Navigating Weight Management for Optimal Health



There is a very important relationship between body weight and good health. Maintaining a healthy weight can reduce the risk of various health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. However, it’s important to note that health is influenced by many factors beyond just weight, including diet, exercise, genetics, and overall lifestyle habits.

Obesity is a medical condition characterised by excessive accumulation of body fat to the extent that it may have adverse effects on health. It is typically defined by a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, but other factors, such as waist circumference and body composition are also considered.

BMI is a measure used to assess a person’s body weight relative to their height. It is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters. It is commonly used as an indicator of whether a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese.
