Body Mass Index - what does it mean?

Body mass index, or BMI, is one way to assess whether your weight is in the healthy range. 

The BMI combines a person’s height and weight to form a measure that can help predict their risk of developing disease. 

Another useful measure of determining whether you could be at risk of obesity-related chronic diseases is your waist circumference. Waist circumference is a better predictor than BMI of type 2 diabetes in women and of cardiovascular disease.

What's your BMI?

Knowing your BMI (body mass index) is a good way to check if you are in the 'healthy' weight range. Remember though, that this gives you an estimate only. We are all different but calculating  your BMI does give you a good indication as to your healthy weight range.

You can check yours here at the Heart Foundation https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/your-heart/know-your-risks/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator
