Review Resurge!!

Review Resurge!!: Obesity is a medical condition that occurs when a person carries excess weight or body fat that might affect their health. An expanding waistline and obesity are sometimes considered as a sign of getting age. 

Snake oil. Here is my rebuttal to this bullshit. I think I was reasonably polite. I'd like to think that I educated the poster, but I doubt it.

Stuff like this has been around for years and it really does not work. A person's body type is the result of multiple factors. The primary factor in determining body type is, very simply, DNA.

Body type is also determined by factors such as endocrine and other health issues and the medications a person is taking. It surprises most people to learn that one of the biggest contributers to "obesity" (which is an offensive term, by the way), is repeated dieting. Weight reduction diets work long term for only about five percent of people who engage in them.

When people go on a diet, their body doesn't know that it isn't facing a famine, and it reduces the metabolic rate. When the dieter starts eating normally again, their body, its metabolic rate now reduced, starts storing adipose tissue to be prepared for the next famine. The first few times a person diets, they will lose weight. Over time, however, their ability to lose weight will be sharply reduced.

When you are looking at an "obese" person, you are very likely looking at a person who has dieted numerous times and tried every trick in the book, including pills like these. 


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
