Obesity is a condition of excessive fat accumulation and is a major risk factor for a number of chronic diseases.

  • Thank you
    I’m very overweight and dealing with lyme disease and other illnesses. Have a hard time finding a good beginning stage due to the weight and pain. This is a good start! ♡

  • I dropped 10 lbs in by following this yoga guide “Yοmzοzο Kena” (Google it). The images are very helpful and a must for any yoga guidebook. This handbook additionally shows you some positions, which are different enough to satisfy both novices and help even more advanced yoga practitioners develop..

  • Fat chance his intervention will do any good, his whole public life is being carefully controlled from the darkness and many are being fattened for the vaccine killings. Slim chance food shortages may ‘lower, or flatten the curves’ though, through the Great Deception: biggest Deception since T Rex.

  • Please please please I request to make fruit, veg, seeds, nuts free for everyone Boris! this will help obesity and poor family’s. Nobody should be deprived of food Thankyou

  • In September 2019 I looked like a lumpy sack of potatoes and weighed 160 (I’m 5’4 so I didn’t exactly look good) now August 2020 I’m a healthy 135 I do some sort of workout everyday I’m a lot stronger I look better and just generally feel better and have more energy. All it took was me not being a lazy sack of shit anymore ������������

  • Funk Roberts was saying there are four main factors. Insulin, Oestrogen, Cortisol and inflammation. Never exercise for more than half an hour at a time and the resting period between sets should not be overlooked.
    Also, muscle tissue provides a third reservoir for fat so strength training is important if you want to lose fat.

  • I’m 15 years old and I wouldn’t necessarily say I’m fat but i have chub that I wanna lose I’ve been trying but I keep failing idk what to do anymore I’m feeling depressed about it and can’t find motivation to keep going

  • The governments couldn’t care less if the people of UK are fat or skinny.. food tax is probably on the way up! Remember what j.oliver did

  • If Boris was serious about l using weight m, he take a leaf from Tom Watson, Labour former vice.
    He reverse his diabetis, give up Hybradused wheat and read Wheat Belly by Cardiologist Dr. William Davies and get a bouncer, learn more about HII, High, intensity, interval Training.Wird of Warning your doctors, nutritionion will not like you to give up the drogues that comes from Hybradused Wheat that comes from Ohio USA.

  • Joe: You can’t bs a bser
    This dude: challenge accepted.

    Fat people are fat because they consume more calories than they burn off. If thats not the starting point of this conversation you are being deceptive. Saying they eat like everyone else, that is deceptive.

  • Best best best! Just loved it!
    I used to do same asanas before but left it for some reason! At that time also I lost considerably good amount of weight! You guys just made me recall all asanas! Thanx!

  • Damn this dude Peter is so damn smart……I’m mesmerized. I’ve had to lose weight about every 4 or 5 years…as I get older it becomes more of a challenge.

  • Ahh, so glad to hear that Boris is taking action on obesity. He can start by getting off his fat ar%e, lose more weight, take up exercise and eat healthily! Lead by example Boris! Now, this business where you and the tories are allowing the US to get their grubby paws on the NHS…..

  • The coming food shortages and price hikes are going to be so severe that the government are preempting criticisms by having skinny (starving) people represent positive health consequences of their policy! Boris Johnson is marketing famine to the people.

  • I am not a fan of Boris or the Conservative party but credit where due. It is a tiny scratch on the surface of this epidemic of disease caused by the foods we eat, but it is something. What he needs to do is stop funding the almighty meat and diary industry (true cost of a Big Mac £12 without subsidies from the government) The myth created by the meat and diary industry that healthy foods are expensive is part of this issue. The extra time it took for me to research and find foods that are cheap and healthy was WAY less than the time (and cost) it takes being sick. My grocery bill has gone down just like my weight and it really wasn’t that hard. If this gets people thinking outside of reaching for a snack bar what’s bad about it?

  • You’re a polished opal in a pewter world my dear friend…I could not agree more! Thank you Dr Kathy for devoting your passions to improving our “culture” of health.

  • Shame on Cathy Newman for her inaccurate summaries of Peterson’s statements on Jan 16, 2018. Condemn and criticize Cathy Newman with severe strength, and may she have bad health, bad marriage, and kids who don’t love her. Cathy Newman be damned!

