    Are you healthy or just not sick?

    January 10, 2016 - Uncategorized - 1 Comments

    A sedentary lifestyle combined with poor food choices has increased the rate of obesity as well as diabetes to epidemic numbers. The NCHS reports that in 2005-2006, more than 72 million Americans were classified as obese. To classify as obese, a Body Mass Index or BMI of 30 is reached. Calculating your BMI is easy with this simple formula: weight in pounds x 703/height in inches2.

    Here is an example of a male:

    190lbsx703= 133,570
    71 inchesx71 inches= 5,041
    133,570/5,041= 26.5 BMI

    In the following example, this male is considered overweight. To reach a healthy weight he would have to lose 15 pounds to get below a BMI of 25.

    There are other factors besides BMI that determine whether an individual is healthy such as fat to muscle ratio. The BMI formula is a good screen as to where an individual is in regards to there weight and risk for disease.
    We will be sharing tips in the coming weeks on what you can do to be healthy.

    Keeping Healthy and Fit,
