Instead, the researchers found, obesity increases the risk for heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure, and the risk increases the more fat one carries around the waist. The research finds that obesity does raise risk for heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure. FRIDAY, March 16, 2018 (HealthDay News)—A new British study of nearly 300,000 people dismantles the “obesity paradox,” a theory that claims being obese does not necessarily raise heart risks. Instead, the researchers found, obesity increases the risk for heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure, and the risk increases the more fat one carries around the waist. “The higher total body fat or fat around the abdomen, the greater the risk of heart disease and stroke in individuals without existing disease,” said lead researcher Dr. Stamatina Iliodromiti.

Moreover, those healthy obese had the same reduced risk of heart disease and cancer as healthy normal-weight people, they added.

  • Jillian I think you should back your videos up with proper medical science not your own so called “Basic Science”. I am overweight and DO NOT have a single issue other than my weight. I am an ex medic so I do have some idea of what I am talking about. I am not nor ever have been diabetic, no hypertension nor cardiac issues, I dont have any other co-morbidities. My HDL and LDL are absolutely normal, my fasting glucose is 4mmol, my TSH profile is normal. My liver is not fatty nor ever has been. I exercise at least 2 hours a day including weights, cardio and swimming. Have you actually taken into account the inherited genes that may contribute to obesity? You talk like a real expert but in fact you do not have a single medical qualification to your name to back up anything you say

  • It’s important to say that being a bit overweight and being obese are very different. I’ve been obese for almost 15 years. I am only now seeing my blood sugar and cholesterol going up, but not enough to label me diabetic or need medication. I thought I was ok because my labs were always good. It does catch up to you. Not only that, but it’s incredibly uncomfortable to be this big. It’s okay to love your body and recognize that you aren’t in optimal health. She’s right, it’s not healthy, even if your labs are fine now.

  • I’m 10 pounds down on my 30 pound weight loss journey. All thanks to Jillian Michaels’ meal plan and body shred 60-day program.
    It’s hard, but results are happening…. ����

  • Someone who is overweight and makes the necessary lifestyle changes can get ‘healthy’ so damn quickly it’s mind-boggling…for some it can take just a month of good eating and exercise to achieve healthy blood pressure, good blood tests and better cardiovascular fitness. The excess weight just takes a little extra time to get back to normal.

  • Here I am. A year after I had a baby, back to my weight that I was the day I went into labor, except I don’t have a baby in my belly. I need help figuring it out to lose weight.

  • This is a weighty matter and we need to get the fats straight! There is slim chance of really getting to the bottom of it.

    It was so much simpler in the times before obesity and political correctness were invented!
    Before obesity was bad people could just eat what they wanted, no diet this or low fat that
    People need to be given the tools to lose weight, not shamed into it.
    It’s like the old saying, Give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach his wife to fish feed him for a lifetime

    Some fat people live long lives, some fit people die young. My own grandfather died when he was 5 snd he was very healthy!

  • great video. my birth dad died 2 years ago of a heart attack at 50 years old. ive told my doctors this and they told me it means i have heart disease in the family. so im told to lose weight and exercise. i also work in british heart foundation charity shop to help raise money for people who have heart disease in the family. 

  • Agreed!
    Don’t forget a cirrhosis of the liver, can clean up with healthy diet, and losing weight. My Cleveland Clinic Dr. says” fat will eventually go onto your organs”.(Fatty Liver) Especially as we age., especially not good for peri,,pre menopause women.

  • Okay Julian, we know you make your money from an over bloated diet industry.
    I bet you can’t explain why the so-called “normal weight” people get these same exact diseases.

  • It amazes me the mental gymnastics people are able to do to justify their bad lifestyles. There have been so many terms and phrases created just to prop these people up. All in the name of protecting their “feelings”. That and why so many people think the rules of science don’t apply to them and they’ll be the smoker who lives to be 100 or the 300 pounder that lives into their 90s. If there is someone to that affect, with very minute exceptions, it’s medications keeping their hearts pumping. Nothing more.

  • Yeah it kills me when i have to think 3 times before saying anything around someone with clear overweight problem. You may be healthy until certain stage being obese or overweight but then your body will give up and problems will start rolling in. I am just below treshold of overweight and I know this is not good for my body with all the fat storing toxins and affecting my hormones. And all these body positivity freaks! Saying how a super dimply very large girl is actually sexy and happy because she dresses nice and knows how to style her clothes. Doesnt anybody see that is is going to get sick really soon and then not be happy? Happiness should be about health not clothes…(facepalm)

  • I’ve been saying this for years and I was born with heart disease but I workout watch my diet. Some people think I’m stupid but I think it’s preventative maintenance!!

