5 Obesity Advantages – How is Obesity a Good Thing?

[ad_1]

Is obesity a good thing and how is obesity a good thing? It may sound odd and contrary to general beliefs but there are some obesity advantages out there. A few of these can’t be met while at normal weight or even overweight. Let’s find out what these five obesity advantages are.

1) Certain types of work are only catered to the obese:

There are jobs where an obese individual is suited for more than a normal weight person or someone who’s just overweight. An example of this could be an acting job. Say there’s a story with a character who’s obese playing a big part. The only person who’ll probably fill the role of that character is… someone who’s obese.

2) Stronger Bones/Muscles:

This can be considered as one of the advantages of obesity. The reason being that any attempt at exercising, even a casual walk can contribute to this. Certain gym activities such as lifting weights also help with obese people having strong bones and muscles.

3) More warmth is possible:

This is due to the excessive body fat alleviating heat loss from an obese person’s body into the air especially in cold environments. The fat has a tendency to keep some blood from getting closest to the skin where it can lose heat rapidly. This is why excessive clothing is worn, to trap body heat for constant warmth. As an extension to point 2 above, putting on more muscle provides a similar benefit where it can be a heat source while exercising and provide great insulation while resting.

4) Size… does it matter?

This seems to be more of a feature than one of the advantages of obesity but there are some people who are proud of their hugeness and put it to some use. That makes it an advantage for them.

5) Even the obese can lose weight:

The most important when it comes to obesity advantages is that the weight can be lost. It’s more important than all the previous advantages listed combined. Even overriding the disadvantages of obesity but only if this losing weight obesity advantage is consistently applied. Obesity mostly results from consuming more calories than required consistently. The excessive weight can be lost over a period of time by frequently burning more calories through exercise while not consuming more calories than your body needs.

Obviously if you aren’t obese and are at normal weight its way more beneficial health wise to keep yourself that way. Exercise and healthy eating are still essential for maintaining a healthy body. Of all the obesity advantages listed, number 5 is the most important. If you don’t bring your weight down significantly, many health dangers resulting from obesity will set in sooner or later.

Jameela Jamil stars as Tahana Al-Jamil in the US comedy set in the afterlife

Jameela Jamil is in a good place right now.

Well, she is – quite literally – in The Good Place, the hit sitcom set in the afterlife that’s just reached the UK.

Her major role as Tahani Al-Jamil in the show, also starring Cheers star Ted Danson and Frozen’s Kristen Bell, has seen her hailed for her comic timing and on-screen presence. She’s writing a book and there’s a film role on the cards.

All this from someone who had never acted before and was previously best known for co-hosting Channel 4 teen show T4 and then BBC Radio 1’s chart show.

We FaceTimed her to find out about all of the above – as well as finding out why she’s a “weasel”, who she based the “narcissistic nightmare” Tahani on and her plans to become US president.

“Wait – is that Jameela Jamil from T4??”

That’s a pretty standard question on Twitter from British viewers who are just getting hooked on NBC show The Good Place, screened on Netflix here, and surprised to find a familiar face on the screen.

While it launched in the US a year ago, the first series landed in the UK in one go last month with little fanfare, with new episodes in the second series coming every week.

‘I got lucky’

“It’s been really cool to watch it unravel,” she says. “Because the UK only got the show this year, everyone probably thought I was dead. But I got very lucky.”

Very lucky is a bit of an understatement.

She moved to LA with no plans to act, but instead “to read and DJ and maybe just do a radio show again” and “travel around”.

“I just wanted to see more of the world and experience new things and make the most of my youth.”

But it seems the world had other plans, starting with her very first audition for what would turn out to be The Good Place, but all she was told that Mike Schur from Parks and Recreation was behind it.

“I was told about an audition for this role and said ‘no way, I’ve no training and I’m surrounded by people who’ve devoted their lives to this’.

“My agents pushed me into it and said ‘let’s see if you can act, if you can’t act we won’t send you to another one’.”

Diverse cast

The audition was “very cloak and daggers”. All she knew was that the character was British, because the team wanted a cast that was “as diverse and different as possible”.

“I hoped it wouldn’t turn out to be a porno,” she jokes.

“But he [Mike Schur] seemed not to be into that. I don’t think there’s anyone else in Hollywood I’d have trusted to sign up for, when it was so secretive.”

She was so amazed to get a second audition, she thought “all the actresses in Hollywood must have flu”.

Incidentally when she got the phone call, at 10pm on a Friday night, she was in the middle of an “anxiety walk” while waiting to hear about the role. She was so overwhelmed to get the part that she had to lie down. In the middle of the pavement. In the middle of West Hollywood.

“I’ve never been so floored. I mean, I’ve started my first acting job opposite Ted Danson and Kristen Bell,” she says.

“I’m a top-level blagger. I feel like my whole career has been one giant blag.”

The show centres on Eleanor Shellstrop, played by Bell, a more-naughty-than-nice woman who, having accidentally ended up in heaven (aka The Good Place), tries to earn her place there by being good.

This version of heaven doesn’t have fluffy clouds and angels playing the harp, but instead, flying lessons, houses designed to reflect your personality, and lots of frozen yoghurt shops. Seriously, they’re everywhere.

She says her “mind was blown” when she finally learned what The Good Place was about.

‘Comedy kept me sane’

“The whole thing has been bananas,” she adds, sounding not quite as posh as Tahani. “Absolutely terrifying. There’s not been a day I’ve not been going – ‘that’s Ted Danson, that’s Ted Danson’.

“The first season was surreal. I was taking a golf buggy through Universal every day, seeing parts of the Jurassic Park set and knowing Friends was filmed in that lot.

“I managed to somehow take it in my stride. When I left on the last day, I said a very casual goodbye, and ‘it’s all right if you don’t bring me back’. And then I burst into tears and cried all the way home.”

