Obesity - Overweight - Defined
Obese or overweight...you may be wondering...what exactly does that mean?
Being obese or overweight is determined by your body weight relative to your height.
One of the best measurements or indicators is called BMI. BMI stands for Body Mass Index. An easy way to help you to relate to your BMI is to consider BMI as to think of it as your thinness or thickness. A low BMI means that you are thin, a high BMI means that your body is thick.
If your BMI exceeds 25, you are considered obese. Even a few pounds over your ideal weight can be surprisingly harmful. I invite you to watch: Why even slightly overweight is dangers, a video by Markus Rothkranz in The Horrors of Being Over Weight section of our forum.
Most experts seem to feel that once your BMI exceeds 25 or if your body weight exceeds your normal weight by 20%, you are at serious risk for health problems and early death.
Some of your risks are:
High Blood Pressure
Type 2 Diabetes
Gall Bladder Disease
Shortness of Breath
Compromised Life Style
Reduced Life Span
Many of us may think that gaining weight is 'normal'. You may feel that once you have children or once you reach a certain age, you gain weight. Worst of all, you may feel deep down that weight gain is beyond your control, so any efforts that you make to lose weight are only temporary.
I am happy to inform you that you are WRONG!
The fact is that a 'healthy lifestyle' means a healthy weight.
The fact is that you do have control over your 'lifestyle' and your weight.
The fact is that you are NOT doomed to fail at weight loss!
