How Do I Know If I Have a Healthy Weight?

To calculate your BMI, take your height and divide it with the square of your weight, keeping units consistent.

If you get a number ranging from 18.5-24.9, you’re in the right weight. Anything beyond 30 is considered obese, while anything below 18.5 is underweight. A result between 25-29.9 is overweight.

Although it isn’t perfect, your BMI gives you a general idea of your current health and is useful for older adults who are suffering from weight-related conditions.

Keeping Cholesterol Levels in Check

Many seniors have a cholesterol problem. The prevalence of the condition drives us to remind everyone to have proper and healthy nutrition.

For seniors who have cholesterol problems or for young people who wish to reduce their chances of having them, embrace a healthy lifestyle and have a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and soluble fibers. Remember that it’s easy to eat your way to an unhealthy cholesterol level, so make sure to not get caught up with unhealthy habits.
