What is the ideal BMI?

BMI categories include underweight (BMI < 18.5), normal weight (BMI 18.5 – 24.9), overweight (BMI 25 – 29.9), and obese (BMI ≥ 30), each carrying distinct health implications.

For instance, being underweight may signal malnutrition or certain health issues, while overweight or obese statuses are linked with higher risks of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers.

Your BMI isn’t the only factor you can consider during your weight loss journey.

Waist circumference is a crucial measurement used to assess abdominal obesity and overall health risks. It involves measuring the circumference of the waist at a specific point, typically at the level of the navel.

High waist circumference is associated with an increased risk of various health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome.

Measuring waist circumference provides valuable information about the distribution of body fat, particularly visceral fat that accumulates around organs in the abdomen. Unlike BMI, which measures overall weight relative to height, waist circumference specifically targets abdominal obesity, which is a significant risk factor for chronic diseases.
