With the upcoming months, a world of dishes and tasty treats awaits us. And it’s not only Thanksgiving… Veteran’s Day, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and even New Year’s Eve. Whether you celebrate it all or not, at least one big dinner is coming your way.
Of course, as much as we would all love for the extra weight to go towards our muscle mass, it is unlikely. Actually, most of the Winter Season has a body fat gain follow-up.
BMI tables are here to help you out with just that. But, they are missing the simplicity and personalization that The Sosa Clinic provides.
Because of this, we have our virtual body mass index (BMI) calculator. It’s a simple tool where you can put in your Height and Weight to get results in seconds.
Find your BMI today to prepare for the upcoming months, this way you’ll know exactly what you can and can’t eat… AND if you’ll need to do some extra walking.
Always remember, we’re here to keep you updated with the best information for your health! So keep on reading to find out how this tool can help you throughout the holiday season.
What is a BMI Percentile Calculator? Why Do We Use It?
To start off, let’s talk about what knowing your BMI actually means. Body Mass Index is the measurement of body fat based on your height and weight. This is a better way to keep track of your weight loss, as it separates the healthy weight you may gain (muscle mass).
It also turns out that the “ideal weight” is not only dependent on your height, but on your gender as well. Adult men and women have variating standards for a healthy BMI.
The calculator itself will ask you information like your exact Height and Weight. This will result in an immediate calculation of your Body Mass Index. Knowing if you are too thin, if you are average, or if you are obese can help with planning caloric intake.
- If you have severe thinness, you can take advantage of the holidays and stock up on carbs and sugars.
- Having an average BMI means your eating/activity routine is healthy for your body type. So keep going as you are.
- If you have obesity, you can take advantage of new plates with high protein, fats, and salads. But, it is important to restrain from carbs and sugars.
Build a Walking Plan According to BMI Calculator Results
Having a workout plan can be difficult for everyone, no matter the BMI. But, controlling frequent weight gain for disease control and prevention is important too!
Even the World Health Organization has been currently publishing about public walking spaces. These allow for cycling as well and help lower other health complications like:
- High Blood Pressure
- Coronary Heart Disease
- High LDL Cholesterol
All these diseases can be linked to obesity. This is why different centers for disease control suggest the most accessible form of exercise… walking.
To truly reach a healthier goal, you will have to commit, but this can be done with headphones and a stroll outside. Committing to daily walks can help save a person’s life even if it’s a simple 30 minutes.
But if you are looking to lower your BMI, start by walking one mile a day… listen to your body, and slowly increment by one mile more. Your goal is to reach 5 miles a day, without running and without stressing out.
Use a BMI Calculator for Gastric Sleeve Candidacy
Are you looking to lose weight and keep it off? Stay away from heart disease and other complications that haunt people who are overweight or obese.
Our medical advice is to look into your BMI. Use The Sosa Clinic’s virtual calculator to find your results. A BMI for adults who need surgical help can start off at 35.
And although it is mostly common to turn for surgical help at a BMI of 40 +. If you have health complications and would like to take proactive care, make a medical appointment if your BMI is 35 or above.
Now go find out about your health, and remember… Choose what you’re eating this holiday season wisely.
