Healthy weight

What is a healthy weight?

Healthy weight status is often based on having a body mass index (BMI) that falls in the normal (or healthy) range.

Why is healthy weight important?

Metabolic syndrome

Metabolic syndrome

A healthy body weight may lower the chances of developing health problems such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. While BMI is a good general measure, even normal weight people can sometimes be at increased health risk if they have excess weight around their tummies for which measuring waist circumference can help.

Waist circumference

Excess fat around the waist and a larger waist size increase the risk of health problems linked to obesity. Women with a waist size of more than 35 inches or men with a waist size of more than 40 inches have a higher risk of developing health problems linked to obesity, such as metabolic syndrome, diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
