Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S. Women Smoking. Anti-tobacco efforts should focus on these concerns, researchers say. And a 10 percent increase in exposure to anti-smoking messages was associated with a 12 percent increase in attempts to quit among female U.S. smokers who did not believe that smoking helps control weight, but no increase in quit attempts among those who thought smoking helped control weight. Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S.

Women Smoking. Anti-tobacco efforts should focus on these concerns, researchers say. Please note: This article was published more than one year ago. The facts and conclusions presented may have since changed and may no longer be accurate.

And “More information” links may no longer work. MONDAY, April 13, 2015 (HealthDay News) American women who believe smoking helps control weight are less likely than other female smokers to try quitting in response to higher cigarette prices and anti-smoking messages, a new study finds. “American women who believe smoking helps control weight are less likely than other female smokers to try quitting in response to higher cigarette prices and anti-smoking messages, a new study finds.” Read the article above for more information. Have you or someone you know put off quitting smoking for fear of gaining weight if you do?

Weight-Control Myths Keep Many U.S. Women Smoking Some Expert Tips to Help Smokers Finally Quit in 2015 Anti-Smoking Campaign Successful and Cost-Effective, CDC Says. Five pounds was also the don’t-pass-go number in a later study of women smokers.

Myth: Smoking affects your metabolism. Reality: When it comes to smoking and weight loss, metabolism—how your body processes food for energy, often gets the credit for weight control. Smoking does increase your metabolic rate, but only slightly.

Smoking cigarettes increases your metabolism, so you burn more calories. When you stop smoking, you may burn fewer calories, which can lead to weight gain. Regular exercise can help you continue to burn those calories.

Just 10 minutes of exercise a day can make a difference. “The best way to reduce the risks of smoking is to quit smoking altogether, not exercising more and eating better,” Hatsukami says. Nicotine patches and gum are as bad for me as smoking. MYTH.

Every year in the U.S., more than 480,000 people die from tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke, making it the leading cause of preventable death in this country. Tragically, each day thousands.

Women around the world are more likely than men to say that they smoke to suppress their appetite (Reid et al., 2009), and women are concerned about gaining weight if they quit smoking (Larsen, Otten, & Engels, 2009).

Placental weight, which normally increases with cigarette smoking, an effect hypothesized to be due to compensatory hypertrophy induced by chronic fetal hypoxia, was found to decrease significantly in women smoking ≥15 cigarettes/day and ingesting ≥300 mg of caffeine/day (21).

Interestingly, although others have investigated concern about gestational weight gain and postpartum weight loss as predictors of smoking cessation and postpartum return to smoking (McBride, Pirie, & Curry, 1992), smoking intervention trials with pregnant women had not measured cessation’s effect on weight gain.

Women’s concerns about weight gain and the maintenance of their smoking behavior sadly reflect their willingness to risk long-term detrimental—and potentially catastrophic—consequences in exchange for dealing with body image and weight-control issues.

If it is medically appropriate, women should also incorporate an exercise program into their quitting plan to increase their metabolic rate and make up for the lowered metabolism that results from the drop in nicotine levels.

  • Chinese and yoga philosophies and ways of actions are right since 2 to 3 thousands years ago!!!”they have had plenty of time to confirm their understanding of life principles.so don’t be fooled by western philosophie it is only 2 to 3 hundred years of controversial experiences with often hidden truths!!!! study the history of this new civilisation. it has brought us many worldly big problems.which are threatening our own life now!!! they have really spoiled everything…..but do you know that there are yet solutions that exist and they will or may come from each one of us if we change our thinking!!! what does that mean????what you see is coming from the functioning of your own mind and all the conditioning that you have received from your family and teachers and all other people called collective thinking and beliefs.to unravel all this mess you have to know yourself!!! know yourself and you will know the universe and the gods is often said by the greatest spiritual masters of the past and actually. but we seem to be far away of what is being done actually!!! so otherwise this situation will continue and something else will happen to force the change in the world!!! nature is more intelligent the man!!! it will know to ‘re establish the balance!!! but man will have to learn msny lessons.with no joy but…know that you are eternal by your soul not by your body which is ephemeral…you will come back on earth!!! if life is still possible….as you think so shall you be!!! this is a great law of life!!! this is a dream life!!! the arborigens people of australia have always said…..

  • Americans haven’t heard of oats, kiwi, cucumbers, lettuce, chickpeas???? Low fat skim milk probably??? ���� Something to keep them full for a long time???

