Weight loss is such a huge topic! Sorry for the bad pun. But how the heck can we even imagine that we are a healthy population when about 70% of us are overweight? Included in that statistic are 35% of the population who are obese.
The definition of overweight and obese is not measured in pounds, but in the Body Mass Index (BMI). It’s your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in meters. But don’t be concerned about squaring your meters or dividing anything, just click the handy BMI Calculator and enter your height and weight in good old feet and pounds and you have your BMI. Then you can find yourself on the BMI Index Chart in one of the following categories:
Underweight: If your BMI is less than 18.5.
Normal weight: If your BMI is 18.5 to 24.9.
Overweight: If your BMI is 25.0 to 29.9.
Obese: If your BMI is 30.0 or higher.
There are many reasons for being overweight. The ones I’ll be covering with Jennifer Kennedy in her Summit, the Ultimate Waistline Makeover on Dec 10, 2015, include mineral deficiency. In The Magnesium Miracle, I included a statement that was read into the record of the 74th Congress, 2nd session, (Senate document no. 264), 1936. That’s about 80 years. We knew then about mineral depletion of our agricultural soil and since then it’s only gotten worse.
“Do you know that most of us today are suffering from certain dangerous diet deficiencies which cannot be remedied until depleted soils from which our food comes are brought into proper mineral balance? The alarming fact is that foods (fruits, vegetables, and grains) now being raised on millions of acres of land that no longer contain enough of certain minerals are starving us—no matter how much of them we eat. The truth is that our foods vary enormously in value, and some of them aren’t worth eating as food. Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon calories or vitamins or upon the precise proportions of starch, protein, or carbohydrates we consume. Laboratory tests prove that the fruits, the vegetables, the grains, the eggs, and even the milk and the meats of today are not what they were a few generations ago. No man today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his stomach with the mineral salts he requires for perfect health, because his stomach isn’t big enough to hold them! And we are turning into a nation of big stomachs.”
I’ve spent the last 15 years studying minerals and I’ve come to the same obvious conclusion as this Senate report. And I’ve done something about it. I write and speak constantly about mineral deficiency. But that’s not all. I’ve created the mostly highly absorbable minerals you can find so that the solution to mineral deficiency is in your hands.
Sign up for the Ultimate Waistline Makeover to get more facts and enjoy the solution as you increase your water intake and put sea salt ReMag and ReMyte in your drinking water.
Water Intake: Drink ½ your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of
water. If you weigh 150 lbs, you will drink 75 ounces.
Sea salt or Himalayan salt: Add ¼ – ½ tsp to every quart of drinking water – to
one of those bottles add ReMag and ReMyte.
ReMag: Start with ¼ tsp per day in a quart of water and sip through the day. Every 2 days add another ¼ tsp. Work up to a therapeutic dose of 2-3 tsp a day if you are trying to overcome a health condition, if you are on medications or otherwise have magnesium deficiency symptoms.
ReMyte: After a week of slowly building up ReMag, slowly add ReMyte into the same quart of water and sip through the day. Every 2 days add another ¼ tsp. Work up to 1 ½ -2 tsp.
