Your Personal Weight Loss Analysis

Underweight: <18.5
Healthy: 18.5–24.9
Overweight: 25–29.9
Very Overweight: 30>

If you have a genetic predisposition to leanness, or if you are a competitive runner or other endurance athlete, and you are a healthy individual, a BMI in this range may be appropriate. Even if you are genetically thin, it is still important to focus on healthy eating habits and a variety of physical activities. However, intentional weight loss to reach this range if it's not your norm is not advised as it places you at risk for malnutrition and offers no additional health benefits.

According to medical experts, your weight falls into the healthy range, it represents the lowest level of risk for heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. To further reduce your risk, focus on healthy eating with a menu that is low in saturated fat, and rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, as well as staying active for life.* Congratulations to you if you have recently reduced your weight to this level; staying committed to your healthy lifestyle will help you maintain both your weight and your well-being.

Assuming you do not have extra muscle mass or a large skeletal frame your weight falls into the overweight range. This means you have a slightly increased risk for health problems like heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. For example, your level of risk is similar to that of an individual with a serum cholesterol level of 200. The good news is that through healthy eating and regular physical activity, you can reduce both your weight and disease risks. And to maintain your success, focus on consistent, small changes that you can build into your lifestyle.

Your weight falls into the overweight category. Assuming you do not have a high level of muscle mass and carry a large skeletal frame your weight falls into the very overweight range. This increases your risk for heart disease, diabetes and hypertension. Your level of risk may be similar to having a serum cholesterol level of 240. The good news is that by losing as little as 10% of your current weight, you can reduce your risk for all these conditions or bring them into better control if you have them. A combination of healthy eating, an active lifestyle, and a positive mindset can help you reach a personally realistic goal.
