Before starting any weight loss program, it’s important that you become familiar with the term Body Mass Index (BMI). Although fairly accurate, this method may overestimate the body fat of muscular athletes and underestimate the body fat of an individual with very little muscle weight.
Waist circumference is considered by many health professionals to be another important factor when evaluating fat distribution. Studies indicate visceral fat found in the abdominal area around the waist measuring greater than 35 inches for women, and 40 inches for men, may also increase the likely hood of heart disease, diabetes and other medical problems even if BMI is within normal range.
If after calculating your BMI you are contemplating the causes of your weight gain, it is important to realize that you are not alone. New Horizons Medical Clinic, Spring, Texas can help you gain control of your health and weight, because it is important to understand that being overweight is often a downward spiral that may result in developing various medical problems.
