W8MD’s 3 easy steps to losing weight fast in NYC
Weight loss step 1.
The first step for losing weight in New York City is to know whether you are overweight or obese, and calculate how many pounds do you need to lose weight to be in the normal range.
The most effective and practical way to know your weight relative to your height is the age old BMI scale or body mass index scale. Although not perfect, the BMI works for most normal body built people and gives an idea of where you stand.
Weight loss step 2.
Understand that it is not all BMI – it is also the distribution of body weight. For example, two people with the same BMI, one has very good distribution of weight, and the other has a lot of belly fat – the one with excess belly fat is at higher health risk. To know this, a very simple and practical way is to measure waist circumference.
A waist circumference of 40 inches or above for men and 35 inches and above for women is considered to increase the risks associated with belly fat. These numbers are 5 lower for Asians – Asian men have a cut of 35 inches and Asian women have a cut off of 30 inches in terms of the waist circumference.
Another method used is waist to hip ratio – the ideal being below 1 for men and below 0.8 for women.
Weight loss step 3.
Let us say, you know your BMI is a bit high or you do have some belly fat, you may want to consider losing weight.
