What does your BMI tell you???
This means you are UNDERWEIGHT and need advice regarding healthy diet and lifestyle. You can consult our nutritionist to guide you.
Great. Your BMI stands in the NORMAL category and you just need to maintain your healthy lifestyle and regular exercise/yoga.
Word of caution- Don’t relax and there’s always room for improvement.
BMI in the above range means you are in the OVERWEIGHT category.
You need to bring certain changes in your dietary habits and exercise regularly to take charge of yourself. You can also consult us for liposuction and other body contouring ways to make you look fit/ beautiful
P.S- Some people in this range can be healthy eg. Muscular individuals. So, you need to have your Body Composition Analysis done that calculates the amount of fat, muscle and bone content.
Your BMI makes you CLASS 1 OBESE.
