Why is a healthy weight important?

It’s important to maintain a healthy weight at every age to improve your overall health and maximize your quality of life. Being overweight or obese can lead to a variety of complications, including:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Stroke
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol

If you’re overweight, returning to a healthy weight as soon as possible may reduce your risk of these complications and even reverse certain health problems that have already appeared.

One of the most common measures used to determine whether you need to lose weight is the body mass index (BMI). This measurement is calculated based on your weight and height. In general, a healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 25. 

Patients who have a BMI of 25 or more are considered overweight, while patients who have a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese.
