At Bellambi Medical Centre we discuss a healthy diet and promote regular exercise. We regularly check weight and waist measurementsand calculate the body mass index. This should be between 20 to 25 and is in the overweight range from over 25 to 30 and in the significantly overweight range if over 30.
Waist measurements should be:
• less than 80 cm in women
• less than 95 cm in men.
Health risks such as diabetes increase significantly if the waist measurement is above 88 cm in women and above 100 cm in men.
Come in and talk to our doctors on how we can give you better advice on nutrition.
