Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is a mathematical calculation that is used as an indicator of whether you are at a healthy weight for your height.
Calculating your BMI is a simple sum that only requires your weight and height to calculate.
Maintaining a healthy weight is important for your health. The BMI is a simple means of getting a rough estimate on whether you are at risk of developing lifestyle and weight related health conditions. Once you know your current BMI value, the health professionals at Nourish Health can assist you in achieving a transition to a healthy BMI range, if required. It is important to note however, that there are some limitations to the BMI measurement as it is based on weight, and cannot provide a reading of body muscle versus body fat percentages. Luckily we have scales at Nourish Health that can investigate further any BMI readings that do not fall in the normal healthy range.