  • instead of ‘overweight’, title should say ‘overfat’. I am 15% bodyfat but i am on the cusp of being ‘overweight’ because of my body structure (short, stocky build with wide hips) and carrying a lot of muscle mass.

  • So… are you saying this has an impact on every person who is overweight? Even if it’s just a few kilos? ‘Cause with obesity, I completely agree that it is indeed harmful and certainly NOT HEALTHY but I don’t think this affects people with just some extra fat. Correct me if I’m wrong but, in my opinion, having a little gut isn’t harming you as long as you’re eating somewhat healthy.

  • Shes right I mean honestly I am highly obese started her workouts and calorie counting, and I have lost 5 pounds in 7 days! I am doing simple calories in and calories out. I do have good blood pressure even fat but its because I swim its an exercise. I hate to say this woman doesn’t sugar coat and she is straight up. I like the way she explains things and I like her attitude with everything. Its the most simple weight loss plan I have been on (its very similar to weight watchers) just cheaper! lol

  • What’s your definition of overweight? A bmi chart shows underweight healthy overweight obese and extremely obese, but most people on that chart that are overweight aren’t always fat or unhealthy, and their genetics can tell a different story, also it can be inaccurate especially if the person has a lot of muscle mass

  • She makes a really good point, but im still confused. I saw a video from blogilates about women categorized by their bmi. These two women are obese but they have very different lifestyles. This one woman works out alot (she’s a bodybuilder) and she eats balanced meals (mostly protein). Turns out her body fat percentage was significantly lower than the other obese woman. Her body fat percentage is at 5%. But her bmi says she’s obese. So is she still at risk for all of these health complications even though her body fat percentage is not above average?

  • People shouldn’t confuse health and beauty there are GORGEOUS overweight women and beautiful men that are fat but it isn’t healthy…

  • GIRL! I just love ya! I love your fearlessness in expressing factual truth. I love how you are bold and blunt. We obeseasties NEED that bold and blunt factual truth. Sure it often hurts our feelings. But that is because NO ONE has taught us HOW to not need to make excuses and justifications for how we got where we are. We got ourselves on the hamster’s wheel of bad eating and bad health choices, bad choices over all and we are stuck on that damn wheel and we hurt in our hearts and minds in addition to the physical pains in our bodies and we cry. Rivers to flood the earth, we cry. BECAUSE WE GOT OURSELVES STUCK and can’t quite figure out how to get off that hamster wheel of bad choosing. We can’t quite figure out HOW TO STICK TO A PLAN. How. To Stick. To A Plan.UNTIL! Someone like you enters our sphere. Bold and blunt and tellin’ it LIKE IT IS. THAT is where our help, REAL help, arrives. IF we but have ears to hear. And I do. AND………… I am stealing your phrase “Actively Engaged”. My new mantra. I thank you for continuing to be there for us.

  • I’m currently working to reverse what 3 years of a poor college lifestyle has done to my body. Y’all, don’t feel bad or ashamed. Feel empowered! In May of 2021, I’ll be climbing stairs at Manchu Picchu with incredibly high altitudes, and feeling great about what my body can do.

  • @robopaladin Im an obese person. I play tennis, I go bike riding, I even jog. I have a personal trainer as well. Im still obese. Its just my lot in life. I am still 35 lbs overweight. Im a very active person, and I hate that people label fat people as lazy. I am definitely not lazy. I do more than most thin people I know.

  • This video is 50% nonsense.
    Saturated fats are the good fats.
    There is no such thing ad bad cholesterol.
    The more fat you eat the lower your risk of heart disease.

  • Jillian, keep doing what you’re doing! I don’t think you should be faulted for being a health and fitness professional looking at things through a health and fitness lens. I think part of the issue is people are confusing health conversations with self-worth conversations. There’s a difference between a professional that I’ve sought out to help me become healthy and some random person slinging the word “fat”as an insult to hurt my feelings. Am I overweight? Yes. Do I love myself the way I am and surround myself with good friends? Yes, because I am worthy of love regardless of my health. Am I trying to lose weight to become healthier? Yes, because my healthcare providers recommended it and I want to take care of my long-term health. Separate issues.