Jameela says comedies were a “lifeline” when she was ill

Asked what was so overwhelming, she explains that when she was 17 she was hit by a car and didn’t leave her house in more than a year.

“All I had to keep me company was NBC comedies. They kept me sane in the darkest times of my life.

“I could never have foreseen getting my life back to normal – let alone being in one of these sitcoms that had been so therapeutic and soothing to me, and hopefully soothing people myself.

“These comedies were my lifeline, and now it’s gone full circle.”

‘Too much to bear’

And there are weird coincidences.

Ted Danson – who plays Michael, the otherworldly being who designed The Good Place – was one of those comedy actors she’d watch, in Cheers, and Kristen Bell was her first celebrity interviewee on T4.

“It was too much to bear,” she says of her meltdown. “I was hysterical. I felt completely traumatised at how lucky I was.”

Tahani may look sweet, but is “passive agressive” and a “nightmare”, says Jameela

Jameela describes Tahani – who is Eleanor’s neighbour and, to her annoyance, lives in a mansion and is ever so slightly condescending – as a “passive aggressive, well-intentioned narcissistic nightmare”.

“I based her quite heavily on someone I know who’s a narcissistic nightmare – and now I’m really afraid because it’s on in the UK.

“I was told it would never be shown in the UK so I felt quite safe, like the weasel I am,” she says. “Now I’m afraid to come back.”

‘Insane cameos’

She says she worried British viewers knew her too well.

“I fully expected hesitation,” she says. “I didn’t expect people to give me a chance.”

She also promises some “insane cameos” coming up and reveals exclusively: “I get to kiss someone on the show. The first one on screen, and the seventh ever for me.”

It looks like there may well be a third series, says Jameela, who signed a seven-year contract for the show meaning she’ll be in Hollywood for the foreseeable future.

She says she finds America has “a very healthy attitude to women, and women of colour”.

And it seems she has taken to America as much as it has taken to her – she admits she initially expected to see headlines like: “English woman ruins sitcom”.

‘Everything else is cake’

So what does she put her success down to?

“I’m not ambitious, but I’m very tenacious,” she says. “I never think I’ll get something, but I’m willing to try.

“That’s my victory, the willingness to give it a go. Everything else is cake.”

She’s waiting to hear about a film role and is writing a book, based on the columns she wrote for Company magazine. Life seems pretty good, but what else is next?

“Will I be president in three years, will I realise a rap album?” she teases. “Who knows? It feels like the opportunities are endless.”

‘Fixer Upper’ star Joanna Gaines says the couple might not be done with TV for good

[ad_1]

Chip and Joanna Gaines are stepping away from their hit HGTV series “Fixer Upper” after the latest season. However, the duo aren’t completely ruling out the idea of returning to TV at some point in the future.

Speaking to People, Joanna, 39, was asked if they’re closing the doors on television for good once they finish Season 5 of “Fixer Upper.”

“It isn’t inconceivable,” she says in the latest issue of the magazine. “We’re entrepreneurs at heart, so we’ll always be looking forward to what’s next. As it relates to TV, you just never know.”

As previously reported, the stars have maintained that the end of “Fixer Upper” doesn’t mean that they’re finished with their other business ventures, specifically renovating homes in Waco, Texas.

“We aren’t done renovating homes. We aren’t done designing things to make your home your favorite place on earth. We aren’t done working towards restoration in all things or helping out those who could use a hand. In fact, in all of these things, we’re just getting started,” the couple wrote in a blog post announcing the show’s end.

Despite rumors about a strain on their marriage leading to the end of their time with HGTV, they remain adamant that their connection is strong and that the goal of this is simply to take a step back for them to catch their breath and focus on raising their children. However, fans of the show can apparently take solace in the fact that they might not have to go without the Gaines couple on their TV screens for too long.

The fifth and final season of “Fixer Upper” will air in November followed by a spin off titled “Behind the Design.”

Kim Kardashian Calls Caitlyn Jenner ”Shady” & ”Not a Good Person” Over O.J. Simpson Story in Her Book: ”She Is a Liar!”

[ad_1]

Caitlyn Jenner has landed herself in hot water once again. In this preview from Sunday’s premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian finds out some controversial things Cait has included in her memoir.

“It says in Caitlyn’s book Robert Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty but joined the defense team to get back at his remarried ex,” Kim reads aloud to her sisters. “Robert told Caitlyn in secret after the O.J. murder trial that he believed his friend was guilty.” “That’s not true. Like, what?” Khloe Kardashian says.

“Dad so believed in him,” Kim adds. “Like to sell a book, you’re gonna make something up?” Kourtney Kardashian reacts. “It is so shady that Caitlyn came over and gave me the book and then on the phone she said, ‘Well, the final version has a few more things in it.

But don’t worry, it’s nothing about you.’ So she lied to me because that is about me if it’s about our dad,” Kim says, later adding, “If you talk about my dad I will cut you.” “I have always had Caitlyn’s back,” a saddened Kim says. “She is a liar. She is not a good person.”

‘His Hip’s Good to Go’

… Says BFF Jason Terry

9/1/2017 12:35 AM PDT

EXCLUSIVE

Time for a medical update on Isaiah Thomas‘ hip … courtesy of his good friend (and former NBA player) Jason Terry

Obviously, IT’s hip has been all over the news — with the Cavs almost pulling out of a trade with the Celtics due to concerns over the injury he suffered in the playoffs. 

So, we spoke with Terry — who’s super tight with Thomas — and he essentially told Cavs fans to CHILLLLLLL … the hip is solid. 

In fact, Terry says Isaiah is so good, the Cavs should build the whole team around him if LeBron James bails again … and if that happens, “The Brink’s truck WILL come out.”
