Yoram Yasur Abt: Megarexia: the eating disorder that is affecting the life of many

Unfortunately, there are various eating disorders that affect a large number of people, mainly women. These sufferings have something in common: those who suffer have a distorted view of their body, they do not perceive it as it really is.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Although anorexia and bulimia are the most known eating disorders, there is another condition called megarexia. The people who suffer from it consider that their weight is adequate and their body looks thin, even if they are obese”.

Those who live with megarexia are convinced that their figure has the ideal weight and proportions and that they have a healthy appearance (even some people with megarexia can confuse overweight with force, believing that it is muscle mass), to the extent that Refuse to exercise and eat a healthy diet. On the contrary, they consume large amounts of food, most of them saturated with fats and calories, because they are sure that it will not make them gain weight, since when they look at themselves in the mirror they see a thin body.

Marina Díaz Marsá, director of the Eating Disorders Unit at Hospital Clínico in Madrid, explained to the media that people suffering from megarexia have a distortion in their body schema, causing them to see themselves as thin and Healthy, without realizing that they are overweight or obese.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “In addition to being overweight or obese, the intake of foods with so-called empty calories, that is, they do not contribute nutrients (such as box bread, fried foods, fast food, soda, etc.), causes other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.”

Because this eating disorder is little known, exact numbers of how many people are not. However, it is estimated that a significant percentage of the world’s 500 million people with obesity may be undiagnosed megarexes.

In the medical literature, it is also possible to find this condition as “fatorexia”. The term “fatorexia” comes from “fat”, which is ‘fat’ in English and ‘orexis’, which means ‘appetite’.

Some of the symptoms of megarexia are:

Avoid looking at full body mirrors

Do not know how much you weigh exactly

Wearing loose-fitting clothing and make sure all the clothes fit well

Ensuring that people exaggerate by telling you that you have a problem with your weight or your diet

Believing that scales are broken down when they mark your actual weigh

The treatment for megarexia or fatorexia consists of a psychological therapy so that the person learns to know his body and accepts it as it is, in addition to a balanced diet that allows him to have an adequate weight and improve his health.

Do you know Tanorexia? Yoram Yasur expert in rare diseases want to tell you….

yoram yasur tanorexia

Yoram Yasur Abt: Tanorexia

Yoram Yasur Abt | Until not long ago, we had to wait for the arrival of summer to boast of tan. However, the irruption in the market of the cabs of UVA rays brought with it out of season of that, so desired, cinnamon color. But the stubbornness of a dark skin has gone so far that for some people it has become an obsession. In fact, it has led to the emergence of a psychological disorder called tanorexia (so-called tan in English).

This term arose in 2005 in the American Academy of Dermatology and refers to a disorder in the perception of one’s own body. If in diseases such as anorexia or bulimia a person believes to have a weight above what they have, when we speak of tanorexia we mean a dysmorphia (excessive worry about some physical defect, either real or imaginary) in which the Person has the perception that their skin is never brown and therefore overexposes to the sun or UVA rays.

“This psychological disorder is more common between the ages of 17 and 35 and affects both men and women. People who feel the need to sunbath or have regular UVA sessions can see their health resentful, as they do not usually take the necessary precautions to protect their skin. There are many myths surrounding the products to get a faster tan, including oils, soft drinks, and moisturizers, but none of them should be used, since they do not contain sunscreen, the only effective shield that can have the skin Exposed to the sun”.

Some studies point out that, in addition, tanning addiction tanning addiction is since when taking sun release endorphins and opioids, in an effect like that of people addicted to drugs, and in many cases even leads them to suffer Withdrawal syndrome if they cannot tan their skin as much as they want. This problem not only involves psychological disorders (anxiety, dissatisfaction, competitiveness …), also sometimes loss of appetite and, worse, inevitably increases the chances of suffering from skin cancer due to overexposure to ultraviolet rays.

Yoram Yasur Abt:

“The profile of the person suffering from tanorexia is that of a woman between 17 and 35 years old who, despite having a brownish skin color, will always look paler than it is. For this reason, it exposes itself to the sun in an insistent way, touching unsightly limits and can be dangerous to health”.

