Once the gold standard, Body Mass Index (BMI) has been used as a health indicator. Introduced in the early 19th century by a mathematician (not a physician), its intended use was as a quick way to estimate obesity. Over the decades, BMI morphed into a number that gets far more weight than it deserves. And in many cases, it’s doing more harm than good.
Dr. Dan and Angela aren’t pulling any punches when it comes to blasting BMI. Find out the pitfalls of depending on BMI to evaluate your health and the numbers that should matter in your wellness journey. As usual, they are not afraid to point out the BS for the betterment of your health and healing! You don’t want to miss this episode.
