Jul 20th 2009 1:50PM angela that weight you carry around should bother you . you may feel that you are healthy at that weight but trust me you probably aren't. there may be irreversible damage to your liver. i speak from experience , i was 365 lbs @ 5"8" and lost 230 pounds . I can lift heavy object and move without the discomfort i once endured. Unfortunately i didn't get myself "healthy" in time . I have cirrhosis of the liver, brought about by NAFLD [ non-alcoholic liver disease]
getting back to the subject of this discussion .. i don't think Dr. Benjamin is a good choice based on her weight. As a physician she should know about the risks associated with her obesity. I once thought cirrhosis was a disease related to alcoholism.
