  • Interesting facts about weight management

    Is the BMI accurate?- The body mass index or BMI is a simple calculation used to categorise people into underweight healthy weight, overweight or obese ranges. However, it is flawed in that it doesn’t take into consideration someone's body composition (such as muscle mass or bone structure) and therefore is more of a guide. What we do know is that it is a measure of relative risk towards having a chronic illness because of weight. If a BMI is under 18.5 then a person has higher relative risk of malnourishment. If their BMI is greater than 30, they have greater relative risk of illnesses such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes. Is a low carb diet bad for me for weight loss?- ....

  • 7 Metabolism Boosters

    Deep inside every person, there is a desire to be fitter, healthier, and leaner. Thankfully, buried not quite as deep inside is the perfect mechanism to make it possible: your metabolism. Depending on an intricate system of enzymes and hormones, your metabolism is what determines how efficiently your body burns off the food you consume. Though some of your ability to obtain and maintain a high metabolism is genetic, low-metabolism genes are no reason to throw in the towel. If you’re willing to take the necessary steps, you can increase your metabolism to ensure your body is hard at work, burning unwanted calories, no matter what your genes look like or what you happen to be doing. ....
