Can I Have a Normal Body Weight and be Obese?

By Todd Killebrew, ND August 14, 2017

Typically when you or your doctor take your height and weight you end up with a BMI (body mass index) measurement. This is simply a ratio of weight to height and is a somewhat useful tool for determining overweight or obesity when looking at a large population. On an individual level, however, it tends to fall short of revealing the whole story. For example, one can have a very high muscle mass and be labeled as overweight or obese. This is typical of many athletes and bodybuilders, but does not reflect the average person.

Berries Can Help Prevent Heart Disease

By Dr. Jerry Mixon August 15, 2013

Berries help prevent heart disease. A study that looked at 93,000 nurses over 18 years, found that the more deeply pigmented berries they consumed, the lower the risk of heart attacks.

The magic number for blueberries, strawberries and raspberries seems to be about three servings per week. Even those women who were overweight, smoked, or suffered from diabetes had a reduction in their risk of heart attacks, when deeply pigmented berries were a significant part of their diet. But as expected, thin women who exercise regularly did even better than their sedentary and overweight counterparts.

Exercise Bursts Are More Efficient

By Dr. Jerry Mixon July 18, 2013

Over the decades aerobic exercise has developed into a quasi-cult. But the latest science tells us that short intense bursts of exercise are more efficient at shifting our metabolism than long stretches of aerobic activity.

If you change your exercise routine into four or five short intense bursts of exercise that leave you breathless, separated by three or four minutes of gentle exercise that allow you to recover, your body quickly shifts into fat burning mode. Studies show that these bursts of activity separated by gentle rest periods effectively lower your risk of diabetes, increase fat burning and enhance both sexuality and mental acuity.

High Intensity Exercise vs Aerobic Exercise

Over the decades aerobic exercise has developed into a quasi-cult.

The great advantage is that 15 or 20 minutes of exercise in this pattern is

Fat Costs Money

By Longevity February 5, 2013

Transcript:

When your doctor tells you to lose weight, it’s not because they care what you look like in a bathing suit. We used to think that fat was just energy stored against the future, and that someday there will be a famine so the skinny would starve and the chubby would inherit the earth. But that famine never came. We now know that fat produces a variety of hormones, peptides, and enzymes that can have wide-ranging impact on your health. Overweight people have increased risk of diabetes, dementia, cancer, sexual dysfunction, heart disease and strokes. It costs Medicare 50% more every year to treat an obese American compared to one of normal weight. The problem is only 20% of Medicare patients are normal weight. If we Americans lost our
