Your BMI is in the overweight range

When a person's BMI reaches the overweight range, it means that their weight is above the recommended healthy or normal range for their height. This may lead to a higher risk in developing cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and diabetes. As one's BMI increases, so does one's risk for developing or exacerbating health problems.

An overweight individual should consult with a doctor on how to start an effective weight loss program as soon as possible. They are in luck though, as all they may need to do is to employ a well planned fitness regimen and a balanced diet. With enough dedication, they may find themselves within their normal BMI range in a few weeks.
