FYI BITS
~ ~ ~
PCOS Lady:
Thought best to make a place for factual info and info bits here on lifestyle issues… I come across bytes of interest all the time…
~ Research is ongoing, new findings are uncovered, new linkings of drugs, food, etc… to PCOS are added constantly…
~
BMI
~
http://www.wdxcyber.com/dxinf001.htm
~ Women’s Health Resource … Obesity with a body mass index (BMI) of over 27 is often present and it represents a central, android obesity (waist to hip ratio of greater than 0.85) in PCOS women.
~ BMI i feel should be checked by a trained person! Who uses the fat pincher thingy…
~ Case in point: My pinched BMI was 25, by my height & weight online it was 35!
~
BELLY FAT
~
This abdomen fat is called omentum… Omentum is a fold of the tissue lining the abdomen that surrounds the organs. The omentum stores fat extremely easily… That fat feeds your liver with toxins

~ Med Page Today … Food Packaging Tied to Metabolic Trouble in Kids…
~ Greater urinary concentration of BPA in children, commonly found in food and drink packaging, was significantly associated with higher risk of obesity, as well as greater odds of an abnormal waist circumference.
~ Note that another study found that increased concentration of the plasticizer DEHP in the urine of adolescents was associated with an increased risk for insulin resistance.

WAIST MEASUREMENTS
~
Proper way to measure is when you suck your tummy in! Per Dr Oz since we do not want to include your tummy muscles at a relaxed state!
~ Ideal measurement is half your height…
~ Women – under 35″
~ Men – under 40″
* Most places measure incorrectly, especially the military branches!
