  • 4. What is BMI
    • BMI stands for B ody M ass I ndex
    • The BMI is a statistical measurement derived from your height and weight
    • Drawback: It does not measure the percentage of body fat.
    • A muscleman may have a high BMI but have much less fat than an unfit person whose BMI is lower.
    • However, the BMI measurement can be a useful indicator for the 'average person'.
  • 5. Calculation of Your BMI
    • BMI (kg/m²) = Weight in kg/ (Height in meters) ²
    • BMI (lb/inch²) = Weight in lb *703 / (Height in inches) ²

    • Not sleeping enough
    • Endocrine disruptors, such as some foods that interfere with lipid metabolism
    • Lower rates of smoking (smoking suppresses appetite) – Only 6-8 lbs wt gain
    • Medications that make patients put on weight – Herbal supplements recommended.
  • 8. Ginseng Helps Weight Loss
    • Ginseng may also be used to supplement a weight loss diet.
    • Ginseng has the ability to act as a thermogenic.
    • It increases bodily heat therefore increasing metabolism and the conversion of fat into muscle.
  • 9. Ginsenoside Stops Fat Formation
    • Phytotherapy Research Journal reports:
    • Ginsenoside Rg3, a ginseng saponin, focuses on its ability to inhibit differentiation in the cells that store energy as fat.
    • Rg3 makes the cells less able to complete the fat storage process.
  • 10. Research on Ginseng and Weight Loss
    • Ginseng was administered orally to the mice for 4 weeks.
    • The mice showed a loss of body weight and a decrease in blood glucose levels when compared to the control mice.
    • The anti-obesity effect of ginseng may result from inhibiting energy gain.
    • It related to the control of weight gain.
