National Institutes of Health changed what it means to be overweight, defining it as a BMI (body mass index) of 25 or greater for adults. The cut-off had been 28 for men and 27 for women, so suddenly about 29 million Americans who had been considered normal became overweight even though they hadn’t gained an ounce. what is the real meaning of BMI and to note its potential drawbacks: labelling some healthy people as overweight or obese who are not overly fat, and failing to distinguish between dangerous and innocuous distributions of body fat. Many people with BMI levels at the low end of normal are less healthy than those now considered overweight. And some people who are overly fat according to their BMI are just as healthy as those considered to be of normal weight. Tune in for the real information of BMI.
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON BMI AND CHILDREN ??? I have been procrastinating over the lat two weeks over things to write here in my blog. I actually have quite a few things to write about, but have been remiss in doing so. But this morning while watching the news they talked about schools sending children home with letters about them being over weight or having the tendency to be over weight. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
I watched the news as the government shut down and other catastrophes happened and felt empathetic and shook my head and prayed and sent healing energies plus other things ….. but this morning I felt and still do this strong urge to speak up!!!
It’s one thing to test adults and say things to and about adults, but it’s entirely another thing when you start picking on children! It’s hard enough being a child and being bullied and picked on by other children… and now adults are getting on the band wagon to attack our children … the future generation !!! Come on, don’t you remember when you were a child !?!
I say educate adults about nutrition and exercise, they are the ones responsible for making theses rules and buying the food. Adults control what works and what doesn’t. Adults decide who stays and who leaves…..
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON THIS !!??!!?www.celestial-energies.com
Together we can and will make a global difference !!!

Weight loss is one of the hottest topics ever. Everyone seems to be trying to lose weight nowadays. But what’s the difference between weight loss & fat loss? People seem to use both terms interchangeably. After reading this post you’ll understand the difference between weight loss & fat loss, but also which one you should aim for and how.
Weight Loss vs. Fat Loss. What’s the difference? Let’s start by defining weight loss & fat loss so you know what I mean here. Weight Loss. You want to lower your body-weight, the sum weight of your bones, muscles, organs, body fat, … Fat Loss. You want to lower your body fat, the amount of fat your body carries. Healthy goals are 10% body fat for men and 15% for women. Problems with Weight Loss. If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighing yourself. Unreliable. Your body-weight can fluctuate daily since it’s influenced by your stomach/bowel/bladder content, water loss/retention, muscle loss/gain, fat loss/gain, … You’ll have no idea what’s going on. Irrelevant. 2 people with similar height can weigh the same, but look completely different because one has lower body fat than the the other. Check the picture at the top for an example. The last point shows why the BMI standard is flawed: it doesn’t take your body fat into account. Both guys in the top picture have the same BMI, but one is clearly healthier: his body fat is lower.

When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote “My Beloved” in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to both, that these songs merited a bold decision. From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator, Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend. Their dramatic crescendos, minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand. With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists.
