Is 21 years old and 350 pounds severely overweight?

Hey so I'm a 21 year old guy, weighing in at 350 pounds at 6' 1". I don't really exercise or work out, so I guess my routine is basically sedentary. Not gonna lie, my diet consists of either burgers or pizza or cookie dough haha. To be honest though, I feel pretty comfortable and don't feel the need to lose weight. But how long can I keep this up. I mean, my family doesn't have a history of diabetes or anything so I should be fine right?

Hi JimmyXXXXL ,

Thanks for posting on the forum, its a great way of meeting other people with experience of health issues who often have a wealth of information and advice.

Diet and exercise is often key to a general sense of well being alongside all the physical benefits to living a healthier lifestyle. Unfortunately there can often be a lot of confusion surrounding the information out there and finding a good source is key, have a look at some of our blogs on losing weight here which may help you http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/ta ... eight.php/. also here http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/ta ... s/diets.ph

Also it may be worth signing up here for our wellbeing support programme too, where you will receive lots of bite sized information over a 19 week period, you can click here for more information; http://www.talkhealthpartnership.com/psp/wellbeing.php

Hope this helps,

Regards,
