In the last couple of weeks, there has been a lot of press regarding obesity being a disease
Though obesity has been a health issue in the public eye for decades, doctors are not always equipped or prepared to help patients treat and prevent obesity-related illnesses
Why all this fuss about sleep?
First, there is conclusive research that constant, inadequate sleep puts you at risk of obesity and diabetes.
In my profession, it’s not all about exercise and eating right to help my clients achieve their goal. It is all about a whole lifestyle change. Unfortunately one important factor which is often considered the least by most people is sleep. It is a basic human need and is just as important for good health as diet and physical activity.
The primary method used across the world is Body Mass Index (BMI) which is a height to weight comparison. BMI is not a measure of body composition; it will not tell us the percentage of body fat on our body.
You don’t have to go back 5,000 years ago but maybe only 60 years, to know if you were alive in these times you would be lean, strong and fit with a well proportioned body
You would be a very athletic and active version of your current self. And the best part is you wouldn’t have to step foot into a gym and “workout” to get these impressive results.
