Then, you need healthy, low-fat, portion-controlled meals composed of complex carbs and lean proteins. Plenty of posts in my HealthTap feed about this, so search away!! ...Read more

Not obese: Hi. Your BMI is 27.3, a little overweight but certainly not obese. Some of the body fat measuring tools can have a lot of error, so take 44% with some skepticism. Obesity is defined by BMI or waist circumference, and not by % body fat. Eat healthily and exercise regularly. ...Read more