  • Good presentation.. I saw another video today..a must watch on the role of Vitamins on your immunity.. must watch

  • Honestly trough all these documentaries, pretty much all I know is, DONT EVER LET ANYONE ELSE DECIDE WHAT YOU EAT. That gets you to over eat super easily, you eat because its time to eat not because you are hungary. Its such a huge trap.

  • Several of the studies he is referring to are not representative. The cigarette and chicken one is for instance far from. This just makes it all more complicated for us..

  • We can increase the functional reserves of the body, so that when the immune system is in a battle with a new pathogen the body can endure the challenge with minimum discomfort and in the shortest time possible:  https://blog.comra-palm.com/how-to-boost-immune-system-help-colds-flu-and-coronavirus/?att=11

  • I disagree. You may not need to use it to lose weight, but I recently smoked weed and I didn’t eat as much, I didn’t get the munchies and I WAS losing weight. I also ate salads and drunk green smoothies so….

  • So is the guy at the beginning of the video at the right corner of the screen, bottom right corner of the screen product placement? Lol

  • This is excellent!! As a Nurse and Teacher, I am sending it out to my students and colleagues. You will be an extraordinary physician. Well done!


  • I did feel like my immune system is better after having these supplement. My mother was sick for about a week and I was afraid I’d get caught with her virus so I took this Immune Booster. And guess what I’m healthy as ever.

  • Really informative video. I also had this immune boosting herbal product from Planet Ayurveda like Immune booster capsules and Giloy capsules that contain herbs which boosts immunity naturally. It really works wonders

  • I’ve been a big fan of Chaga myself for a while. I love that it’s getting the recognition it deserves. Sadly that leads some businesses to take advantage of consumers with snake oil-like tactics. For example, most businesses won’t tell you that the Chaga pills aren’t actually that effective because your body can’t properly metabolize the fungus(companies just want a higher $ per pound). By brewing it into tea, you actually steep the nutrients into the water which your body can metabolize much better. The quality of the Chaga is really important as well. Most companies either artificially grow it or import the Chaga from Russia. I highly recommend the Chaga from Birch Boys, I’ve been a customer for years. They wild harvest all of their mushrooms in the Adirondacks and integrate sustainable harvesting methods, allowing in most cases, for the mushroom or fungi to regrow. Due to my long time spent as a customer, they gave me a friends and family code you can use if you like. Go to http://www.birchboys.com/Tom and use the code “clif” at check out for 10% off. Sorry for the wall of text lol, I just get passionate about this message. The only way for everyone to thrive is for everyone to be aware and informed. Keep yourself safe and healthy ������

  • My family don’t want me to tell my sister the truth in case she gets upset, so they’d rather she was dead from her preventable cancer than actually save her life because protecting feelings are more important than logic

  • I love this guy. I think Dr. Greger should run for US presidency, seriously, wouldn´t that be a story? First plantbased President?

  • These people should have to lose some weight and get counseling before they get surgery. If they don’t, they will reverse their own surgery. The staples will pop, and if they don’t die, they’ll just gain the weight back. I don’t get this. Are they learning how to eat healthy?? Not from what I’m seeing.

    Also, Deborah, it’s you weren’t a “lucky go” person. You had a “happy go lucky” personality. I think that’s what you’re trying to say.

  • I wish them all good success. Many are in counseling for burying their past with food or depression that also contributes. But if you work through your past then with a team approach from the doctors you will succeed. The surgery is only a tool but not a miracle cure. You have to work hard to succeed; some slower than others but it can happen if you really want to change. I will never be able to wear a bikini again but my health has improved a lot. ��

  • vitamin D,B12,K2..that is why 2cup of milk is necessary..no meat though, culling an animal is avoidable..vegan plus two cup milk =vegetarian diet

  • I am actually immune to ticks, they instantly die after they bite me. Also mosquitos do not bite me at all, however i do not know if these attributes are related.

  • These people talk like potatoes and carrots are expensive in comparison to junk xD and even junk is fine in modesty, usually it’s a portion size and snacking issue with this kind of people…

  • Some good stuff. But also some assumptions. Correlations do not prove causation. Confounders are abundant. So much of what he has said has been authenticated, but on the other coin, a lot has already been debunked. Always continue learning even when the facts don’t fit your previous assumptions, and you won’t waste half your life like I did.

  • Anytime you juice and exercise a lot you’ll lose weight. The weed is just used as a front to me. Don’t hate weed, just saying you juice and exercise religiously I harbinger you’ll lose lots.

