The Basics

    The “ideal” body type that modern American culture has taught you to want has no relationship at all with health. In fact, women who are just 5 pounds under their medically defined “ideal” weight have more health risk than women who are up to 75 pounds OVER that their medically defined “ideal” weight. In effect, that weight is your MINIMUM healthy weight.
    The correct way to measure your HEALTH is with your blood pressure and your resting heart rate (measured in the morning, before you even get out of bed). When you monitor these over time, you can get an accurate sense of the health of your cardiovascular system.
