What is it?
Whether you are trying to lose 5 pounds or more than 50 pounds, losing weight is difficult for both men and women of any age. Our body weight is primarily determined by the amount of energy that we intake as food, and the amount of energy we expend on activities throughout the day. There is not an exact method that every individual needs to follow in order to lose weight, because one person’s lifestyle and genetic make-up is completely different to the next. That is why at AD Precision Health, we custom tailor our weight loss programs to work specifically for you based on your goals and lifestyle.
- It is uncomfortable to exercise
- Loud snoring and constantly wake up groggy
- Tender spots in numerous places
- You’re tired all the time
- Your appetite never goes away (even after a big meal)
- You always have high blood pressure or high cholesterol
- Your waist circumference is greater than 35 inches
- Family history of cancer
- Knee, hip and/or back pain
- You have gained unwanted weight every year
- Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that may impact a person’s overall health by putting you at higher risk for conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis and certain cancers.
- Body mass index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height that is commonly used to classify overweight and obesity in adults based on their height and weight.
- Underweight = Less than 18.5
- Normal Weight = 18.5 – 24.9
- Overweight = 25.29.9
- Obesity = 30 or greater
- BMI is the primary metric most providers go by in order to determine if a person is overweight, however it is not always the most accurate or only way in order to determine ones weight.
- Body fat percentage is the other metric some experts use in order to determine if a person is overweight.
- Essential fat needed for Women is 10%-12% and Men is 2%-4%
- Athletic Women are between 14%-20% and Men are 6%-13%
- Fit Women are between 21%-24% and Men are 14%-17%
- Normal Women are 25%-31% and Men are 18%-25%
- Obese in Women are 32%+ and Men are 26%+
- When evaluating a persons weight it is always good to take into account an individual’s body fat percentage as well as BMI, and not just use one metric. For example an individual who is 6”2’ tall and weighs 220 LB has a BMI of 28.25 which would automatically make them overweight, however if that same individual also has a body fat percentage of 10% as a male would be considered an Athlete who could be perfectly healthy.
