Low-fat or low-carb, which one do you prefer? Which one works best for you? Do you even know? Well you’re in luck if you don’t; a new study revealed that a genetic test can help people choose which diet is more effective in helping them lose weight. The study followed 133 overweight women for a year. All the women “with a genetic predisposition to benefit from a low-carbohydrate diet lost 2 1/2 times as much weight as those on the same diet without the predisposition,” reports Ron Winslow from The Wall Street Journal. Also, women with a “genetic makeup that favored a low-fat diet lost substantially more weight than women who curbed fat calories without low-fat genes,” says Winslow.Low-fat or low-carb, which one do you prefer?

Here’s Mariah Carey and her extra sized boobs attending the Oscars, because she can’t miss such a big event… no way, she needs media attention. Unfortunately for us, the sights she’s showing are not very impressive, i mean she is impressive in the way of proportion and obesity but other then that, i can’t find anything good on her. I guess being fat is a quality after all…

Immune cells, adipose tissue conspire in obese people to boost levels of potentially unhealthy proteins
In the heavyweight division, immune cells embedded in fat pack some extra disease-causing punches, a new study shows.
Those punches involve potentially dangerous proteins linked to inflammation, heart disease and diabetes. Something in the adipose tissue, or fat, of overweight people primes immune cells called macrophages nestled within the tissue to release the proteins when the cells sense high levels of fat in the bloodstream, researchers report in the Feb. 24 Science Translational Medicine. The discovery may lead to treatments that could block disease formation in overweight or obese people.
Blood levels of free fatty acids, such as triglycerides, rise after a high-fat meal and, in obese people, are often constantly elevated to levels two to three times higher than normal, says Preeti Kishore, an endocrinologist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.
In the new study, Kishore and her colleagues show that these types of fat particles prod immune cells called macrophages to make PAI-1, a protein linked to heart disease. The protein, whose full name is plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, keeps blood clots, which can cause strokes or heart attacks, from breaking up.
The fatty acids also triggered the release of inflammation-causing proteins called TNF-alpha and IL-6, the researchers found. Inflammation caused by those and other proteins is thought to play a role in type 2 diabetes in obese people.
Scientists had already discovered that overweight and obese people have more macrophages in their fat tissue than do lean people. But, says Carey Lumeng, a pediatrician at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, “Nobody really knew — and we still don’t know — what exactly these macrophages are doing.”
The new study suggests that macrophages may tell fat tissue what is going on in the outside environment, which the macrophages sense through substances circulating in the blood, Lumeng says. And fat cells seem to communicate with macrophages, too, priming the immune cells to rapidly respond to dietary changes.
Kishore and her colleagues studied 30 overweight people, with an average body mass index of 28 (a BMI of 25 to 29.9 is overweight, and 30 or higher is considered obese) and an average age of 37. The researchers steadied the volunteers’ blood sugar levels, then injected an intravenous solution containing free fatty acids in concentrations that mimic the higher levels seen in obese people. The fat infusion is a standard formula used when feeding people intravenously. Within five hours, levels of PAI-1 and inflammatory proteins rose and impaired the volunteers’ sensitivity to insulin. Insulin insensitivity is a hallmark of type 2 diabetes.
The researchers took biopsies of stomach fat from the volunteers and found that macrophages, rather than fat cells, made the disease-linked proteins.
In further experiments with macrophages grown in the laboratory, Kishore and her colleagues discovered that free fatty acids alone didn’t prod macrophages to release PAI-1 or inflammatory chemicals. The cells also needed an as-yet-unidentified signal from fat cells before the macrophages would manufacture the proteins.
“Inflammation is a normal, healthy process, but under certain conditions it becomes inappropriately activated,” Kishore says. As people pack on pounds, their macrophages become more sensitive to dietary signals. “When these macrophages are activated,” she says, “they make more of these proteins that are bad for you.”Immune cells, adipose tissue conspire in obese people to boost levels of potentially... more
Caroline McCarthy writes that Kevin Smith's response to being kicked off of a Southwest flight because he was "foo fat," "may be the best example we've seen yet of how Twitter and other forms of new-media mass communication are shaping that old industry known as public relations. Nobody walks around with a Twitter follower count or blog URL painted on his or her forehead, and many extremely popular bloggers still live in relative physical anonymity, which means that the customer relations business is like a game of Minesweeper--you can never be sure what might blow up in your face."

Kevin Smith continues to insist he is NOT too fat to fly Southwest Air. The airline removed him from a flight Saturday after deeming him a safety risk, even though he says he was seated with the armrests down and seat belt buckled.
Smith says the airline made a mistake in trying to board him as a standby passenger then giving him the boot.

He may like to make you laugh, but "Silent Bob" found nothing funny about being kicked off a plane for being fat.
Kevin Smith, director of the upcoming Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan laugher, "Cop Out," turned to Twitter to vent his frustrations Saturday after allegedly getting booted from a Southwest Airlines flight.
"I know I'm fat," the 39-year-old wrote via Twitter. "But was Captain Leysath [sic] really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated?"
The writer and director of "Clerks" and "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" let loose in the tweet tirade after allegedly being told by a flight attendant he was a "safety risk" as he was about to fly from Oakland to Burbank.
"I'm way fat," Smith tweeted, "But I'm not THERE just yet. But if I am, why wait til my bag is up, and I'm seated WITH ARM RESTS DOWN. In front of a packed plane with a bunch of folks who'd already I.d.ed me as 'Silent Bob'."
Southwest uses the armrests has a factor in determining whether a passenger must purchase an extra seat becauase of their size. According to their website, "It serves as the boundary between seats and measures 17 inches in width," it states.
"Customers who are unable to lower both armrests and/or who compromise any portion of adjacent seating should proactively book the number of seats needed prior to travel."
Smith wrote he was offered a $100 voucher by the airline, and noted he eventually flew on a Southwest flight despite the incident.

Obese Children Twice as Likely to Die Before 55, so remember teasing the fat kid is for his own goodObesity in children may pave the way to an early grave, a new study in the New England Journal of Medicine finds.
Obesity in children may pave the way to an early grave, a new from the New England Journal of Medicine finds.
The study, published Wednesday, followed nearly 5,000 American Indian children from childhood to middle age and found that those who were obese as children were more than twice as likely to die from disease before the age of 55.
This is the first large study to confirm that childhood obesity is a risk factor for long-term complications, though that is something experts have suspected for years.
Previously, research has only been able to show associations between early death and childhood obesity, said Dr. Nicholas Stettler, a pediatrician who specializes in nutrition and epidemiology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. But this study is more powerful, he said, because it further confirms a direct relationship between childhood obesity and long-term health complications.
In the study, children were measured for body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose from age 11 onward. High BMI and blood glucose levels were the strongest predictors of early death -- children with the highest BMI had double the risk of dying early when compared to those in the lower end of the BMI spectrum.

A foul-mouthed New Zealand surgeon has been reprimanded after swearing at a severely obese patient.
A 44-year-old mother filed a complaint about the doctor after a tense consultation with him last year, The New Zealand Herald reports.
The doctor said f--- at least three times to the Maori woman after she told him she didn't like the word "diet" and preferred the term "lifestyle".
He told her she was, "going on a f---ing diet".
In the letter of complaint, the woman wrote: "[The doctor] said if I couldn't handle the word diet then he challenged my motivation and stated that I would never survive surgery because I was still bullshitting myself and therefore my thinking was still f---ed".
In response to the woman's concerns, the doctor said they no longer had a "therapeutic relationship" and scratched her from the gastric bypass waiting list.
