NSC Clinics Weight Loss Tools
Am I overweight or obese? A good way to check if you are a healthy weight or if you're suffering from obesity is to use Body Mass Index (BMI).
Your BMI is a measure of whether you're a healthy weight for your height. It can indicate whether you have an inflated risk of serious health problems and whether you are obese. Calculate your BMI by using our online BMI calculator.
It is extremely important to know your waist measurement so you can check if you are carrying any excess weight around your stomach to help avoid any health issues.
To find out more information and to calculate your waist measurement, use the link below.
Keeping a food diary can help you with your weight loss as it will make it easier to calculate what you have consumed that day and how many calories (meaning you can tailor your meals to ensure you are not going over your daily calorie allowance).

Waist to Hip Ratio
The Hip to Waist ratio measures the circumference of your waist to that of your hips. This is an important indicator of how healthy your body shape is and is also a measurement of obesity and visceral fat, which in turn is a possible indicator of other more serious health conditions such as heart disease.View Calculator

How Many Calories Should I Eat Per Day?
If you are trying to lose weight, this calculator could be the answer, as it will determine how many calories you should eat on a daily basis.View Calculator
To find out how many calories you need to function daily you need to calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). BMR tells you the minimum amount of energy your body needs every day. If you add exercise into the calculation, you can find out your average calorie need.
If you know your BMR, it is much easier to design a successful weight loss programme tailored to your lifestyle. If you know the number of calories your body consumes daily, you can easily figure out how many calories per day to eat to keep functioning and lose weight.
