Weight Loss: Age and Gender

Dr. Ricardo Castrellon, Director of South Miami Hospital’s Burn Center, explains as we are aging, the metabolic activity tends to decrease. He says with age, the body starts shutting down the systems that you are not using.

He also points out when you are morbidly obese, the fat is going to go to the central part of your body, and the skin and tissues are going to be damaged.
