January’s Resolution: Weight Loss!
Every year the number one resolution of Americans is to lose weight. Weight is a major health issue in America. The rate of overweight or obese has been rising for decades topping at 66% of Americans. A recent study, researchers found that the trend may have been short-lived. If nothing changes, they estimate that half of all U.S. teenagers will be overweight or obese by 2030 — as will one-third of kids between 6 and 11 years old.
Overweight and obesity are defined by the World Health Organization as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impair health. The Body Mass Index (BMI) is used to determine if you are categized as overweight or obese. BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. The easiest way to calculate your body mass index is by using an online BMI calculator. Just plug in your weight, height, age, and gender and the calculator does all the work for you. Not only does it tell you your body mass index measurement, the calculator also tells you a healthy BMI range for your age and sex. https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/index.html.

Most people want to lose weight for the purpose of looking good not realizing they are bettering their overall health. It has been recently been discovered that the fat tissues (adipose tissue) creates hormones and inflammatory agents that make you gain weight and make you ache. The adipose tissue creates estrogen that will make men flabby and weak and increase weight in the buttock and thighs for women. The adipose tissue generates inflammatory agents that cause skin conditions, muscle and joint pain and just and overall feeling of not feeling well. The tissues and organs get filled with these toxic agents that need to be flushed by a good cleanse and detox program followed by a wholesome nutritional program.
