Not sure about success rates but I did read that if your BMI was under 25 your chances were greater for clearing the virus.
Lower BMI is associated with SVR. Newer thinking is that the waist/height ratio may be more relevant than BMI at least in terms of ideal body composition. Your height should be twice your weight in inches (or more), at least for men. Don't think this emphasis on belly fat was studied in terms of SVR but it couldn't hurt to lose any excess prior to treatment.
By this are you saying if im 70 inches tall i should weigh no less than 140 lbs?....you can also do good to your liver, it you have "fatty liver"that is...but my nurse says it dont make no diff....maybe it means non alcholic fatty liver?...any way ya slice it tho...grtting to a normal size is only gonna do ya good...i starrted my fat reduction diet today...i lost 4 lbs today......dont worry....i work hard
by tommorow after work ill be 205
im down to 2 apples a dy....not 3 lbs....sorry for using your thread Ram
Meant to say "waist", not weight :) So, if your height is 70 inches, than your waist (no sucking it in :) ) should be no more than 35 inches. BTW I doubt you lost 4lbs of fat today, probably most of it is water weight. Best to lose weight gradually anyway -- like 1-2 lbs per week. Not sure what your nurse means by "make no diff". A proper diet/weight loss program can help fatty liver
Overweight people tend to be insulin resistant.
Studies have shown that insulin resistance has a negative effect on success.
People with a healthy bmi are rarely insulin resistant.
I wear size 36 jeans...it was the 3 lbs of apples i unloaded.....LOL
