At Your Own Risk

The Times' Lose 19 in '19 weight-loss contest has begun. This is unquestionably the biggest danger of being overweight or obese. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, your risk of death increases by 30% for every 33 pounds of excess weight you carry. A severely obese individual (someone with a BMI of 40+) can expect to live 8-10 years less than a person in the 'normal' BMI range.

Another metabolism-boosting tip : Eat every three to four hours, and that should include making time for breakfast. Research shows that people who miss a morning meal experience a surge in a hunger-related hormone later in the day. Regular snacks (which should include fiber-filled complex carbs and protein !) will keep you feeling full and your body burning cals at a steady rate.
