
and the small intestine
if it’s an upper GI.
– Upper GI.
And then if you need biopsies of the rest,
of different organs, or lower intestines,
or other deeper parts of the intestines,
we’re gonna recommend that you
have full surgical explore.
But again, then we’re
gonna get our biopsies.
And then we’re gonna be
looking for things like
inflammatory bowel disease,
or gastrointestinal lymphoma.
That’s what those biopsies
are gonna help us figure out.
So number four, we’re
gonna talk about cancer.
But remember, a lot of
animals that are losing weight
are not coming to see me.
You’re going to your veterinarian,
or you’re being referred to
an internist like Dr. Heuter.
So Dr. Heuter, can I call you Kerry?
– No.
– Okay, I tried.
(Dr. Heuter laughs)
– Dr. Heuter, when are you thinking cancer
when a patient comes in for weight loss?
– Most of the time people come to me,
they’ve already had the normal blood work.
So at that point I am
concerned about cancer
or intestinal disease.
Those are always my two big concerns.
And so, that’s where I do recommend
an x-ray and an ultrasound.
And I’m looking for couple things.
One is just a large mass,
large mass in the chest,
or maybe large mass in the belly
that’s just eating up a lot of energy.
So even though you’re eating well,
it’s chewing through energy.
It’s speeding up your metabolism
and you keep dropping weight.
Or option two is, it’s just
such a space occupying mass
that it’s either affecting
the way you swallow
up in your chest, so you
don’t want to eat as much.
Or it’s pushing on your stomach,
so even though you do eat,
you seem to get full really fast
and then you don’t wanna continue to eat.
So those two are the two big reasons.
And lastly, I’m looking
for some other support
of intestinal disease.
Oh look, there’s an intestinal mass.
Or, oh look, there’s
a bunch of lymph nodes
near the intestine, that would
fit more with GI lymphoma.
– Right.
And then, within the GI lymphomas,
we have high grade lymphomas
and low grade lymphomas.
And the high grade lymphomas are the ones
that are developing more quickly,
and then the lower grade
lymphomas are the ones
that are more of a slowly
developing chronic disease.
And so, that will also depend
on that the animal lose
a lot of weight more
quickly, vomiting, diarrhea.
But again, as we learned
in the last segment,
sometimes weight loss is the only symptom
and then sometimes we’ll
see vomiting, diarrhea,
decreased appetite, or just
changes in appetite as well.
So our fifth tip is, so you
may be waiting for test results
to come back about what the
diagnosis is for weight loss.
And many animals that are losing
weight are not eating well.
And guys, I have a
couple of videos on this,
if you are tempting them with other foods
and your pet is not
eating their regular food,
they are inappetent.
They have a poor appetite.
And I want you to go home at that visit
with appetite stimulant.
I have two whole videos that we’re gonna
put the links below, about
things that you can do,
some of them are medications
and some of them are just…
We did this video together,
about tips that you can do
to help get your pet eating
when they don’t wanna eat.
But there are some great
medications, so we have entyce
which is an appetite stimulant for dog.
Mirataz which is a topical
ear medication for cats.
We have nausea medications like Cerenia.
Getting nutrients into
the body is so important
for the immune system and
so many different things.
So, I just wanted to make
sure that you are getting
those medication for your
pet, even before we understand
what the cause of the weight
loss and the poor appetite is.
– That’s great, as long as we understand
that’s not the treatment.
That’s something to help
us, give us the time we need
to find the right diagnosis
and get the real treatment started.
– Right, it’s supportive
care in the interim.
So I think it’s just really temporary.
And then, an important thing to bring up,
you should not go home on steroids.
It’s a great appetite
stimulant, it’s great,
it works powerfully.
But steroids are bad because
they will mess up the diagnosis
for lymphoma.
So, we will not recommend
steroids if we think possibly,
that lymphoma is one
of the possible causes
for weight loss inappetent.
– Which it’s almost always on the list.
– All right Dr. Heuter,
since that’s what apparently
I have to call him, we
made it to our last tip.
Often pets that are losing weight,
are eating normally, right?
– Yeah. In fact there are
some diseases that actually
they’ll be having increased appetite.
– Right.
– Like hyperthyroidism, diabetes,
even certain types of intestinal diseases,
they will have a veracious appetite
but still be losing a ton of weight.
– Right.
So I think that often surprises people
to find out that their pet
is sick because appetite
is one of the ways that
we often measure how well,
how happy our pets are,
and their quality of life.
So again, just going back to the beginning
that weight loss is important
to be pro-active with,
to monitor.
Just a really, one of
