Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body mass index is a measurement tool used to assess how much an individual’s body weight is compared to what is ‘ideal’ or ‘desirable’ for a person of his or her height.
A BMI of less than 18.5% is considered underweight and a BMI greater than 25 is considered overweight. Over 25 indicates an increased risk of stroke, diabetes and heart attack. Maintaining a healthy weight is vital to achieve overall health and long life. Keeping a normal BMI of between 18.5-24.9 is a good indicator of your current health.
At Conefreys were provide a private consultation to calculate and discuss your current BMI and provide advise on ways to optimise a healthy weight.
Underweight = <18.5
