SHARE's Tips to You

What is the healthy weight for you?

Two standard measures for seeing if you are at a healthy weight include:

  • Checking your BMI
    The body mass index (BMI) is a measure of weight in relation to height. While a BMI score of 18.5 to 24.9 usually indicates a healthy weight for adults, the BMI is limited in how well it gauges body fat in older people or those who have lost muscle.  Calculate your BMI.
  • Measuring your Waist Circumference (WC)
    This tells you if you carry extra fat around your abdomen. Abdominal fat is measured because this is where the fat might be coating your internal organs, and WC is used as an indicator of risk for heart disease and stroke. See More.
If you are concerned about your weight speak to your GP about talking to a Dietitian.
How can you follow a healthy eating plan?

Control portion sizes 
A portion is the amount of one food you eat in a single sitting. 

  • Be present during mealtimes - Try to avoid eating in front of the TV, computer, or other screen as you may unconsciously end up overeating.
  • Be informed - Nutrition labels can be hard to read! And often "Serving sizes" claimed by manufacturers don't match what we eat in reality. Click here for some tips on knowing what to look for.
Check in with your health care provider if:
  • You're planning on starting a daily vitamin - they can help you determine if it's necessary and when you should be taking it to maximise its effect!
  • Your medicines may be making your food taste bad or affecting your appetite.
