Healthy Weight
Have you ever thought about your current body weight? It is within healthy range or not? "Underweight", "normal", "overweight", and "obese" are all terms used for different ranges of weight. Underweight means that your body weight is lower than it should be for your health. Obese and overweight mean that your body weight is greater than it should be for your health. Your healthy body weight depends on your age, sex and height. In case of children, it also depends on the age.
Body Mass Index
BMI Category
Below 18.5 Underweight
18.5 - 24.9 Healthy
25.0 - 29.9 Overweight
30.0 - 39.9 Obese
Over 40 Extreme or high risk obesity
Waist Size
Waist size is another important deciding factor to know whether your weight is within normal limits or not. There are greater chances of health problems if you are having too much fat around your waist than having fat in other body parts. If we compare two overweight people with same BMI, the person who has bigger waist circumference will be at a greater risk of developing health problems due to excess weight. This means that there is greater risk of health problems if you carry extra fat mainly around your waist (apple-shaped body) rather than on your hips and thighs (pear-shaped body).

It has been proved through various studies that women having a waist size of more than 35 inches and men with a waist size of more than 40 inches may have greater chances of developing diseases related to obesity.
Reasons behind weight gain
We all know that diet full of fried foods, large portions, desserts, alcohol and sugary drinks can easily lead to weight gain. It happens because you take in more calories than you burn by physical activity. But sometimes you gain weight even after following healthy diet and regular exercise.

Here are five reasons that can cause the needle on the scale to go up when you are least expecting it-

Lack of sleep
If your body does not get enough rest, it experiences physiological stress and it tends to store fat more efficiently. Without proper sleep, you feel tired and stressed which can lead to overeating as a coping mechanism. You can also indulge in late night snacking which adds more calories to your daily diet.

It is very difficult to follow a healthy diet plan when you are under stress. During times of stress, you may eat more to fulfill emotional needs also called as emotional eating. It may also make you choose high calorie foods even when you are not hungry. High calorie foods trigger an increase in the brain chemical Serotonin, which has a calming affect. So munching on calorie rich food makes you feel better.

Medicines which are used to treat depression, migraine, blood pressure and diabetes can cause weight gain of as much as 10 pounds per month. Some steroidal medications and even oral contraceptives can lead to gradual weight gain. So even after following a healthy lifestyle, if you have gained 5 or more pounds in a month then you can blame it on your medicine cabinet.

Medical condition
Medical condition that commonly causes weight gain is hypothyroidism. Deficiency of thyroid hormone causes slowing of metabolism and weight gain. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are feeling tired, lethargic, hoarse voice, intolerance to cold, sleeping too much or having frequent headaches. You should see your doctor for an easy test to determine thyroid hormone levels if you are experiencing above symptoms.

Menopause leads to hormonal changes in women's body. This can trigger depression, hunger and disturbed sleep. During menopause there is decrease in estrogen which leads to changes in the shape of body. They tend to lose more weight around hips and thighs and gain weight around mid- body. Body shape can be maintained by exercise, healthy diet and taking supplements like Biona Shape.

Health Problems due to excess weight
If you come under the category of being overweight or obese than you face higher than average risk of 50 different health problems. These health problems which are also the nation's leading cause of death include- heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure and certain cancers.

There is another big problem related with excess weight is depression which can have profound, negative impact on your daily life. Some of the major health problems due excess body weight are-

Biona Burn helps you in staying slim
Biona Burn - The ultimate fat burning formula
Green coffee bean extract helps burn fat faster. Green coffee beans contain chlorogenic acid, which is proven to help burn fat. Green coffee beans alter how glucose is absorbed and has an effect on digestion. It speeds up the metabolism and increases the rate of energy production and fat burning process. As a result, fatty acids get removed from the fat cells of the body for quick weight loss.

Studies have shown that chlorogenic acid may slow down the absorption of fat from food and act as an agent that activates metabolism of fat. Traditionally brewed coffee doesn't serve as a good source of chlorogenic acid as the roasting process removes a significant portion of the key chlorogenic acid component. So to get the maximum benefit from green coffee beans it is important to save it from roasting process. Biona Burn brings you this benefit by providing you 100% pure green coffee bean extract to help you achieve perfect body weight and shape.

