Avocados, olives, cottage cheese, eggs, meats (red in moderation) & take 1 Tbsp of Braggs raw, unfiltered, with mother - Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water before meals, doesn't bother my counts. The vinegar helps with digestion, weight loss,,,etc. In two years I've never gotten use to the taste, good luck. My BMI is 24.6 haven't seen that number since I was 14-15. Stay away from fake butter, low fat dairy products, whole daily is better (once again in moderation) for diabetics, Plenty of coffee with half n half is my vice. I could get my BMI lower if they would let me weigh naked before 9 AM but no one wants to see that!
    I don't put much stock in the BMI. It's just an arbitrary number derived from an arbitrary formula. I think the tape measure is a much better tool. And the best tool of all is a full length mirror. Stand in front of it naked, or in your tighty whities if you are shy, and the truth shall be revealed to you.

    Correct! More and more medical studies are pointing at Belly Fat as being one of the worst conditions...especially as a person grows older. The Waist to Height ratio is becoming a more accepted measurement. If a person's waist is more than half their height, that person needs to find a diet/exercise routine that reduces their waist size. Anything substantially over that ratio will probably result in excess visits to the doctor, and much of the retirement funding going to prescription drugs.
    Things get better with age....I'm approaching Magnificent.
