Second chin - Page 2

post #16 of 26
I have a number of friends who are very skinny... my friend's brother is 6'3 and looks at times deathly ill at 140. I cannot even imagine what 125 looks like at this weight, was this a typo?

Again, this was not a typo. Average weight gain was about a pound every couple of years, until the recent explosion.

Dior Homme models. What is Jude Law's height/weight ratio?

that's kind of shocking... i can't believe 6'2 185 is overweight. even if you don't have much muscle mass. 185 seems just right or under the avg. unless you're going for the skinny look. Double chin... LIPO during your lunch break.

no man, Dior models are more than 120... my friend and his brother are so skinny you'd literally need a tweezer to pull skin off their body to do a caliper test. There's very skinny then there's skinny where Spielberg or Polansky calls you to be a corpse in their next Holocaust film.

As far as 185 being overweight, it might be for this guy. If he really was 125 at that height, he must have had very feminine features... tiny shoulders, little to no muscle mass and legs like a chicken. Nothing wrong with that at all, because it's 100x better than the opposite. I don't think he'll have much trouble getting back to a weight he's happy with.

Just do intense cardio and take up a sport. You'll be fine. If it doesn't go away, get 2 grand and just get it nipped. Plastic surgery has such a stigma that makes no sense at all. If you can justify Edward Greens, then you can justify getting a procedure done if it bothers you enough.

I hope it goes well for you either way, and if you manage to solve this problem soon, I'd like to hear how you did it.

I would be concerned.
Sudden weight gain at 21 is not something genetically predetermined.
Also, I have never heard about connection between premature babies and sudden weight gain in early twenties, seems not very plausible.
Set up an appointment to see your primary and discuss it with him.
I would make sure that your heart is ok (ECG) and endocrine system is checked. Blood test for glucose would not hurt.

If you would have read above, I have been to the doctor since. I have a clean bill of health. My last visit was 6 months ago.

Good for you. I am glad you took care of it.

6'2" 125 lbs. puts your old BMI at 16, which was the minimum recently set by Spain for models during their fashion week. It's still extremely thin.

Are you taking enough salt? I know this flies in the face of "popluar conventional medicine," but I think that a lot of people are salt deficient. Try supplementing with salt. Not refined table salt, but natural stuff like sea salt or Himalayan. I had a recollection of the relationship of salt and double chins and did a quick search. Here it is:

20. Salt is vital for reducing a double chin. When the body is short of salt, it means the body really is short of water. The salivary glands sense the salt shortage and are obliged to produce more saliva to lubricate the act of chewing and swallowing and also to supply the stomach with water that it needs for breaking down foods. Circulation to the salivary glands increases and the blood vessels become "leaky" in order to supply the glands with water to manufacture saliva. The "leakiness" spills beyond the area of the glands themselves, causing increased bulk under the skin of the chin, the cheeks and into the neck.

I take a teaspoon of salt in the morning and wash it down with 8 oz of water. It gives you an odd feeling that is a combination of calming and energizing. No increase of blood pressure since I started a few years ago.

Did the 60 pounds go primarily to your stomach, leaving you with skinny limbs? Or is it fairly well spread out? eg, how much is fat? It's physically impossible to gain 60 lbs of muscle in this amount of time, so I'm assuming that it's primarily fat? If so, this would explain the fat under the chin.

Is anyone else in your family predisposed to have this same trait? Because, from my experience, it is genetic to some degree. That is, I have seen men (and women, for that matter) who are quite fit, who still have this problem, if you want to call it that. But since it is impossible to spot reduce, you would just have to just diet and exercise until it came off. It may be the first thing to go. It may be the last. But it will typically come off in the reverse order it came on, if that makes any sense.

Only other alternative is liposuction. There are some non-invasive procedures that claim to tighten the skin and other tissues (Thermage, for instance). But I don't know how effective they are.