Tips to lose weight
It is quite challenging to maintain a healthy weight and losing weight is even tougher. There are many simple but effective ways to avoid common dieting mistakes, achieve desired weight and make a healthier relationship with food.

Maintaining weight is a balancing act. But it is quite simple to understand: If you consume more calories than you burn, you put on weight. If you take fewer calories than you burn, you lose weight.

Never miss breakfast
People usually skip breakfast thinking that it will help them in losing weight but missing meals does not help in losing weight but deprives you of essential nutrients. Breakfast is most important meal of the day because it wakes up your system and gears up the metabolism so it's ready to work throughout the day. If you miss on breakfast it can lead you to snacking more throughout the day because you feel hungry.

Take regular meals
It has been proved that eating regularly during the day helps to burn calories at a faster rate and also reduces the temptation to munch on foods high in fat and sugar.

Eat more fruits and vegetables
Fruits and vegetables are low in calories but high in fiber and nutrients. These are essential for a successful weight loss. They also supply you with plenty of vitamins and minerals.

Staying active
Many studies have proved that regular exercise is the key to losing weight and staying fit. In addition to numerous health benefits, exercise helps in burning extra calories which you are not able to cut through diet alone.

Stay hydrated
Sometimes we get confused between thirst and hunger and we end up consuming extra calories when a glass of water is really what is required. To avoid such situation, you should stay hydrated by taking about six to eight glasses (1.2 liters) of fluids everyday or more on hot days.

Switch to high-fiber foods
Foods which are rich in fiber keep you feeling full for longer time, which is perfect if you want to lose weight. Examples of fiber rich foods are fruits, vegetables, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice, peas and lentils.

Take smaller portions
Using smaller plates and bowls is a very easy and quick way of reducing your portion size and calories. By eating in smaller plates and bowls, you gradually develop a habit of eating smaller portions of food without feeling hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for the message to reach your brain that you are full so always eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full.

Don't restrict your self
Don't deprive yourself of any food during your weight loss plan, especially the ones you really like. Restricting favorite foods will only make you crave for them even more. You can enjoy occasional treat by staying within your daily calorie allowance.

Avoid junk food
To control your temptation for junk food, avoid stocking it at home, such as biscuits, chocolates, cakes, chips and sweet fizzy drinks. Instead, stock up healthy snacks, such as fruits, nuts, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn and fresh fruit juice.

Preplan your meals
Keeping your calorie allowance in mind, try to plan your breakfast, lunch and dinner for the week. This will help you in buying and preparing appropriate meals for yourself and not indulging in last minute snacking.

Dieting mistakes
Are you trying hard to lose some weight but you are not able to achieve it? More than likely, you are making common diet mistakes. Here is a list of common diet mistakes people usually make. You may find few of these very familiar.

Rapid eating
Due to our busy schedules we generally adopt the unhealthy habit of rapid eating. This leads to eating without properly chewing the food and also leads to over-eating and weight gain.

Skipping meals
It is a common misconception that skipping breakfast or any other meal of the day leads to effective weight loss. But studies have shown that breakfast skippers weigh more than breakfast eaters. People who eat less than three meals in a day usually end up consuming high calorie snacks during the day.

Calories from fluids
Calories from fluids like sweetened juices, tea, sodas, alcohol, smoothies and coffee with cream can lead to high calorie consumption and weight gain. When you take fluids along with food, you don't tend to compensate by eating less because beverages do not impact hunger. Switch from sweetened beverages to water, club soda, skim milk and vegetable juices.

Unhealthy toppings
We usually tend to top off our healthy diet like salads and soups with high-calorie toppings like bacon, cheese, croutons, butter and creamy dressings. This makes it more delicious but the calorie count goes really high and the whole purpose of eating a healthy diet is ruined.

Fat-free foods
We usually assume that "low-fat" or "fat-free" mean low-calorie or calorie-free food. This is not the case all the time. Extra sugars and thickeners are often added to such pre-packed foods to enhance the flavor and texture. The best way is to check the sugar, fat and calorie content on the food labels of packaged food before consuming it.
