Healthy Eating (11th - 24th Jun) | What is Healthy Weight?
 

Healthy weight is the one that your body naturally settles in when you maintain a nutritious diet, are physically active and have a balance between the calories you consume with the number of calories your body uses. It is the weight that appropriately fits your height and benefits your health.

A convenient way to determine whether you are underweight, healthy-weight, or overweight is by using the Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI assesses the weight in relation to the height for adults over 20 years of age and this is calculated by dividing weight in kilograms by height in meter square. BMI chart, which is referenced in the US Dietary Guidelines for Americans, can be used to find out if your weight is in the healthy range.