  • Im glad my breakfast was a bowel of miso with plate of avocados and falafel. Healthy breakfast really makes you feel great. Try to start your day with the healthiest thing you have in the Refrigerator.

  • I really do not have much sympathy. If I felt as bad about it, as they say they do, I’d refuse to eat!! They are STILL wanting the easiest way by getting the surgery. It is NOT genetic. It is LEARNED. And everyone else pays the price, her family and taxpayers the most of all.

  • I go to lots of lectures to learn about my health, mainly my depression and bipolar. The WORST thing is when the lecture ends, and we have to Q&A. I was so glad when the main talk ended, and Q&A started:) very good!

  • lol couldn’t be the fruit and super vegetables you ate? hahaha I think pot is horrible if you want to perform any type of high intensity exercise. It’s probably great to relax and eat after heavy lifting if you’re trying to bulk.

  • KEVIN: Do NOT give your mother cheese-burgers or anything else she asks you for. Give her a carrot to crunch on, or a stick of celery, as a snack. Cook her a well balanced meal, but do NOT keep enabling her. I know Kevin isn’t reading this, but I’m as frustrated as he seems to be.

  • David is such a beautiful soul,wish him all the best in life. Deborah give me chills. Freaky eyes and her pronunciation/voice sucks. So low to blame her son for the weight gane. It, s her OWN fault, she has noone to blame but her self.

  • Genetics and baby weight definitely play a role, but it’s on the person to change and make healthier choices. I was a size 6 when I got pregnant with twins and 4 yrs later I’m not at that size and probably never will be but I’m at a healthy size and weight so cant complain there.

  • The problem is getting worse not better,, has anyone out there noticed how expensive food is getting,, the good for you healthy food is so expensive nobody can afford it except for the rich people,, the only food that you have left is nothing but garbage in a can,, spaghetti in a can because it’s like $0.89 for a can,, many people are forced to get canned dry food because they can’t afford anything else,,I was in Walmart and I was thinking about getting something fresh until I saw the price tag,, so I went over and I got an entire case of canned beefaroni because I couldn’t afford the healthy food,, I’m surprised I don’t look like these people but then again I’ll be lucky if I eat once a day,,

  • Deborah terrifies me, angers me, and makes me apprehensive if I were to find myself in her son’s situation. Caring for Deborah would be hell.

  • there are a lot of doctors out there advocating lots of stuff. some sound reasonable because they seem to want to monetize their advice. i am suspicious. i trust this guy. today i am going to buy “how not to die” and the cookbook by greger. i borrowed “how” from the library and realized that i want to own it.

  • Deborah “I’m having trouble with my breathing” um If you can yell at people you’re breathing just fine….drama queen and to blame your son for what you have done to yourself = shameful

  • This is so funny to watch all these fatties by their own choice blaming everyone else except themselves for making them fat in first place.

  • If one gets lazy on pot no. If one has nagging pain keeping them from exercising more? Yes. Want to loose weight? Undermake dinner. Never do seconds. Deserts only after light dinner. Save $$$ too. Excess food = shit. Shit is worth no $$$. Food excess is killing more than guns, bombs, and drugs combined.

  • so true, i know alot of elderly people who got Coronavirus, but with mild, Symptoms because they are helthy, some food Supplements they take is Number one is Reishe Mushroom(Ganoderma), The second is Spiutlina, the company Proudec DXN.

    The company also produces lione’s Mane, Potenzhi, organic coconut oil and more.Discount code144551931. To register and order https://eworld.dxn2u.com/s/accreg/en/144551931

  • Kevin:”I’m hoping this will be a wake up call for my mother” (having to have her home dismantled just so she can get outside). If that isn’t a wake up call, then nothing will be.

  • Deborah is such an ungrateful human being who can’t take responsibility for her own actions if I was her son I would throw a water bottle and salad and lock the door because you know she can’t get out of bed

  • Until you address the core issues of why you eat and use food for comfort,losing weight usually doesn’t work and weight loss surgery is a tool not a magic wand.

  • Why was I always sick and tired on a vegan diet?
    Tried it from age 16-28 and kept getting sicker and sicker. Started eating meat a few times a week and all my health problems went away and suddenly had more energy and brain processing power than I’ve had in years.

  • David is truly inspiring. He is so strong, and so caring. His love for his mother is beautiful. I hope he continues to have a wonderful life.