When it comes to recognizing whether a person has tanorexia, it is sufficient to observe their physical appearance and behavior. Among the most common symptoms of tanorexia are:

  • Tanned skin in excess.
  • This results in a premature aging of the skin. Its appearance is rough, it is dehydrated, the lines of expression are very marked, it is rough and even thicker.
  • These patients present a high degree of anxiety about the possibility of losing the acquired tan.
  • The most common is that they come very often to tanning centers.
  • It is also common for them to compete with those around them to see who is the darkest.
  • They always state that their skin is pale or that they are not as dark as they would like.

To treat tanorexia

This obsession with finding the perfect skin color, as with other dysmorphias. Best to use a doctor who specializes in this type of behavior. Usually a psychologist. The first thing that must be given is an intention. On the part of the affected to change the situation of dependence. In which it is, as it happens in other cases of addictions. Once this will exist, some guidelines of therapy should be followed to deal with the problem.

In many occasions, this type of obsession is derived from other problems like anxiety or depression. So if the professional detects some of the symptoms. Of these disorders will establish a treatment for them as well, since the problem must be addressed from the root. The self-esteem of the affected is key in the recovery. Something that will improve with the therapies and will get to end the distortion is its own image.

In addition to such treatments

And depending on the damage done to the skin. It may be necessary to regenerate it through specialized cosmetic. Products that help it recover some of its hydration and elasticity.

Although it should not be forgotten that the harmful effects of. The sun on the skin may appear years later. Psychological treatments are the ones that need. The most time so it is very important to have patience and to be making progresses little. By little that motivate to continue with the process of change.

On the other hand, we must not forget that we must expose ourselves to the sun. In a healthy way. Not doing it during the central hours of the day, protecting us. With the photoprotector suitable for each situation and type of skin. And considering that the tan Be progressive. Especially during the first few days to prevent redness and burns.

This feeling of restlessness does not disappear once you leave work, continue in an iron way without being able to disconnect from the pending tasks and the anguish of those that are yet to come.

One of the data that we must keep in mind always is that work stress affects all levels: physical, emotional, and cognitive. This does not mean that the person suffering from stress is aware of what is happening to him or can quickly link the cause to the consequences, or vice versa. This will make it difficult for you to find the help you need to deal with that emotional state.

Workplace stress emotional symptoms:

Emotions can sometimes be complex and difficult to translate, even one may not be aware that he is especially irascible, but that does not mean that people around him do not easily perceive it.

“Emotional instability is going to be one of the clues to investigate”. That state in which one does not know how to find or change emotion quickly, is an indication that something is happening.

“My back hurts” will appear”.

If we submit to the body at constant tension, regardless of whether one is aware that. He is in constant hypervigilance or with the body unable to relax him. The whole body will suffer. It may begin with a contracture, by feeling the rigid body or being self-conscious that it cannot be undone.

yoram yasur male-infertility

Yoram Yasur Abt: All about male infertility

Yoram Yasur Abt | Male infertility is defined as the inability of a man to impregnate a fertile woman. After trying for a long time and without any method of contraception.

In people under 30, between 20 and 37% achieve pregnancy in approximately 3 months.

But when there are medical conditions that interfere with the ability to conceive.

When we start talking about infertility. According to several studies, 15% of couples trying to conceive.

For a year without success are infertile.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “As the biological process of reproduction is more focused on the woman, who hosts the future baby inside her body, we tend to believe that when a couple is unable to conceive infertility is in the woman. However, 7% of all men are infertile and among infertile people, between 40 and 50% are men”.

The importance of semen and spermatozoa:

Fertility in men depends on the quality of the semen, the organic fluid through which sperm move, which are the haploid cells (male gamete) that fuse their nucleus with an ovum of a female (gamete), which later will lead to the formation of an embryo and fetus.

For this reason, semen is very important in sexual reproduction. The quality of the semen is measured by the ability to achieve fertilization, that is, what define the semen quality are the spermatozoa, both in quantity and in their functional capacity. A “good quality” sperm is one that can travel to the position of the eggs to fuse their nucleus.

The road to fertilization:

In order for men to be clinically capable of conceiving, several things must happen. On one hand, man must produce healthy spermatozoa.


