To find out if your weight is healthy for your height, submit your details to our Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator:
Your BMI falls into the underweight category.
Just as being overweight can increase your risk of developing chronic diseases, being underweight can also increase your health risk, especially in the area of vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
You need to be careful that you are not malnourished by making sure that your diet meets recommended guidelines.
You should ensure that you exercise on most days of the week - research suggests that people who are slender but unfit have higher health risks than people who are overweight and fit.
For assistance with achieving and maintaining a healthy weight you can make an appointment with one of our Dietitians by calling 1800 567 348 or contact us online.
Congratulations - your weight is healthy for your height.
Your waist measurement should be less than 80cm for women and less than 94cm for men. Slim people with a large abdominal circumference have a moderate to high risk of developing diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol levels and cardiovascular disease.
If you are in the healthy weight range but want to change your body shape, you should aim to increase your muscle mass and lose fat whilst maintaining a similar weight.
To ensure that your lifestyle is as healthy as possible, you can make an appointment with one of our Dietitians by calling 1800 567 348 or contact us online.
Your BMI falls into the overweight category.
This means that you may have an elevated risk of developing chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, sleep apnoea and degenerative arthritis. These diseases can have a major impact on your quality of life and even cause premature death.
You can decrease these health risks by losing weight - in fact even a 5% loss of body weight offers substantial health benefits. 10% weight loss is even better - with a 10% weight loss you will see and feel the difference.
At the Wesley Weight Management Clinic our clients lose an average of 14-19% of their body weight, so 10% weight loss is an achievable goal. You can see our weight loss results online.
BMI is only one tool for assessing health risks and an appointment with our Dietitians will allow more thorough assessment including waist and hip circumferences and body composition (% body fat) testing.
If you join our weight loss program we will help you to lose weight and reduce your health risks. To book your obligation-free initial assessment with a Dietitian call 1800 567 348 or contact us online.
Your BMI falls into the obese category.
This means that you have a high risk of developing chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, sleep apnoea and degenerative arthritis. These diseases can have a major impact on your quality of life and even cause premature death.
Losing 10% of your body weight does not have to be your final goal - many of our clients have lost more than 50kgs and successfully maintained their weight in the healthy range.
