Escape the fast food

Eyeing that hamburger? Look first at the waist. An American study reveals that each time we change the plate for a snack tray, our Body Mass Index goes up by 0.03 points. That is, this is a sum in which you only have to lose.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple way to tell if you are… out of shape. This measure determines whether your fat levels and weight are within the recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO).

According to WHO, a person with a BMI between 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy. From 25 to 29.9, you are already overweight. Above 30, is classified as obese.

Research from the University of California, Davis with global data found that a person eats fast snacks between 27 and 33 times a year. In the same period, the average BMI of the population of 25 countries followed increased from 25.8 to 26.4. Which determines that, yes, we are gaining weight. The study was published in the Bulletin of the World Health Organization.

It just cannot, and should not, exaggerate. To reduce the measures, there is no secret. It requires commitment, focus and is not easy. But it also requires information. And this is where I can help you. And I hope to be doing it here on my website!
