You're fatter than you think

You're deluding yourself if you think reaching a healthy weight is as simple as meeting a set number on a scale or BMI chart -- because most Americans are a whole lot fatter than either would indicate.

How much blubber you lug around is much more important, and researchers say a form of body scan called the DEXA reveals that most people carry around way too much of it -- even when their BMIs tell them they're at a healthy weight.

In fact, half of the women in a new study who wouldn't be considered obese based on BMI -- along with a quarter of all men -- actually were obese based on their DEXA scans.

Now, I don't recommend you get a DEXA scan yourself, since it's a form of X-ray and the last thing you need is more radiation.

But if you're looking to get into shape, stop obsessing over the scale and start obsessing over what's on your plate instead. Fill it with animal fats for each meal and eat until you're full. Skip the sugar and bring the carbs down to near zero, and you'll reach your ideal weight and shape no matter how you look at it.

It's that easy.

Always in fighting shape,

William Campbell Douglass II, M.D.
