Let’s start by saying that your BMI (Body Mass Index) doesn’t indicate how healthy you are! Everyone’s body is built differently which means that someone with a low BMI can have health issues while someone with a high BMI can be perfectly healthy (it’s not smart to judge someone’s health based on body size). Even though being overweight is associated to a high amount of illness’s, your best reference is taking care of your body with: regular checkups with the doctor, healthy food habits and exercising.

There’s a few general tips that can come in handy when it comes to being healthy through your nutrition.