  • Having been overweight growing up, I eventually lost 55 pounds and weigh at 197 pounds and muscular. Remember people, if I can do it, you can as well so never think losing weight is impossible because all I have to say is this: You Got This

  • I don’t feel sorry for any of these people because they did it to themselves! NO ONE should eat like a glutton then complain about how they feel. Seriously? STOP CRAMMING FOOD IN YOUR MOUTH and take care of yourselves!!

  • I smoked most of my life, have always been able to eat what I wanted with no weight gain, have always been normal H/W 182 cm 78-84 kg once I stopped, do to a job, for a few years, I topped at +100 kg once I began to smoke regularly agin I slowly but steady got back to my normal 80ish kg that is at least my experience but I see similar “symptoms” from friends I know who smoke, same with the health, wonder if that is why “our” governments around the world have worked so hard to keep it illegal, not many money in it compared to the medical industries and wooden paper and synthetic clothing aso

  • I found this very depressing but more so i was very angry because those morbidly obese made every excuse under the sun.Everyone was to blame but themselves and its all ways the way it goes They need to stop the blame game and accept its 100 % their OWN fault.Stop making excuses.Stop eating for 2 or 3 people.Take responsibility for your actions.Accept you need to do something about it and stop feeling sorry for yourself.Before anyone calls me cold hearted or what ever i had a very very traumatic childhood which i would never wish on anyone including my worst enemy.I suffered a lot of trauma for years so i know its sometimes hard to deal with life.But if you really really want to you can do anything and these people need to realise that.

  • You need to compare the amount of potassium in a banana to the amount in other foods with the same number of calories, NOT the same volume. Some make it a bit higher on the list but have TWICE the calories so really they only have HALF the potassium of a banana by caloric content. There are still a few foods that beat bananas by that criterion but not many.

  • I can tell you from first-hand experience the weight loss is due to depression from severe marijuana use!! I was fat my whole life growing up from elementary school until I hit Junior High then I got introduced to marijuana it was the best thing I’ve ever fucking discovered in my life! that first yet it gave me the munchies after while you get so severely depressed and dependent on the weed that you don’t care if you eat. It becomes a choice between, smoking a bowl or make a sandwich. If it gets to that you’re going to choose smoke another Bowl! I know this because I stopped smoking weed for over 10 years gain the weight
    back. I started smoking again and now I’m at the lightest I’ve ever been.

  • well that doctor looks really stupid now after extensive research on rats it has been shown that there is a positive correlation between weed and weightloss.

  • Heya, The best success that I have ever had was with Marks magic method (i found it on google) Without a doubt the most incredible diet that I have ever tried.

  • I always wondered why in American weight loss program people would aim straight at stomach reduction procedure. In my country we have similar TV series, however, the short+cut isn’t an option. Participants have to go through a year/two-long journey to lose weight naturally via physical training, nutrition program, psychological consultation, cosmetology sometimes. However, I began seeing more and more bariatric surgeries on our tv too. I guess it is a vogue

  • The last question is very important. Can someone elaborate more? My father has stage 4 kidnei CA, the nutritionist is giving him prowey me and I think is accelerating the grout of the CA. Thanks.

  • WONDERFUL WORK… wish you were president of the US, head of the FDA, CDC, WHO, AMA!
    Wish we knew how to clone you, but glad you are trying to clone your beautifully presented information with these videos.
    Now how do we get all those agencies to understand there’ will still plenty of money to be made in Pharma no matter how well people eat, supplement,,sleep, meditate, exercise, sunbathe, shower and stress manage?
    No money in it?
    There’s plenty of money to be made and saved in vitamins and all of these things.

  • Deborah’s son says they were too poor to eat healthful foods. That’s a giant misconception. It’s cheaper to buy fast food than a balanced restaurant meal. But it’s just as cheap or cheaper to cook healthful meals at home than to buy fast food. It’s just that it’s inconvenient. And even at McDonald’s, you can make healthful choices. We need to stop blaming poverty for obesity. It’s contradiction in terms.

  • It’s not a myth �� I know a lot of people that dropped a perfect amount of weight while smoking weed �� they actually look kinda good

  • My sister and I both gave up smoking without any props. We used willpower which seems to have died out after the second world war.

  • “If the doctors said I had a 25% chance to make it out of this surgery, I would say yes”
    That would be terrifying to have surgery where the odds are better of you not making it. Of course, the doctors would never do bariatric surgery with those odds unless the person looked just a month or two away from death.

