ABSTRACT
The article offers ways for weight management in spinal-cord-injury (SCI) survivors. It notes that the so-called Ideal Body Weight charts adopted by insurance companies and doctors may not be reliable because of the changes in the metabolism and muscle mass of the person after SCI. It also emphasizes the importance of exercise and a low-fat, low-calorie, low-cholesterol diet in preventing obesity.
