November Fast Facts from the OAC

  • When weight-loss occurs, body mass decreases and very commonly your basal metabolic rate (BMR) decreases. At this point, your caloric needs changed.
  • Individuals affected by obesity have an increased risk of low vitamin D levels. As a fat soluble vitamin, vitamin D is stored in fat tissue. When a person has too much fat tissue, their vitamin D is not as available for use throughout the body.
  • The overall goal for healthy eating is not to be completely fat-free, but to decrease the amount of fat consumed.
  • According to the American College of Sports Medicine’s Guidelines for Exercise Prescription, the recommendation for sustained weight-loss is 60-90 minutes of daily moderate to vigorous physical activity/exercise.
  • Overeating causes stomach distension which frequently leads to regurgitation and reflux.
