Healthy weight

Achieve and maintain a healthy weight to benefit your physical and mental health.

How much you eat and exercise can be influenced by:

  • busy lifestyles
  • food and drink adverts
  • how much money you have
  • the weather
  • your friends.

You need to find a balance between:

  • how much, how often and what you eat, and
  • doing activities you enjoy.

Check your Body Mass Index (BMI) to know the healthy weight for your height. NHS gives details about what is a healthy weight.
