There are numbers you should know to determine your health. These are guides of course, but I recommend keeping a list and comparing your numbers against these. If they are out of alignment, begin to make adjustments.
- Weight: Each is different; the goal is your body mass index should be below 25%
- Waist: For women, should be 35 inches or less; for men 40 inches
- Cholesterol: < 150
- LDL: < 75
- HDL: >40
- Triglycerides: <150
- Blood pressure: 120 / 80
- Blood sugar: < 100
Are you aligned with your numbers? If yes, excellent. If not, what is your plan?
If you do not know your numbers, consider booking a doctor’s appointment to discover what they are. Create a list of the baseline numbers and compare the optimal numbers against the baseline numbers. Then create a plan to bring the numbers closer together. File these numbers away and bring them out regularly (at least annually) to check your progress.