  • omg obese beginners cant do this, the motions themselves are not even the main issue, the video speeds through things, saying 10 times each direction, while the model does 4-6 then moves on, leaving you with the choice of trying to do super fast or skip to the next thing with her…also, if you alternate between sitting and standing and sitting and standing like that, give the big ppl time to get off of and back onto the floor one cannot be hitting buttons and pausing and unpausing while also struggling and panting off the floor wtf…people are going to watch this and think ok yoga is not fat friendly, but it is not yoga, it is this video

  • I put on weight last few years and have half heartedly tried dieting, exercise. I also secretly ate (something I wouldn’t admit until now), started eating lil better and mostly drinking water no longer fizzy regular exercise and some weights. Guess what???? Losing fat. When I lied about my efforts I either stayed the same or got fatter now I’m genuinely making the effort my fat is reducing. Simple.

  • I mean if you think about it this way: if there was no fast food, sodas, chips, fried foods, etc. let’s pretend everyone was eating healthy and similar amounts (appropriate portions for age/size) everyone’s body would still be different! Some people would be bigger, some would be smaller, some would be the same height but weigh differently. All bodies process and metabolize differently. Now throw in the lack of teaching nutritional information AT ALL and giving the public mass access to all different types of junk food that’s much cheaper than healthier options, what else can we expect? Not to mention ON TOP OF ALL THAT the junk food is fucking addictive. So we set up the majority of our population for major and rapid weight gain and turn around and make fun off people for being overweight.

  • Dismissing it as simply being predisposed ignores the fact that the rest of the world is not as fat as Americans. Go visit another country and tell me they just have different genetics. Most of us are descended from Europeans, so why are there virtually no fat people in Holland? China? Scandinavian countries? We’re fat because of fast food, frappuccinos, sugar, HF corn syrup, fritos, etc…

  • They should put the price of food up 10x, that’ll learn the fat people, especially the poor ones! Some of them might even start to look attractive!

  • To eat healthy do u know how expensive it is..
    And to eat cheap processed food is cheap.. they’re not making sense what they’re saying…
    Just look at the supermarket shelf…
    I Have Nothing further to say on this matter,
    The agreed for profit why we have obesity..
    They will never stop making processed food giving people cancer and diseases…
    Not to mention heart attacks to…

  • If MPs in parties have interests in tobacco, brewing or fast food, they will vote accordingly.
    It’s self interest. Ken Clarke had interests in Tobacco so he spoke on their behalf. He wasn’t doing it on behalf of the people. There are other cases.
    Look at your MP and take an interest in their interests and backers. Look at their voting record.

  • u do need a bit of fat on you it helps your body for energy boost.if u go under weigh then say like you are around 12 stone and say 6ft tall and look slim, but if you lose 3 stone and go down to 9 stone then your immune system wont help fight flus and cold,s so Eating a healthy, balanced diet which is rich in whole foods, fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds; is important for a healthy immune system. A large part of your immune system is in your digestive tract therefore it is essential to keep your intestinal lining healthy and functioning well

  • Most car journeys are under five miles. That’s a walkable distance. Get serious about public health = get serious about exercise= get serious about carfree cities.

  • Funny, im a 34 year old man, pretty good shape, worked out since i was 13, was never really a cardio fan, only weights…. start doing cardio 10 ago and i went from 158 pounds to 153 pounds. I also skip breakfast (intermittent fasting if you will. I eat only a big lunch with carbs protein and fats roughly about 1400 calories and then snack at around 6 pm with a fruit bowl with some peanut butter containing about 350 calories.

  • None of this strategy will work. It is not ignorance that causes unhealthy eating choices, it is the deconstruction of guilt and shame in lieu of hedonism and narcissism.

    People simply don’t care if they are gluttonous and greedy.

  • Carbssome people do not process carbs wellinsulin resistance and NAFLD. the older you are the more the next. Is broken. Trad calorie counting diets keep them on carbs which fuel hungerwrong. Keto is the only way.

  • The further your food travels, and the more highly it is processed and packaged, before you eat it, the less nutritional value it has. Also the more expensive it is. Also the longer its shelflife.
    The public interest, (good nutrition,) and the producersprocessorsretailers’ interests (profit,) lie in opposite directions.
    The Government has always sided with private profit over public health.

