Do not forget to take care of your winter body.
We take care of our summer body every season. However, when it comes to taking care of my winter body, we are a little lazy. Taking care of the body is not about beach trips or pool parties. In fact, it is about having a long and healthy life. Having excessive fat leads to a lot of health issues including diabetes, heart problems, strokes, and cancer.
Approximately, 35% of Americans have Obesity. Obesity is calculated by your BMI (Body Mass Index)
Body Mass Index (BMI) = Weight (KG) ÷ Height (Metres²)
A standard BMI of a healthy person ranges from 19 – 25. Anything ranging from 25-30 is considered overweight. BMI greater than 30 indicated a person is obese. Try calculating your BMI to find out if you are the right weight.
However, If you have already put on weight, here are some great tips to reduce a few pounds in a short time.