  • Thank you for your contrbution to the collective..Boosting immune system is the best means to protect yourself at this time.. As a Health and wellness coach, I love nothing more than to help to enlighten other. here is my piece https://youtu.be/CcaXbeV_Q-M

  • this doctor dont know what he talkn bout he didnt do no research he was just say stuff cause he is a doctor and he dont kno nun about marijuana he just say stuff he heard or grew up hering about marijuana so donnt belive this doctor its alot of research and theres proof that marijuana smokers bodys are slimmer then regular ppl who dont smoke it

  • Ya I gained 40lbs from stopping smoking in 1 year I look older and body always aches, so I just started smoking it again, it’s only been 4 days and I feel a ton better, my depression from weight gain is getting better to. Fat people lose weight and skinny people gain weight. It just reverses any ill factors in your body if your fat you’ll lose if your to skinny you’ll gain. Just start asking around. So many people and celebritys smoke it in secret, it’s a wonderful secret too

  • Don’t you just love it when parents blame their failures and poor life choices on their children? Babies do make themselves, after all. And who says they quite literally have 0 decision making power? And what do you mean they aren’t capable of deciding whether they’ll even be allowed to live in the first place? Pshaw! That’s crazy talk! And you know good and well those little crotch goblins know exactly what they’re doing to their mother’s body. Deborah is the baby endgame. I thought everyone knew that? I mean, The Omen? The Exorcist? Village of the Damned? Those weren’t fiction, people.

    Seriously, though… I’m only here braving the comment section, slopping through muck and mire, for updates, but I just couldn’t help myself. Blaming your super-morbid obesity anything on your child just rubbed me all sorts of the wrong way. Children are innocents and true victims and it really hacks me off when people take advantage of that. ( ͡❛ ︹ ͡❛)

  • Just like E cigarettes that the NHS in endorses to give up smoking however I had an asthma attack when someone blew smoke on me and had to go to the hospital

  • Woman’s body system already contains the fat loss hormone, what you need to do is to make your weight-loss hormone working, this process called Metabolic Override. And then, you will get slimmer simply without restricting the foods you crave most

  • He looks so unhealthy and malnourished. If he would simply listen to his body and eat animals, he would not need to read all of those bullshit studies. He would look healthy and I could take him seriously. This guy is a fool.

  • I been full vegetarian for 5 years. Lost so much fat & never gained it back. This informative video is really making me cross over to vegan! End of the month

  • Damn, 3 years ago I really believed in his work, I thought he was telling the true truths about nutrition. Then at some point I learnt how real research works. And now all I see here is a crap ton of BULLSHIT. It may sound all informative and helpful, but he’s mixing facts with nonsense in such a way that people without a scientific background can’t tell the difference. Shame that Google gave him a platform to spread this shit even further.

  • Sadly we are still misled by the government and our recommended diets are still SAD!!! It is so difficult to get patients to understand how much they can do for themselves by just eating a plant based diet!

  • Today in this time of crisis due to COVID19

    I was scared because of my immune system was down due to my Hiv status. people are very alert to boost there immunity and are trying different things to stay healthy and safe. Stress not to wonder what is the best.

    Here I found the best Herbal cure to make me Negative again. (Dr kanayo 14 days herbal cure) if you don’t believe research on your internet. it was recommended to me by a lady who used it to cure her diabetes and herpes.

    Here is a very good source. https://drkanayonaturalcure.com/product/14-days-negative-hiv-cure/ I know this article will be very helpful

  • 1.Vitamin B12 breakthrough for more complete Vegetarian and Vegan diets”
    A team, led by Professor Martin Warren at the University’s School of Biosciences, has proved that common garden cress can indeed take up cobalamin.

    The amount of B12 absorbed by garden cress is dependent on the amount present in the growth medium, and the Kent team was able to confirm B12 uptake by showing that the nutrient ends up in the leaf.”

    2. EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is much healthier that canola oil.

  • it’s sad watching these people try to eat healthy but they are still picking up masses of processed foods thinking its good for them. And diet products are full of sugar which undermines them.

  • I did not like the long background to get the conclusion. Data can be explained quickly and focus on the solutions to avoid be lost in the details.

  • it’sa great thing to look at every day How not to die! really motivating if you do these things it cuts your risk by 15 % Great Dr

  • “Debbie eats more than 3,000 calories a day.” I mean yeah, that’s a lot, but she HAS to be eating double that amount or more to sustain 460 lbs.

