To get us pumped up Dr. Oz gives us some encouragement on losing BMI percentages and the benefits of doing so:
Lose 5% and you can improve your body's ability to use insulin lowering risk of type 2 diabetes.
Lose 11% and you can lower your blood pressure significantly.
Lose 16% and you can experience a threefold increase in your levels of vitamin D preventing migraines and Parkinson's disease.
Great incentives!!! Calculate your BMI, implement the changes we've been talking about and get that percentage lower. I've got a secret to share with you. I've actually lowered my BMI by 4 points since December. Partly due to being sick but also changing how I think about food and increasing my exercise. I've slowed down recently but plan to just watch my food intake and keep challenging myself to be the best me after these 28 days.