They have an adequate quantity and quality. As sperm are produced in the testicles. This requires the proper functioning of the male reproductive organs.

Which depend mainly on proper formation and growth during puberty. In turn, the body of man must produce the necessary amount of testosterone. And other hormones that are involved in the production of sperm.

Once formed, the spermatozoa must be transported to the semen. This is done through specific tubes that lead to the sperm.

In the semen and then be ejaculated by the penis.

In this case, a correct amount of spermatozoa is necessary in the semen.

Since the smaller the amount, the less chance a sperm can fertilize an egg.

A low concentration of spermatozoa is about 15 million sperm per milliliter of semen or less than 39 million per ejaculate.

“In addition, spermatozoa have to be able to be functional and able to move. In case the movement or functionality is not appropriate. Then it is likely that they will not find the egg or not penetrate it.”

yoram yasur goodbye-means-maturity

Yoram Yasur Abt: Saying goodbye means maturity

Yoram Yasur Abt | Life is like a train. We shared the wagon with many people, but we did not get to befriend all of them and some of them did not even get to know us.

There are those who annoy us or are unfriendly and others arouse great sympathy. There will be those who accompany us until the end of the tour.

And others will be coming down very soon. Life, like that train, is a constant change, so holding on to the immutable implies, in a way, denying reality.

Over the years, you will have to say goodbye several times. Sometimes that farewell will be very painful.

But breaking that bond is imperative to continue forward. Every time you say goodbye to someone. In a certain way, you reconnect with yourself because you need to find a new balance. That is not always bad, the really bad thing is to remain attached to people who cause us harm, limit us, and prevent us from growing.

Dare to break the bond:

“Saying goodbye does not always mean to stop seeing a person or to forget about it, it simply means to break the current bond that we have established because it is the relationship that you have created the cause of the malaise”. When a person does not need you, when you are not as important as he / she is to you, you will gradually fill you with gaps and gaps. When you give too much without receiving virtually nothing in return, you will end up empty, tired, and disappointed.

Of course, daring to break that bond is not easy. There are likely to be many feelings in between, a story built on two and perhaps even hopes for the future. However, the rule is very simple: when the presence of a person causes more harm than good, when neither of them enjoys company and the relationship reports more suffering than happiness, it is time to revalue that relationship and dare to say goodbye.

Saying goodbye involves living a grieving process:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “To say goodbye implies to live a process of mourning, which is not always easy because it carries very intense emotions”. The first step is to accept that we are no longer well-loved or have ceased to be important and occupy a significant place in that person’s life.

The second step is to make the decision to say goodbye, being aware that it is the best solution. This phase is very important because it will prevent future regrets, you must take that step knowing that you are breaking a toxic link, being fully aware that it is a relationship that has no future. The decision should not be the result of an emotional start, but should be considered and weighed.

The third step is to learn how to channel the emotions that are likely to flood you, such as loss of feeling, anger, sadness and / or nostalgia. The wounds of the soul take time to heal, but it is important that you do not stay with those emotions inside because they end up cramping.


In fact, anger, hatred, or rancor are emotions that only hurt those who feel them. Therefore, while it is normal to experience during the first stages, it is also essential that you get rid of them throughout the process. If you continue to feed those emotions, it will mean that you are still somehow tied to that person, so you will not be able to close that chapter of your life. When you get rid of those negative emotions you will realize that you can carry on lighter luggage.

Look inside you and grow

Often, when we are immersed in relationships that cause suffering, we disconnect from our desires, needs and illusions. It is a mechanism of disconnection that we unconsciously put into action to protect ourselves. That is why saying goodbye to this toxic relationship opens a new path for you, new opportunities, and the possibility of learning from mistakes.

When you are about to close a chapter of your life. Move the focus of your attention inward, think of yourself. Clarify what you want and make new plans. It is not about filling the void that has left that person with someone else. Because it is likely that within a certain time you find yourself in the same situation again. About finding new reasons to live, new passions and new ways of understanding and living in the world.

yoram yasur glycerol

Yoram Yasur Abt: Glycerol

Yoram Yasur Abt | Glycerol is a liquid found in all types of oils. As well as animal or vegetable fats. If they are associated with other fatty acids. Such as oleic or stearic. It is untouched to the touch, colorless. In addition, a very hygroscopic lipid, that has the capacity to absorb the humidity. Present in the environment that surrounds it.

