Sebelumnya kami sudah pernah membahas cara menghitung BMI dan tolak ukurnya (klik di sini kalau kalian belum lihat). Kali ini kami akan membantumu mempermudah perhitungan berat badan ideal berdasarkan BMI orang dewasa. Berikut tabelnya:
Hai, sebenarnya ini adalah artikel yang pernah kami tulis dulu di sosial media kami. Tapi karena dirasa berguna, kami akan merepostnya dan kali ini dalam bahasa Indonesia! If you prefer to read it in English, click here.
We were lucky enough to be part of the very first Ubud Food Truck Park. We gotta say it's a huge success. Lots of people came, way more than we expected.The event was well prepared and managed. The band was amazing. The weather was friendly. The flow of people was great. We, as one of the vendors, were very satisfied with UFTP team. Great job!
Water, as we all know, is very VERY crucial for survival. People can go up to a month without food, but only few days without water. Water contributes 60% of the weight of an average male, and 55% percent of the weight of an average female considering female has relatively greater percentage of body fat.
Ideally, men need to obtain at least 2.5 liters of water per day whereas women 2 liters per day. This can be achieved partly from beverages and partly from moisture-rich foods such as soups. Children should drink approximately half of this amount, depending on their age. One easy way to check our hydration status is thru our urine color that should be pale in color. Urine that is dark yellow and concentrated is an important sign of dehydration.
Although we should ideally drink at least eight glasses of water a day, most of us doesn’t. They even barely drink by having less than four glasses water daily. Unfortunately, thirst receptors are not a sensitive judge of how fluid-deficient you are, and you are already quite dehydrated by the time you feel a craving to drink.
The brain is particularly sensitive to changes in fluid balance. Dehydration is a common cause of tiredness, poor concentration, reduced alertness, reduced short-term memory, headache, and mood changes, with increasing agitation, impatience, and feelings of stress.
Dehydration also contributes to constipation, kidney stones, and , as it increases the thickness and stickiness of blood, can lead to abnormal blood clotting and even precipitate a heart attack or stroke. Therefore, it is important to drink fluids throughout the day rather than just when you are feeling thirsty.
Tea, Coffee, and Hydration
As caffeine has a mild diuretic effect, it is often claimed that caffeinated drinks, such as tea, have a negative effect on hydration. However, research does not support this.
A gold-standard study shows that there were no significant difference in hydration status whether participants drank four mugs of black tea (each containing 50mg caffeine) or drank boiled water at set intervals over one day. Even the urine volume and color also remained the same.
Another study shows that there were no significant differences across a wide range of haematological and urinary markers of hydration status between coffee and water drinkers. Their data suggest that coffee, when consumed in moderation provides similar hydrating qualities to water.
Tea and coffee drinkers? You’re safe.

Those who have been our healthy catering customer might've noticed that we sprinkle some seeds on almost all of our food, especially salads. One of the seeds that we often use is flaxseed. In this article we would like to discuss the reason why we love flaxseed and you should too.
Last Friday (December 16th), we were part of Canggu Club Annual Christmas Bazaar held in--of course--Canggu Club from 12 to 6 pm. Canggu Club is the number 1 sports and entertainment centre located in Canggu, Bali. The bazaar was held at the same time as their school's End of Term Break Up Party, so it wasn't a surprise to see the place packed with kids and their parents/guardians.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a commonly used and one of the easiest screening tools to determine healthy body weight.
As easy as it is, many healthcare experts question its accuracy because it's only based on height and weight. It doesn't count on gender and age. That's why muscular men might have high BMI yet looking fitter than women or less muscular men with the same BMI. Bare in mind, muscle cell is heavier than fat cell.
Nonetheless, when it comes to evaluating weight and it's impact on health, combining all the information (BMI, body fat percentage, waist-hip ratio, and physical activity) provides the best assessment.
Hence, knowing you BMI is the easiest step to get the idea where you're at.
So, let's do this simple calculation!
Do you know that our brain cell can only use glucose as fuel and nothing else?
By promoting stable blood glucose levels, wholegrain promotes optimum brain function, memory recall, and concentration.
A cereal breakfast is especially helpful for fueling the brain as it boosts glucose levels at crucial time of the day, after the long overnight fast.
Researchers have found that adults who regularly eat a cereal breakfast are less depressed, less emotionally distressed, and have lower stress levels.
Important note here, carbohydrates only have a beneficial, alerting effect, on mood if eaten in the morning on waking, and not when you eat them later in the day.
We can go on and on on the importance of breakfast, but then the message is only one; do not skip breakfast! And always pick the wholegrain whenever you can for optimum benefits.
