A healthy weight is important

As you get older, it gets more difficult to sustain a healthy weight.

The majority of older adults tend to increase portion size while exercising less.

A high level of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and physical concerns. Body Mass Index (BMI) and waist circumference are essential tools in determining if you’ve accumulated too much fat. However, it’s always recommended to consult with a trained healthcare professional for any issues. BMI represents an individual’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. The BMI formula has been altered to accommodate weight measured in pounds and height measured in inches. You simply need a tape measure and a scale. A larger weight than what is suggested as healthy is considered to be overweight or obese. Weight that is less than the ideal recommended healthy range is referred to as underweight. To accurately take the waist circumference, place a tape measure around the middle of the torso, slightly above the hip bones. Ensure the tape remains horizontal and snug without pinching the skin. Breathe out and then take the measurement. High levels of abdominal fat raises the risk of developing obesity-related concerns, such as Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. A man with a waist circumference measuring more than 40 inches and a non-pregnant woman with a circumference measurement of more than 35 inches needs to take steps to improve health. A great way to resolve the problem is through a healthy and nutritious meal plan and vigorous physical activity. It’s not a temporary chance but a lifestyle plan. These improvements require commitment but deliver worthwhile and long-term results.