Properties and uses:

Glycerin is an osmotic dehydrating agent which, as we have said, contains hygroscopic and lubricating properties. On the other hand, it has a local and topical anti-inflammatory action. In addition, it is a good solvent for organic and mineral substances.

Glycerol can be used in various food products for different purposes. It is a precursor for the synthesis of triglycerides and phospholipids in liver and adipose tissue. When the body uses stored fat for energy, glycerol and fatty acids are released into the bloodstream. In addition, glycerol can be converted to glucose in the liver, providing energy for cellular metabolism.

The application of glycerol is very varied and contains other uses such as:

  • The manufacture of cosmetic products, especially in the soap-making industry.
  • Within the medical area, it is used in the compositions of medicines, as syrups, creams, etc.
  • Can be used as lubricant and antifreeze.
  • In the manufacture of different products especially in the preparation of teas, coffees, and other vegetable extracts, as well as the production of refreshing drinks, where it is added as an additive to increase the quality.
  • They are used in the manufacture of resins used as insulators.
  • It is a component used in varnishes and in the paint industry.


Yoram Yasur Abt: “Glycerin if administered topically should be used dissolved in water because it is irritant concentrate. It should be used with caution in patients with hypervolemia, cardiac or hepatic failure and renal disease, as well as in dehydrated and diabetic patients”.

It is advisable to know that intravenous can cause hemolysis, hemoglobinuria, and acute renal failure. Topically or rectally it can cause pruritus and irritation.

Regarding oral use can be harmful in high doses and cause headache, stomach discomfort and diarrhea.

In addition, we must consider other precautions that include:

– Glycerin should be diluted in water before applying directly to the face.
– We should not apply too much or leave it for very long periods, as it could over moisturize the skin.


– Glycerin is viscous by nature, so it is advisable to wash away any excess glycerin before leaving home as otherwise viscosity will facilitate dust accumulation and contamination on the skin. In addition, it is not advisable to use glycerin with viscous lotions.

Side effects and incompatibilities:

“Glycerin may be incompatible with strong oxidizing agents such as chromium trioxide, chlorate, and potassium permanganate, also with nitric acid”.

It may also present adverse reactions due to its dehydrating action. It should be remembered that oral glycerin can cause headache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, and dizziness and mental confusion. Some cases of cardiac arrhythmias have been observed.

yoram yasur soybean

Yoram Yasur Abt: Let´s talk about Soybean

Yoram Yasur Abt | Soybean is a legume from tropical and subtropical. Areas that is grown predominantly in the United States and China. They use both their seeds and their shoots for various forms of food. Such as soybean oil, sauces, or dressings for different foods. It is a source of proteins, fats. And vitamins with a lot of nutritional power. This high protein content also makes it a meat substitute for those. Who opt for the vegan diet: it is the main ingredient of DVT. Or texturized vegetable protein, food with a meaty appearance and flavor.


Soybeans contain 20 percent oil, 40 percent protein, and 25 percent carbohydrates. Its protein content is very high, as it contains more protein than other legumes and even other foods of animal origin, as well as high levels of calcium and fiber. It is also rich in minerals such as iron, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and manganese; And rich in Phyto sterols and isoflavones, which have positive effects on bone metabolism.

Soy products:

Yoram Yasur Abt: “Soybean oil is the most produced in the world. It is a practically colorless and tasteless oil, and its use is predominantly food, although it can also be found in medicinal or cosmetic remedies. As for its food uses, it is found as frying oil, but also for the manufacture of margarine. Some of its medicinal or cosmetic uses can be as a facial or body moisturizer, as a make-up remover or as a laxative”.

Soybean meal is another of the soybean derivatives, and is obtained from the ground soybean meal. It is often used in the preparation of animal feed, as it provides a high protein content, but also for different sauces, breakfast products and pre-cooked foods. Japanese sweets are usually composed of this type of flour.

