Molson Muscle Alert

The “Beer Belly” carried by some normal weight people defined as extra fat around the midsection are more likely to die during the next ten years than those who are overweight or obese but have normal fat distribution, based on waist-to-hip ratio reported the February 2016 Berkeley Wellness Letter.    The recent study in the Anals of Internal Medicine looked at 15,00 people ages 18-90 and found the increased risk in men, three times more likely than women of normal weight but “abdominally obese”.

What is Abdominal Obesity?                                                                      

Abdominal obesity was defined as a waist-to-hip ration of greater that 1.0 meaning that the waist measure is as big as or bigger than hip circumference (a body shape of an apple).

What to Do?

Reduce your caloric intake not just beer and start burning that extra fat around the middle.  Try walking especially if you have a sedentary job or lifestyle.  It’s simple because you need not equipment or special clothing and you can do it just about anytime alone or with friends.

See my blog on walking for more information.

    We are both very satisfied with the excellent chiropractic care we have had over these past months. We had gone to other chiropractors in the area, but Dr. Martin has greatly improved our health conditions.
