Healthy Living Through Environment, Policy and Improved Clinical Care (EPICC) Program

Your Weight

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is key to preventing chronic diseases and disability. The best way to achieve a healthy weight is through healthy eating and getting the recommended level of physical activity, to balance calories with physical activity. Other lifestyle factors, including getting enough sleep and managing stress, are also important to prevent overweight and obesity.

For adults, healthy weight is defined as a BMI between 18 and 25 kg/m2. For children and adolescents, a healthy weight is between the 5th and 85th percentile for age and sex. You can determine your BMI using an online calculator.
