What is Healthy Weight

A healthy weight for you will depend on a number of factors including your age, height and the amount of muscle you have. This means that there is not really one ideal healthy weight and you certainly should not be comparing your weight to anyone else’s. You can assess your weight using a number of different tools including:

Body Mass Index (BMI) which measures your weight in relation to your height

Waist to hip ratio (WHR) which compares the size of your waist with the size of your hips

Waist to height ratio (WtHR) where your waist measurement should be half of your height or less

Body fat percentage which is the weight of a person’s fat divided by their total weight.

Weight management tips;


Drink a lot of water

It’s important to drink a lot of water when on a weight-loss diet. You can feel hungry during the first week, and a lot of toxins to be released into your body because of the weight loss, causing headaches. Water helps you deal with hunger and helps your body get rid of the toxins more quickly. Health authorities often recommend drinking 2 liters of fluids a day.  If water is too boring for you, try adding some mint, cucumber, lemon or ginger.


Get enough exercise
Changing your diet alone isn’t enough. Exercise is an important part of losing weight. More and more research indicates that getting as much exercise as possible throughout the day is healthy, too. So instead of reaching for your phone, walk over for a face-to-face chat with your colleague. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, and consider cycling instead of driving.


Choose a healthy diet
Cutting out sugar or carbs might help you lose weight, but it isn’t always easy to keep up. Moreover, excluding certain nutrients isn’t healthy. We need some nutrients every day, so they should always be a part of our diet. If you have a diet that adheres to good nutritional guidelines, you’re on the right track.
