BMI or Body Mass Index is typically measured as weight in kilograms, divided by height in meters squared. The resulting number is supposed to show if you’re underweight, at a healthy weight, overweight or obese.
The higher your BMI, the higher your risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers.
A BMI greater than or equal to 30 is considered Obese, or BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight and if you also have two or more risk factors, it is recommended that you lose weight.
Even a small weight loss of between 5% and 10% will help lower your risks.
All our weight loss programmes include a full body analysis, which measures your BMI and your body fat percentage.
