Men & Recommended Weight Ranges, Diet & Health Tips

The man who is 6' 4" is a very tall guy. That height towers over my own 5' 0". I say this to make a quick comparison. When I gain even 2-3 pounds, it is highly visible. Five pounds or more - even worse. And when I was morbidly obese about twenty years ago before I achieved permanent weight loss success, I looked rather freakish. Every little pound makes the short person look wider and wider. They cannot hold a lot of excess weight without looking huge. It's just that way, and yes - I wish I could change that, but I can't.

For the 6' 4" tall man, the same applies when they gain an enormous amount of weight. Sure, it requires a lot of weigh before folks start to notice that 'so in so' got fat. But once the pounds pile on to that stage, if the individual keeps gaining - it's just going to be challenging to shrink back down to size.

The tall male who becomes morbidly obese is much like the petite  morbidly obese woman - very out of proportion and they stand out in a crowd more than those of more average height. We stand out anyway, but even more so when we get fat. And the fatter we become, the more we are noticed, and generally not in a good way.
