Wednesday Weigh-In 20090121

I gave in to sugar cravings over the weekend, and topped it all off with a huge dinner last night at a Mexican restaurant. Also I haven't been able to get to the gym due to some days working late.

Waist = 38"
Height = 5' 9"

I was watching one of those television shows about extremely obese people...people who weight more than 1000 pounds. This woman's BMI was something like 113!

That's incredible!

I think the medical profession is starting to think of weight control and especially obesity as disease processes. They're looking at new fields of research like Nutrigenomics. We're starting to learn about Functional foods and Nutraceuticals.

Hopefully soon we'll have prescribed diets rather than prescribed drugs. And hopefully soon after, insurance companies will need to provide us with a stipend to buy good foods rather than the cheap, easy-to-manufacture-and-store foods that make us sick.
