How to check your BMI (BMI Calculator) to see if you are in a healthy weight range. To do this you need your current weight (kg) and height (cm) measurements. This will give you a number that is called your Body Mass Index (BMI)
You can calculate your Body Mass Index using the BMI Calculator below.
Understanding your BMI result
Being underweight could be a sign you’re not eating enough or you may be ill. If you’re underweight, we can assist you with nutritional advice on how to get your weight back to a healthy range. A detailed programme is created for you with recipes and a shopping list to make it as easy as possible.
A healthy weight range is where you want to be, so that is great if you are at the ideal body weight for you. But do remember this is a wide range and further tweaking may be required regarding your fat stores and muscle mass. Important to prevent future health issues.
If you are overweight chances are you have tried a few if not several times to change this. Weight loss is a specialist area at 121 Dietitian and we have helped thousands of people safely lose weight and most importantly keep this in control and enjoy life. A combination of following our specialist personalised plan and building in appropriate exercise is the goal.
It can feel lonely and overwhelming when you are faced with the thought of losing weight. Chances are like many in the overweight BMI range you have tried on many occasions to tackle this yourself or with some form of general programme and ended up back to the weight you were or heavier.
We work with you to ensure this doesn’t happen again. It can take several months to get everything optimal in your health to see successful and permanent weight loss. You may need some blood tests for this which we will guide you on. A personalised programme is created for you and you will be monitored for up to a year to ensure you are meeting your goals.
