The 3 Biggest Health Mistakes You are Making


Welcome to Optim-us4Life! Thank you for listening


Optim-us4Life host Scott Lee Kunkel gets you moving, fueling, resting & centered


In this episode I will discuss the 3 biggest mistakes that most people make day in and day out and how to correct them.


Hydration: How much water should you be drinking and why.


Healthy Fats: What are they and why are they important.


Energy In/Out vs. Movement: Are you eating too LITTLE? Are you moving too little?


Calculate your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate):


BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in years)


BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age in years)


Multiply to get your TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure):

1.2 if you’re sedentary (little or no exercise)

1.375 if you’re lightly active (you exercise 1-3 times a week)

1.55 if you’re moderately active (you exercise or work about average)

1.725 if you’re very active (you train hard for 6-7 days a week)

1.9 if you’re highly active (you’re a physical laborer or a professional athlete)
