Dr. Mark Hyman's 30-Day Overfat Plan

Determine if you're overfat with this easy equation.

When it comes to your weight, it gets a bit more complicated than simply labeling yourself overweight or obese. Overfat, a term coined by Dr. Mark Hyman, director of Cleveland Clinic's Center for Functional Medicine and author of "Eat Fat, Get Thin", is much more specific to your health than just a number on the scale. As Dr. Hyman explains, you can be overfat but not overweight or obese and you can be overweight or obese but super lean since your BMI doesn't take body fat into account. If you want to find out where you stand, try the W.T.H.R formula: multiply your waist size by two, if that number is greater than your height in inches, you are considered overfat.

In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
