Explanation of BMI:
BMI or Body Mass Index is fairly accurate. The only times its not is for competitive athletes who have packed on a lot of muscle, otherwise this is a good indicator of healthy weight.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person’s weight and height. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.
If your body mass index number is over 24.9 you are creeping into the overweight classification. Eat less sugar and processed carbs. If you cut out bread for example, a simple carbohydrate, your system will have less sugar to deal with. Most overweight people can easily lose 10 to 20 lbs by eating more vegetables and protein and less simple carbohydrates.
All processed foods have simple carbohydrates or sugars which turn into fat quickly, it’s an energy storage system you need for survival. But if you don’t burn up enough of those sugars you will gain weight. It’s guaranteed.
