Believe it or not, about 40% of American adults are obese. What's the definition of obesity? A body mass index of 25.0 is considered overweight and 30.0 or higher is obese. How do you figure BMI? It's a simple equation:
BMI = (weight (lb) ÷ height2 (in)) * 703.
Worldwide scientists and physicians are pursuing solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic. One major finding is that obesity is a serious factor and may triple the risk of hospitalization for patients with COVID-19. Approximately 78% of people hospitalized with COVID-19 who needed a ventilator or died from the disease were overweight or obese.
And so the saying goes, "We are what we eat." While still working from home we could use commuting time to make healthy meals. Try new recipes. Shop for healthy foods. Know what ingredients go into each dish. Lose a few pounds and enjoy better health.
