i dont think bigger boned is quite the right term

my mom says im big boned because for a girl......i have huge shoulders (bigger than me older brothers)
Well you mentioned that you're a swimmer so there's no way you can be fat.. u're just well toned i guess..male swimmers have huge pecs withouth the need for free weights..female swimmers are nicely toned.. sexay..

It inhibits it - stops it working. ADH is a hormone that - I'll try not to be too technical just in case (don't know what you study!) - opens water channels in your kidney so the water can go back into your blood. When you drink alcohol it stops the ADH from working so you lose all that water in your urine instead of reabsorbing some. This makes you dehydrated, which causes the symptoms of a hangover. Which is why you should always drink lots of water when you've had an alcoholic evening, to try to combat the dehydration!

I was told by a biology professor that drinking water has very little effect in this situation because you will pee it straight back out.

As i said the doctor has asked my friend who is a 16 to lose weight for her health and has given her a diet sheet. Ok my friend is shorter but Michelle is twice the size of her and the doctor said my friend is obese.

I dunno... I mean yeah, straight away you would but the alcohol must wear off... Still I guess a biology professor would know what he was talking about! I always tend to drink water though because I feel so parched, and I've not had a hangover yet. Might be linked, maybe not. But the point about ADH inhibition is true cos we did it in physiology a few weeks ago

If you're a stone and a half over then you're fat..looking at your height and your weight..you're not..

I think she is about 2 stone overweight. I think it also depends on how old you are doctors think you are more likely to have weight fluctuations mid teens than mid twenties. I think her doctor is right to get her to lose the weight she is not happy being the weight that she is and cant lose it by herself.

Yeh I learnt about it, too. A hangover is the worst thing that you can experience.

Fat people float better than thin people and so make great swimmers.