  • Nice asanas, as an obese person these are mostly doable for me. I have been practicing yoga for about 6 months and my biggest weaknesses are getting my knees close to my chest as my stomach is in the way but as I practice I see improvement.

  • This is all just waffle. It’s calories in calories out. Look at people in concentration camps. They are all skinny. There is not one of those people who ‘just doesn’t lose weight’. You want to lose weight? Eat hardly anything and see what happens.

  • Too fast. Makes it impossible to keep up with the instructions. One can not keep on pausing a video after couple of minutes before proceeding to next pose.

  • I was getting sick of the brothers talk about how much they love crossfit. Seemed like the past 4 podcasts were crossfit related. I don’t know what a wad or toaster bar is nor do i care. i feel like crossfit already gets enough coverage over the brothers channels.
    This podcast on the other hand was very entertaining and inspiring. I’d love to see more podcasts that feature a wider variety of athletes and experts in their fields not just old mate from down the road.
    Also try and get bro science on here.

  • Probably one of your worst videos. Sticking a pillow on a person to model someone who is overweight only addresses those overweight people who carry the bulk of their weight in their stomach. You presented a stereotypical view people who are overweight and, I suspect, helped only those who specifically carry their weight in their stomachs.

  • Haven’t moved past the intro, I wanted to say thank you for NOT throwing out “lose weight” it may be true, but it isn’t helpful. So thank you for knowing that.

  • Boris ‘the kipper’ blojob is a worzel gummidge for the 21st century because I left the mop on the terrace this morning and then I saw it later on claiming to be the prime minister and pontificating on the need to lose weight

  • Hi I have a question. Im a dancer and when im stretching doing a lunge with my left leg in front and then i push forward to stretch my hip flexors, i feel pain almost like a blockage in my hip and it really hurts. I have no problems on my right side. The same pain ocvurs when i lie on my back and bring my left bent leg up into my chest a blockage type of pain thats how i would describe it. Ive tried to find videos on youtube but it doesnt seem to be helping. Any ideas on what could be wrong and how i could fix it??

  • I tried to follow this video but as an obese person there are a number of issues. First, I have a very limited range of mobility so I need straps etc to aid me. I have a large belly and leg lifts especially holding while on the mat is difficult, couldn’t you put in a modification? Obese people have very bad knees, some wiyhout cartilage due to years of carrying excessive weight so resting on the knees is out of the question. The sequences go from mat to standing back to mat without transitions. I recommend you have the excersie model strap on two weighted pillows onto her mid section and sand paper onto her kneed then have her try these poses, if you’d done that first, you would have a made a much better, more useful video for an actual obese person.

  • I’m wondering how does obesity relate to coronavirus? I’m confused…�� I suppose he’s trying to protect us from eating unhealthy food and eating unhealthy foods may be the reason of the virus.

  • How does have calories on the menu something bd for anorexic people. It’s good for them. That’s just stupid. In the US weve already made it law that restaurants a d fast food places all show how many calories everything has. The UK is way behind the US in this.

  • We are all fellow humans and we are all the same colour under the skin. We should all therefore love one another as brothers. We must each abandon all thoughts of religion (including that of the Pope and Christianity) and live our lives only by the true teaching of Immanuel (called Jesus) – For he is the Son of man and the true prophet, sent by the Lord our God, to be always our one Teacher and to set us free from all religions…

    In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
    Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.
    This is how you should pray:
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
    Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
    Give us today our daily bread,
    Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
    And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
    For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.
    For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (At Matthew 6: 6-15) –

    “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (Jesus, at John 4: 24) –

    “Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (Matthew 7: 1-2) –

    “Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (Matthew 7: 15-16) –

    “I am the light of the world. No follower of mine shall wander in the dark; he shall have the light of life.” – (Jesus, at John 8: 12) –

    “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
    Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 12-14) –

    “Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) –

    “I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.
    The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

    “I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –
    “Whoever then will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

    “I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

    “The disciples came and asked Jesus, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’ He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

    “Though many are called, few are chosen,” – (Matthew 22: 14) –

    “An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.
    Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –
