What is a healthy weight for you?
Being overweight or underweight puts you more at risk of developing health complications. For example, your immune system and bone mass may be at risk if you're underweight, and you can have a higher chance of developing heart disease and type 2 diabetes if you're overweight.
To figure out what a healthy weight may be for you, a simple tool to use is BMI. BMI is an abbreviation of Body Mass Index, and is a measure of weight-related health risk. It is a tool that takes into account your weight in relation to your height in order to estimate the percentage of body fat. Take a look at the table below which illustrates the range of what may be healthy for you.
