Weight Management

Healthy eating and healthy action, as part of your daily routine, are the keys to maintaining a healthy weight and reducing obesity. By comparison, fad dieting and stop-start exercise programmes give the worst results in the long term and it is the long-term on which you need to focus for best health results. 

Your pharmacist has some great weight loss programmes and tools to help you achieve your goals using a step wise approach that is tailored to suit your needs.

What is a healthy body weight?

ou can answer these questions by measuring around your waist, and calculating your BMI. Your BMI figure is your weight (in kilograms) divided by your height (in metres) squared. For example, if you weigh 62 kg and are 1.6m tall, your BMI is 24.2 which is in the normal range of 18.5 to 24.9.

At what weight are you considered overweight?

A BMI greater than 25 is considered overweight; above 30 puts you at considerable risk of ill health. Your pharmacist can assist you with the measurement, interpret the outcomes and work with you to put together a healthy eating plan and workout programme.