  • This really hits home for me. I’m desperate for my teenage daughter with an eating disorder. She over eats and is over weight and pre diabetic. I’ve tried everything, but maybe letting her watch this video will help. Thank you Jillian!

  • That depends on how you define healthy. Health is multifaceted. Emotional health, spiritual health, physical health, many many factors. I’m overweight and I get my biometrics done yearly and all my markers are normal. I’m healthy because I have great habits, I exercise 5 days a week, I eat nutrient dense foods, and I’m still overweight. For your next video, talk about how diet-culture and the fitness industry has infiltrated our medical systems and sends the message that skinny is healthy. It’s unbelievable that intelligent people believe that just because someone is body privileged and is naturally thin, but eats shitty food everyday and smokes cigarettes is healthier than me because I’m “overweight” according to the bullshit BMI scale.

  • Actually, people living up to 100 years old will cost a lot more money than those dying around 50 because of an heart attack. From a strict economic point of view, the American model is the good one, probably that’s why politicians are not that motivated to find “solutions”

  • The good thing about watching Jillian videos is I’m not sweating. To be honest I’m not even exercising. I’m just trying to learn and then put it into practice later.

  • My professor in med school actually showed us studies that in overweight people their health risks dramatically DECREASED when they are more active. The health risks seem to be more so attributed to lack of healthy movement. He also said that for most diseases the risk increased isn’t significant until a person is OBESE/ highly overweight. What is your view about this? Have you heard of this before?

  • Jillian, I would love you to talk about what it means to be healthy other than eat healthy and dont be overweight. But how long should I be able to run for without getting out of breath? How much should I be able to lift? Etc etc.

  • you can be unhealthy at a normal weight if you consume carbs, you can exercise your muscles but you can’t exercise your liver. Ultra-marathon runner and top marathon advisor Professor Tim Noakes got type 2 diabetes from gatorade and he was the ideal picture of health. Now he admits he was wrong about carbs and tells marathon runners not to eat carbs before a race anymore. So to answer your question Jillian. I bet even an overweight person who has been doing keto and cutting carbs out for awhile can even be healthier than you Jillian. If they did blood tests and test for fatty liver they would kick your butt.

  • I just wish I could get help from someone like Jillian. I suffer from chronic migraine now, and I can’t exercise like I used to because now expertises sets off migraines. So I’m stuck in this awful sedentary lifestyle. And I can’t really cook because the lack of strength and energy is real. Please don’t misunderstand this is not whining, I would give anything to be the person I used to be. We also have 3 young children and doctors who do overlook my morbidly obese weight (I’m 5 ft tall and weigh 176) because we’re all just trying to control my migraines to give me some semblance of a normal life. And I keep thinking if I could just somehow lose weight, some of these problems would help themselves. But doctors don’t fix people, they just medicate. So I just wish I could find someone like Jilllian Michaels.

  • Meanwhile people are judging and bashing Adele for loosing weight. Let’s hope she did it the healthy way. I am happy for her. It’s difficult to loose weight. I used to be 224 and now I am 138. As a 50 year woman it was more difficult. I got the same judgement as a Adele. I just don’t understand why people think it’s a bad thing. I wish her a healthy happy life and to all the people that are on that journey of loosing weight.

  • Can you please expand on the topic of going bankrupt because of obesity. Is it that they can’t work, don’t want to work or because more money is spent on food than bills? It would be interesting to find out.

  • It’s all good. But I will tell you that I am a metric fuckton healthier than my thin co-workers who shovel in the pizza and wings every day and can’t walk up a flight of stairs without sweating. I’m vegan (which already makes me unhealthy in your book) and walk every day for 30 mins at lunch, and consistently surpass my 10,000/day goal. No hurt feelings here because I KNOW I’m healthier than many thin people who don’t exercise or eat well-and science, my blood, and my clean bill of health from my PCP is my proof. What’s in your arteries?

  • I have done every diet in the world. Now we are plant based, my husband lost 20 pounds (he was already thin, unhealthy) and I lost 6 pounds (I am obese and have great bloodwork). I exercise and nothing works for me. I am tired all the time, push through my days everyday. There is no answers that work for everyone. I am still trying to find what works for me and I will keep trying until something clicks. It is so frustrating to hear all the different theories about how to lose. UGH!!!!!!

  • I love her and love even more that she isn’t afraid to just say it. It’s not personal it doesn’t make you a bad person…it’s just how it is.

