Healthy Weight

Being overweight or obese is only one of the many factors that affect your health. Other factors include:

  • Age
  • Smoking
  • Poor eating habits
  • Low levels of physical activity
  • Family history

Being healthy isn’t about reaching a “certain number” on the scale. The number on the scale is only part of the picture. Healthy people come in a variety of body types, shapes, and sizes.

Focus on your health and not on losing weight or weight loss diets. Many different weights can be healthy as long as you are trying to make the best lifestyle choices possible. Changing your lifestyle to include healthy eating and physical activity is the best way to improve your health.

Set realistic goals and make small gradual changes in your lifestyle that can make a big difference to your health.
