Unhealthy Markers

Healthy BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a mathematical way to determine if an individual may be underweight, normal weight, overweight or obese. BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. The goal for most people is a BMI that is between 19 and 24.9. BMI over 25 is considered overweight and over 30 obese.

Check your BMI


Unhealthy Hip-to-Waist Ratio?

Waist-to-Hip ratio looks at the proportion of fat stored on your body around your waist and hip. It is a simple but useful measure of fat distribution. Most people store their body fat in two distinctive ways: around their middle (apple shape) and around their hips (pear shape). Having an apple shape (carrying extra weight around the stomach) is riskier for your health than having a pear shape (carrying extra weight around your hips or thighs). This is because body shape and health risk are linked. If you have more weight around your waist you have a greater risk of lifestyle related diseases such as diabetes than those with weight around their hips.

Women should have a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.8 or less, men should have a waist-to-hip ratio of 0.95 or less. Waist-to-hip ratio is calculated by dividing your waist measurement by your hip measurement.
