“BMI is generally considered the best way to determine if an individual is at a healthy weight.” - Livestrong.com“BMIs are good indicators of healthy or unhealthy weights for adult men and women, regardless of body frame size.” -American Heart Association“For most people, BMI is a reliable indicator of body fatness.” -Center for Disease Control and PreventionHow BMI Calculator can Help YouThousands of studies in psychology conclude that people do better with goals when they have high self-confidence and can shrink the change in their mind from one large project to a series of manageable steps. With diet and exercise, the mind and heart usually agree. The question is usually not a matter of finding the desire to change. Most people want to lead a healthier lifestyle. But just because the mind and heart want a certain outcome does not mean that the path is always an easy one. How many exercise goals are abandoned shortly after they are started? How many diets are quit after only a short time?There is no shortage of exercise routines and diets that a person can try. We all seem to intuitively know that to make a change in health it usually requires some form of eating healthier (or less) and exercising more. So BMI Calculator is not about providing another routine or diet. Those looking for a step-by-step solution in losing weight should look to another source. BMI Calculator is meant to give a simple table to build self-confidence and shrink the change in developing a healthier body.The Body Mass Index was developed to give people a quick measure of how they stack up in the weight department. There is also clear, defined goals built into the system. A BMI of 25 is overweight. A BMI over 30 is obese. Using this simple gut check in conjunction with an exercise and diet plan can help shrink the change from one huge project to manageable steps. Instead of thinking in terms of loosing a total amount of pounds, BMI calculator provides a table you can quickly reference and determine a next small, manageable goal. The chart is set up in 0.5 BMI increments, giving a clear step of what it will take to go from a BMI of, say, 29 to one of 28.5.The body mass index was developed by Doctors to help people understand their level of weight and health. As you use the tool to understand your own relative health I hope that you will also find the tool will continue to motivate you as well as provide a clear next step in a series of manageable goals.

Before she met Il-sun in an orphanage, Gi was a hollow husk of a girl, broken from growing up in one of North Korea's forced-labor camps. A mathematical genius, she has learned to cope with pain by retreating into a realm of numbers and calculations, an escape from both the past and present. Gi becomes enamored of the brash and radiant Il-sun, a friend she describes as "all woman and springtime." But Il-sun's pursuit of a better life imperils both girls when her suitor spirits them across the Demilitarized Zone and sells them as sex workers, first in South Korea and then in the United States. This spellbinding debut, reminiscent of "Memoirs of a Geisha," depicts-with chilling accuracy-life behind North Korea's iron curtain. But for Gi and Il-sun, forced into the underworld of human trafficking, their captivity outside North Korea is far crueler than the tight control of their "Dear Leader." Tenderhearted Gi, just on the verge of womanhood, is consigned to a fate that threatens not only her body but her mind. How she and Il-sun endure, how they find a path to healing, is what drives this absorbing and exquisite novel-from an exciting young Algonquin discovery-to its perfectly imagined conclusion.

" The Keto Cookbook is for those using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. Each of the 96 recipes for breakfast and brunch, appetizers and snacks, lunch, dinner, and sweets and treats, are compliant with the Keto Calculator and therefore ingredient portions are provided in grams. The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fats and low in carbohydrates, was first developed almost 80 years ago. It makes the body burn fat for energy instead of glucose. When carefully monitored by a medical team familiar with its use, the diet helps two out of three children who are tried on it and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. It is a strict diet, and takes a strong commitment from the whole family. The ketogenic diet is not a do-it-yourself diet. It is a serious form of treatment that, like other therapies for epilepsy, has some side effects that have to be watched for. The book includes a 16-page color insert illustrating each recipe. Since many children start the Keto Diet before they speak, the pictures of the meal and snack options allow children to choose what they want, helping overcome food refusal due to lack of variety of foods and/or child's loss of control over food options. This book provides parents and children with options that have been tested and are kid- and Registered Dietitian- approved. Features of The Keto Cookbook include: 96 kid and dietitian tested and approved recipes for the keto diet presented in full color Recipes are coded by symbol to indicate personality type and cooking times Allergy information for the eight most common allergens Practical suggestions to help people ""keto-proof"" their life, from the kitchen, to the car, to the classroom. Four sample shopping lists and vacation guidelines will help families prepare for the unexpected Sample forms for the Transportation Safety Agency, School/Daycare Center, and Emergency Room/Primary Physician "