  • It’s lengthy video..from comments I learn that.. vegetarian food is good for health and to live healthy for more time..so thanks for comments..you all saved my time..thank you all

  • If you want to learn more about the scientific pioneers of this kind of research, you might be interested in hearing about dr. Marie Maynard Daly’s work.

  • its all depends on how much weed you smoke or eat i use to smok weed i did it for a year every day i started smoking at 210 pounds and after a year i was stop smoking i was 150 pounds so weed makes you lose weight for sure

  • Not so fast, Dr. Greger! Of course, a plant-based diet will help prevent coronavirus. “Underlying conditions” are the reason most die of COVID-19. Those underlying conditions? Let’s see, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer -on and on. Treat (cure) the underlying conditions and we are stronger and our immune systems can fight off germs & viruses more aggressively.

  • This guy needs to debate dr. Jason Fung the Canadian kidney specialist
    who is all about high fat/low carb…lots of his videos on You tube
    2 doctors quoting studies that prove their case and arguing for the opposite diet
    So hard for the layman to sort out what to do

  • You mean a lot of tortillas involved in getting you to that point. Why do latino people in their culture encourage obesity in children as if it’s cute? You’re ruining their health and future. It’s not a child’s fault. That’s an excuse. My mom had me and my sister and lost all the weight within a few years afterwards. By going to the gym and getting divorced.

  • I know this one girl, name aries from school she used to be fat before she started smoking, then when she started smoking marijuana she lossed so much weight

  • Less muscle than a ten year old girl, low testosterone, weak frame, myopia, squeaky voice, baldness, brain fog. This surely looks like an authority figure on health and longevity. What are his recommendations based on? Epidemiology on garbage in garbage out models. Rodent studies. Misinterpreted, cherry picked trials with low participation numbers. And a big dosage of argumentum ad aerecundiam.

    I should get into the confidence trickster business. If that clown can pull it off, anybody can.

  • yes, i like his humor. although i have had to get used to his delivery. check out his website https://nutritionfacts.org/ and his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/NutritionFactsOrg. i subscribe to everything he posts.

  • Just stop eating garbage, you cant just be morbidly obese you have to keep fueling it to not lose weight, eat right and you’ll lose weight

  • I’ve been vegan for 6 years. In that time: my asthma is completely under control, I haven’t had a lung infection ( I used to get them 3x a year, I haven’t had a UTI, my blood pressure is normal, and I just over all feel amazing. But I make sure to take my B12 and vegan DHA.

  • These low-fat morons aggressively pushing unnatural low-fat diet caused an explosion of heavily processed junk and the epidemic of obesity. Now they realized their mistake and instead of looking at the data and correcting, they doubled down. Now it’s not enough to eat the low-fat Mediterranean. Now you need to be low-fat vegan. Nobody eats like this, it’d disgusting, unnatural and wrong.

  • I thought weed acts as a weight loss if you don’t eat when you get the munchies because your body is telling it’s self it needs food so it starts to burn fat.

  • See like I’m all down to cut down on meat eating….but the alternatives taste horrible. I think I dislike more vegetables than like by a ratio of 4:1. There’s maybe 3 I can think of I actually think don’t taste disgusting.

  • I do eat primarily fruits and vegetables and nuts and I love sourdough bread with my havarti cheese and I’m not cutting that out. I also like to eat meat on occasion. I eat boiled eggs as well

  • Cheers for the Video clip! Apologies for butting in, I would love your thoughts. Have you thought about Lantslay Bigger Man Domination (probably on Google)? Ive heard some decent things about it and my old buddy Taylor at last said ta ta to the small penis with it.

  • Seeing this video I just have to share this because I spent several years jumping from diet to diet without getting any real results until I discovered Dianas magic plan (i found it on google). It is without a doubt the most weight loss that I have ever achieved and I have not put it back on to this day.

  • Good for you David! That is the attitude you need to get through this. Would have loved to see his whole journey. The mother with the daughters having a 65 pound hernia? Did she mean tumor? I’m happy she lost 100 pounds. It will be good for her children as well.

  • This is so true
    My sister left her tongue be re-injured for seven months without going back to the dentist and now has stage 2 tongue cancer and has had to have surgery had her lymph notes out and radiation therapy it will take her years to recover all because she didn’t go to the dentist to get it checked out properly. Also it’s rubbish food like cardboard rye Ryvita but she is overweight so that makes sense if you have more cells there is more likelihood you would get cancer. So it seems like our lifestyles of the problem and the fact that we ignore her health at the expense of not having to deal with it
