What is BMI?
Your body mass index (BMI) is a measurement of your height and weight, and it can provide more insight into your body fat percentage than just weight alone. Getting your BMI into a normal range, and aiming for a healthy weight, can help you reduce numerous health risks, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and even certain cancers. Aiming to lower your weight can feel overwhelming, especially if you have a significant amount to lose. But by changing up your everyday habits, you’re more likely to reach your target weight and BMI faster. Here are some strategies.