  • Omg you seem like you already know the absolute truth! And I can imagine how dangerous it can be that a person like you having so much impact shares this information based on their own prejudice and stigma! you mention so much basic science etc etc when there’s are a looooot of evidence showing that your weight does not define if you are healthy or not, so if people like this person were so interested in helping other people, you should check that basic science you talk so much about and update about the real facts! Not only perpetuate the weight stigma we all have internalized and stop the fat fobia

  • Jillian hurt my feelings ��… I just need to know how does one get the weight off when they are insulin resistant?? I’ve been working out for the past year and no weight has come off but I haven’t gain any either. So what does a person do??

  • I was dx as a diabetic type 2 at the age of 39. I am going to be 41in a few months. I used to be really fit. But that changed and I became to busy to look after my own health better. Now I need to with medicine daily. I have dropped 15 lbs and still working on me in different layers. But we are all a work in progress and being healthy completely is something we should all strive for. Don’t wait till your body decides for you.

  • What do you think about Mukbangs, cheat days and this trend of super high calorie food challenges within the fitness community? I feel like eating 15,000 calories in a day is maybe…probably, not good?

  • This body positive movement is turning America into the movie Wall-E. I’m all for loving your body despite its flaws, etc etc.. but when you’re trying to promote obesity as healthy and shove it down everyone’s throats as perfection, get out.

  • realisticly, dementia causing pollutants cant stay metabolically active enough to be stored in fat, as an active enzyme, or ion, or protein-molecule. its just impossible. checked.
    other stuff can hang around, but mostly stuff that winds itself into adipo-close proteins,. so if the chemical or posion is able to be a0 converted into a protein or amino acid (including fatty acids) [then you are safe though, coz youve converted it into usable stuff. so its not toxic], or b0 if you manage to somehow bind the molecules into your adipose tissue (like a virus binding itself to your cells ] so…youre basicly talking either:
    incomlplete metabolism;
    virus-like behaviour
    from the environmental toxins or pollutants.
    i mean no..we just store good stuff. we dont store those. However, there are many places in the body where that stuff can accumulate. its not metabolically active tissue though.

    so \. no. we will not get dementia. EVER. ever.
    people that are prone to dementia generally have very weak nervous systems. Or, in my nana’s case, the CRAZY genes come out. and she pretends its dementia. she was still fun though. Just finally letting loose. I’m quite looking forward to that.

  • Jillian isn’t doing her job bc she wants to shame people. She honestly wants to help people and if media can’t see that oh well ����‍♀️ she’s saving lives tho

  • Thanks for being honest. I’ve been a cardiac nurse for almost 20yrs and as people became bigger they were sicker younger. I believe in loving yourself no matter what size but that does not mean we have to lie to obese people that it’s healthy.

  • Nice video content! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you heard about Trentvorty Irreplaceable Doctor Theorem (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a good exclusive product for curing heart disease minus the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate after many years got astronomical results with it.

  • thank you, thank you, thank you, this is my 2nd time watching this information! I am becoming hooked on your video’s they are filled with so much information and I truly appreciated it!

  • I think a lot of younger people want to deny this because maybe they’re not experiencing any significant health problems right NOW, but overtime continuing to put all of that extra weight on your body will come back to haunt you. It is important to love yourself, but to love yourself is to also take care of yourself. You don’t need to train like an athlete and eat like a rabbit. But this mentality that being obese is okay as long as you feel happy is a dangerous message to send to people.

  • Thank you!!! I myself am overweight (technically obese, according to BMI) and get so sick of hearing you can be my size and be healthy and no worries because “thick is in” no it is not! And I don’t care that I have good “muscle mass”… I still need to take charge of my health ��

  • Your physical appearance is not the only reason to exercise, eating right and working out will also increase your energy throughout the day, if you do it long enough and with discipline. Higher energy levels and a more balanced body lead to a more enjoyable life.

  • I wanted to work at a job that I liked…not getting that job sucked…the weight is keeping me away from…having confidence…
    It leads me to earning less money than I did!

  • I want to live until my time is up. When your time comes it really doesn’t matter what kind of physical shape you are in. You can be in top notch physical shape, and then be going on your morning jog one day and get hit by a car and end up as worm food. I guess the worms need to watch their diet as well.

  • because many of my pt’s are overweight/obese and they lose they’re ability to walk as they get older. Next they become bedridden and get shipped off to lonely nursing homes where they further debilitate, develop bedsores & contractures & then ROT away. It’s very painful and smelly.
