  • They have higher body mass indexes (BMIs -- or measures of body fat based on height and weight). (cafemom.com)
  • BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. (eurekalert.org)
  • But it may offer some benefits over a nonvegetarian diet - such as helping to better control your weight, reducing your risk of some diabetes-associated complications and possibly even making your body more responsive to insulin. (mayoclinic.org)
  • A healthy body weight can improve blood sugar control and reduce your risk of diabetes complications. (mayoclinic.org)
  • In a stage doctors call "pre-diabetes," when blood tests show the body starting to become resistant to insulin, an 8- to 10-percent reduction in weight plus a regimen of moderate daily exercise in the majority of cases can permenently fend it off. (independent.com)
  • Recently, a team of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators even revealed a potential reason why artificial sweeteners like aspartame prevent, rather than promote, weight loss. (mercola.com)
  • Although commenting "I'm gonna win this", and losing 66.2 kg (37% of his body weight since his first weight-in), Harry lost out to Adro's marginally better 37.58%, who in total lost 51.3 kg. (wikipedia.org)
  • The body mass index (BMI) or Quetelet index is a value derived from the mass (weight) and height of an individual. (wikipedia.org)
  • The BMI is an attempt to quantify the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in an individual, and then categorize that person as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on that value. (wikipedia.org)
  • The modern term "body mass index" (BMI) for the ratio of human body weight to squared height was coined in a paper published in the July 1972 edition of the Journal of Chronic Diseases by Ancel Keys and others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Children who grow accustomed to relying on external hunger cues and thus eating more than their bodies need because are more likely to gain excess weight. (wikipedia.org)
  • With a well engineered weighing system, body density can be determined with great accuracy by completely submerging a person in water and calculating the volume of the displaced water from the weight of the displaced water. (wikipedia.org)
  • If there were no errors whatsoever in measuring body density, the uncertainty in fat estimation would be about ± 3.8% of the body weight, primarily because of normal variability in body constituents. (wikipedia.org)
  • The BMI is defined as the body weight (in kilograms), divided by the square of the height (in meters). (wikipedia.org)
  • For both measurements, the individual should stand with feet close together, arms at the side and body weight evenly distributed, and should wear little clothing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Research shows that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies who carry more weight around the hips. (wikipedia.org)
  • The body fat percentage is considered to be an even more accurate measure of relative weight. (wikipedia.org)
  • Findings of these studies range from increase in body weight to a small decrease among women who begin consuming alcohol. (wikipedia.org)
  • The relationship between patterns of alcohol consumption and body weight. (wikipedia.org)
  • visceral fat
  • Several studies have shown that Africans and peoples of African descent have less visceral fat than whites, regardless of gender, age, total body fat, and BMI [ 9 - 12 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • insulin
  • Eating vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and nuts - features of a vegetarian diet - can improve blood sugar control and make your body more responsive to insulin. (mayoclinic.org)
  • If the body does not release more insulin to compensate, the blood-glucose levels will increase. (wikipedia.org)
  • calories
  • Whether fresh or frozen, indulging on shrimp can keep the body full without packing on calories. (bistromd.com)
  • Alcohol also appears to increase metabolic rate significantly, thus causing more calories to be burned rather than stored in the body as fat (Klesges et al. (wikipedia.org)
  • highest
  • When measured at age 13, 15 and 17, the sons of the men in the latter category had the highest BMIs at each time point compared with the sons of men who had started smoking later or who had never smoked. (eurekalert.org)
  • alcohol
  • Temporary spells of OSA syndrome may also occur in individuals who are under the influence of a drug (such as alcohol) that may relax their body tone excessively and interfere with normal arousal from sleep mechanisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • people
  • This results in taller people having a reported BMI that is uncharacteristically high, compared to their actual body fat levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • normal people, who don't have so great a muscular mass, should stay into the fitness range in the table to be healthier. (wikipedia.org)
  • least
  • There is evidence that nonstandard maternal work schedules, meaning those that fall at least partially outside the "traditional" range of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm on Monday through Friday, are correlated with higher child BMIs. (wikipedia.org)
  • kilograms
  • The BMI is defined as the body mass divided by the square of the body height, and is universally expressed in units of kg/m2, resulting from mass in kilograms and height in metres. (wikipedia.org)
  • Current
  • In 1991, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) sponsored a consensus panel whose recommendations have set the current[update] standard for consideration of surgical treatment, the body mass index (BMI). (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • Appendicular skeletal muscle mass: effects of age, gender, and ethnicity. (semanticscholar.org)
  • As the muscle tone of the body ordinarily relaxes during sleep, and the airway at the throat is composed of walls of soft tissue, which can collapse, it is not surprising that breathing can be obstructed during sleep. (wikipedia.org)
  • height
  • The BMI may also be determined using a table or chart which displays BMI as a function of mass and height using contour lines or colours for different BMI categories, and which may use other units of measurement (converted to metric units for the calculation). (wikipedia.org)
  • So, if all body dimensions double, and mass scales naturally with the cube of the height, then BMI doubles instead of remaining the same. (wikipedia.org)
  • In comparison, the Ponderal index is based on the natural scaling of mass with the third power of the height. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • Clinical Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, Mental Health & the mind/body connection. (scoop.it)
  • early
  • A person with diabulimia, especially if not treated early, can suffer negative effects on the body earlier than one who is managing properly. (wikipedia.org)
