Lose Weight Now – Ask Me How

Women who carry excess acidic fat around their
waists were at greater risk of dying early from
a cancerous condition or heart dis-ease than were
women with smaller waistlines, even if they were
of normal weight, reported researchers from Harvard
and the National Institutes of Health.

There is increasing evidence that excess abdominal
acidic fat is a risk factor for long-term conditions
like diabetes and heart dis-ease. However, the
relationship between abdominal acidic obesity and
risk of death has not been widely studied. The current
study is one of the largest extended investigations
of abdominal acidic obesity and women’s risk of
premature death.

The researchers discovered that women with greater
waist circumferences were more likely to die
prematurely, particularly from heart dis-ease, when
compared to women with smaller waists. For example,
women with waist size equal to or greater than 35
inches were approximately twice as likely to die
of heart dis-ease as were women with a waist size
less than 28 inches, regardless of their body mass
index. Similarly, women with a waist size equal to
or greater than 35 inches also were twice as likely
to die of a cancerous acidic condition as were women
with a waist size less than 28 inches.

Women who had a greater waist circumference and were
also obese were at the greatest risk of premature
death. Researchers determined if a woman was overweight
by calculating her body mass index (BMI), a measure of
a person’s weight in relation to height. BMI is used
to estimate the proportion of a person’s weight that
derives from body fat. A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9
is considered healthy. A BMI of 30.0 – 39.9 is
regarded as obese.

Greater waist circumference is a sign of collecting
excess acidic fat around one’s midsection, called
abdominal obesity. According to the Clinical Guidelines
on the Identification, Evaluation and Treatment of
Overweight and Obesity in Adults published by NHLBI
in cooperation with NIDDK in 1998, a healthy waist
limit for women is 35 inches and, for men, 40 inches.
Waist circumference is determined by measuring around
the waist at the navel line. The NHLBI lists information
on waist circumference and BMI by going here.

The researchers also studied waist-to-hip ratio — a
measure of the narrowest part of the waist compared
to the circumference at the broadest part of the hip —
as a potential determinant of mortality risk. Waist-to-hip
ratio was found to be as strongly associated with risk
of early death as the measurement of waist size alone.

“Although maintaining a healthy weight should continue
to be a corner stone in the prevention of chronic dis-eases
and premature death, maintaining a healthy waist size
should also be an important goal,” the study authors
wrote.

To calculate your BMI and assess your risk for conditions
related to acidic overweight and obesity, read the
pH Miracle for Weight Loss, by Dr. Robert and Shelley
Young. You will find a BMI chart for assessing your
risk for a cancerous condition or heart dis-ease.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, a research scientist
at the pH Miracle Living Center, states, “overweight and
obesity are not fat problems, they are an over-acidic
problem caused by lifestyle, diet and metabolic acids.
If you need and want to lose acidic weight then you
need to eliminate acidic lifestyle and dietary choices
and begin to alkalize and energize your body with
the pH Miracle Living Lifestyle and Dietary Plan.”
