Obese Mothers And Children More Likely To Underestimate Weight

Filed under: FitnessHealthBodyObese

Obese children and mothers underestimate weight

A new study presented at the American Heart Association conference in Atlanta on Wednesday shows that obese mothers and their children are more likely to underestimate their own and each other's weight.

Columbia University researchers found 82% percent of the obese women in their study underestimated their weight, compared with 43% of overweight and 13% of normal-weight women.

Similarly, 86% of overweight or obese children failed to correctly estimate their weight, compared with just 15% of normal-weight children.

This suggests that with roughly two-thirds of adults and one-third of children in the U.S. now overweight or obese, those in that category are more likely to perceive their weight as "normal".

The study's lead author Nicole E Dumas, M.D., said, "A lot of their misperception has to do with the fact that overweight and obesity is becoming the norm."

That's a little unsettling.

Dumas continued to explain:

"There was a trend that showed that as women became more and more overweight, and then obese, the larger the misperception of true body weight was. Unfortunately, we found this was the case with the children as well."

Since most of the participants were Latino mothers and children in urban settings, other medical experts believe the study was too small and too ethnically homogenous to support any firm conclusions.

However, the study author points out that other studies have found similar trends among African Americans and Caucasians.

Either way, it's a little scary to think that obesity is becoming the perception of what is "normal".

Bosley Found For Charlie's Angels

Filed under: TV News

Rodriguez Cast As Bosley

Sweet justice, Bosley has been cast!

It's been announced that Ramon Rodriguez has been cast along side the beauties of Charlie's Angels!!

Like we said, he'll be playing Bosley: the man who helps the Angels and is the middle man between them and the higher-ups at the secret agency. The young actor has been seen in The Wire and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen most notably, and we think will be a fab fit for the role!

It's about time! We need more Latinos in mainstream television!!

Best of luck, bb! You are TOO cute!

Thoughts on Rodriguez getting the role??
