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.

The Best Ways to Lose Weight Fast

Have you ever gotten to the last little bit of a vegetable or fruit and thought they only thing left to do was toss it? Or maybe you didn't get to one before it looked like it should be thrown out? Well there's no need to create more food waste! Here are two foods you can regrow right at home instead of throwing out.

Leftover Ginger

  1. Fill a bowl or cup with water and place your bit of ginger root inside.
  2. After a few weeks, watch for little sprouts to form.
  3. At this point, transfer the ginger to some potted soil. Give it plenty of space and moisture.
  4. After a few weeks, harvest your new ginger root!

Sprouted Potato

  1. Note where the sprouts (or eyes) are on the potato. Cut it in half so there are sprouts on both halves.
  2. Let the halves dry out overnight on a paper towel.
  3. Plant the dried potato halves in soil, cut side down.
  4. Small potatoes will be ready to harvest in about 10 weeks, while larger potatoes will be ready in about three to four months.