This milled grain also obtains the soy milk, which once treated with heat is available for sale, otherwise it would have a very strong taste for Western consumers. In its coagulated form is what we know as tofu.

Fermenting the soybean seed can be obtained soy sauce, a very popular product especially in Asian countries, where it is used as a flavoring. It is brown in color and has large amounts of amino acids. With the fermentation of the soy also obtains other foods like the miso, the matte, and the tempeh.

Effects on health:

“Different studies have shown that soy consumption has positive health effects and can help prevent some diseases”.


One of them is to reduce cardiovascular risks: this is because the components of soy influence in different ways in the cardiovascular system. Among its improvements, we find an improvement in blood fat levels, better blood vessel status, a reduction in blood pressure, an improvement in kidney function and appears to reduce the predisposition to diabetes.

Soy may also help reduce some of the effects of menopause. Since it contains isoflavones, which can lead to a reduction in hot flashes.

Or a reduction in the risk of bone fractures.

In the case of overweight or obesity, those who follow a hypocaloric diet that includes soy as a protein source help to reduce weight in the same way as a regular hypocaloric diet, but also brings other benefits such as improved kidney function, Reduction of body fat mass and abdominal obesity, improve glucose metabolism and improve the composition of fat tissue.

However, excessive consumption of this product could have detrimental consequences. Several studies relate oxalate, one of its components with the propensity to suffer renal lithiasis (stones or kidney stones). It could also be related to the onset of episodes of asthma and other respiratory problems.

yoram yasur happier-couples-gain-weight

Yoram Yasur Abt: Happier couples tend to gain weight

Yoram Yasur Abt | No, it’s not a crazy idea. If you’ve ever thought that marriage gets fat, you’re right. Different studies have concluded that when we maintain a stable and happy relationship we expose ourselves to a greater risk of gaining weight.

Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia followed 6458 women for 10 years. They found that women between 20 and 30 years of age, without children, who were married or lived in a stable way with their partner, had gained more weight than single women. It seems that stable and happy relationships made them gain an average of 7 kilos, 30% more compared to single women. Some even earned an average of 1.8 kilos more per year.

However, women are not the only ones who gain weight in stable relationships. Another study at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas followed 169 married couples over a four-year period and came to the same conclusions: both women and men gained weight. Another research conducted at the University of New York also found no significant differences between men and women regarding weight gain when they maintained a relationship.

In fact, these researchers agree that it is precisely the most satisfying and happy relationships that promote greater weight gain. because problems in the couple and the closeness of a divorce on the horizon often lead to weight loss.




Why does love make you fat?

“The reasons behind this weight gain are several. Researchers point out that in many cases it is because people adapt to the habits of the other, which are not always healthier”.

In the case of women, it has been noted that they tend to eat more foods rich in fat and sugars. Developing a distortion of the portion size that leads them to eat the same as their partners. Without realizing that the caloric needs of Men are different from yours. In fact, some of the women surveyed acknowledged that they ate the same amount as their partners or even more.

It was also noted that couples usually devote more time and effort to the preparation of meals. If we live alone it is more likely that we skip some food or peck something fast but while living as a couple we prepare more copious meals, including dessert and alcohol. In life as a couple, food begins to play a more important role as it is also the time to be in company.

Yoram Yasur Abt: “On the other hand, it is normal for one relationship to spend more time with the other. Which may cause some people to abandon or neglect physical exercise and embrace a less active lifestyle. When priorities change, less time is spent on personal care”.

In fact, the researchers found that fattening couples tend to follow a pattern:

after the dating period, where both frequent bars and restaurants. When the relationship is strengthened and are going to live together. They often organize large dinners and spend more Weekends at home, watching movies. And eating popcorn or ice cream on the couch. Obviously, this passive pattern is key to weight gain.

However, weight gain is not only due to changes in lifestyle and eating habits, but also a sense of relaxation. After courtship, when we have a solid relationship. We feel more supported, confident, confident, and relaxed. So that by decreasing stress and tension, our appetite may increase.

As a conclusion, it should be clarified that these results only reflect a general trend. Many people continue to take care of their lifestyle even if they engage in a relationship. In fact, for some it can be very positive. Since the influence of the other can encourage you to practice more physical activity and eat healthier.
