More about BMI(Body Mass Index)
BMI is the short term that stands for your Body Mass Index. Your BMI is calculated from a ratio of your height to your weight and is used to determine if you are underweight. If your BMI is less than 18.5, then you are considered ‘underweight’; if your BMI is between 19-24.99, then you are considered within a normal weight range; if your BMI is greater than 25 but less than 30, then you are considered ‘overweight’ and if your BMI is greater than 30, you are considered ‘obese’.
There are several levels of obesity. If your BMI is above 35 (Obesity II) then you should speak to your physician about other health conditions that may be associated with obesity as you are at a higher risk of contracting obesity related illnesses and conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, gall bladder disease and many other conditions associated with obesity. Even a modest weight loss of 10% would be a great start to helping to lower your risk factors.
When talking about weight, your BMI isn’t the only tool that should be looked at. Another ratio of height to waist is also just as important as the BMI ratio of height to weight. When looking at height to waist, we are looking for a zero balance ratio, meaning that your height reflects what your ideal waist measurement is and vice versa. The reason this ratio is important, as well as your BMI is to do with where weight is stored on your body. If you happen to carry a majority of your body fat in your mid-section area, rather than having your weight evenly distributed throughout your body, then you may be at an increased risk for obesity related conditions even if you aren’t obese and even if your BMI says you are within a ‘normal weight range’!
For your optimum health, your BMI and your height to waist ratio should both be in the ideal range, however even if your numbers aren’t quite where you want them to be at the moment, our goal is to make you feel good about the steps you are taking, the knowledge you are learning and the will power you are gaining. We are here to support you on your journey. Our membership program is informative, fun and interactive. You won’t find anything like it in typical diet programs anywhere else.
