My health insurance gives a premium discount to customers who keep healthy. As a result of modern science, they define as healthy individual a total cholesterol level below 200, a limit which I have problems to meet since I started paleo. My... (more)

From what I understand , if you eliminate saturated fat and replace it with PUFA for a few weeks your numbers will look good. You may trigger a lot of inflammation and be far worse off, but you numbers will look good to insurance buffoons.

At this point, a lot of that weight might be water weight. Do you exercise, especially weight lift? Because I would expect you to start gaining weight in muscle if your diet is good (which I can't tell from this post). I wouldn't rely too much on... (more)

Hello, I am the new guy! I started Paleo a week ago (after reading Arthur de Vany's book). I started with a weight of ca. 87 kg (with a body height of 170cm / male / age 34). Every morning I step onto my scale and I alrealy lost about 3 kg. But... (more)

The BF% system on those scales is generally wrong, but they are consistently wrong if you always use them in the same conditions. In the morning just before or after a shower (though after is better as you will be sure to have the same amount of... (more)

Can anyone recommend a product or method they use to measure & track their body fat percentage? I have a body fat caliper but it's pretty hard to try and take the measurements myself. Thanks!

And yes, I know, you shouldn't even bother looking at a scale and just judge by what you see in the mirror. But like everything else, the more you look at something (like on a daily basis), the less change you'll see. My issue is I was just on... (more)

You should look into hydrostatic body fat testing - there may be a place in your area that has it, or a nearby service that makes appointments to stop by local gyms every few months or so. Hydrostatic BF testing is done underwater, which is the... (more)

Obviously, the BMI calculation is far from perfect. Generally though, where would you guys put the ideal BMI of healthy/active men and women? Just wondering if you guys have any thoughts on this.

I think that the ideal BMI for women is 18 to 21 with a dress size of 0 or 2. If a girl doesn’t do weight lifting then her MBI should be below 20. For guys I think the ideal BMI is 24 to 26 and the guy should be lean and muscular with body fat %... (more)

Its probably also good to request them to parse out your LDL into two different profile. If you have a large amount of large puffy LDL it is mostly likely okay.

Paleo lifestyle challenges a lot of CW, especially on diet and fitness regimen. That understood, is BMI still a valid rubric, or are there better ways to understand ratios of bone, muscle, and fat when wanting to improve fitness?

No, sorry... 5'6" 115 lbs was the cutoff. Shorty! Are you for real, if so you're an attention whore, a dumbass, or some bastardized combination of both.
