[Wow] Doctors Measuring Your Health WRONG?

How do you know if you’re healthy? 

You can go by how you feel… or how far you can run… or how many prescription drugs you’re taking.   

But how do doctors tell if you are healthy? 

There is common measure that doctors have been using for YEARS to make a snap decision on how healthy you are.  

The only problem? We’re starting to learn that this test isn’t all it’s been cracked up to be. 

Let me show you… 

Body mass index (BMI) is a traditional measurement doctors use to divide the healthy from the unhealthy. 

I’ve used it myself for years. 

BMI is a calculation where you divide a person's weight by their height and it gives you a number (there are many online calculators that will give you your BMI if you want to find out your number). 

If you’ve heard the statistic that two-thirds of people in the United States are either overweight or obese, they are using BMI. 

Here is what the numbers look like:

  • Underweight: Your BMI is less than 18.5
  • Healthy weight: Your BMI is 18.5 to 24.9
  • Overweight: Your BMI is 25 to 29.9
  • Obese: Your BMI is 30 or higher

Insurance companies, health organization, doctors…  all use BMI to determine health. 

But should they be using it? Should I or any other doctor be using it?

That’s where things get interesting… 

A recent set of studies has found that the distribution of fat (where you store fat) – rather than the total amount — may give us more clues about the risk of conditions such as insulin resistance, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even some cancers.

Belly fat is particularly harmful, research shows, with some studies showing it can raise the risk of diabetes and heart disease.  

So, it might be time to throw away BMI and focus on belly fat instead. 

What do you do if you have too much belly fat? 

Dr. Scott’s Plan to Destroy Belly Fat: 

  • Blood sugar is one of the biggest factors in belly fat storage. Control your blood sugar by limiting sugars and other carbohydrates. You can also help your body control blood sugar by using the mineral chromium, and the herbs berberine, garcinia, and sphaeranthus.
  • Protein, especially good quality proteins (such as beef, fish, chicken etc.), is great for balancing blood sugar. 
  • Alcohol is another belly-fat promoter. Yes, a beer-belly can be caused by beer.  Reduce or eliminate alcohol from your diet as much as possible. 
  • Exercise is a great way to build muscle and lose belly fat.  It helps to burn calories and balance blood sugar. 

Health and Happiness,
