Obesity affects nearly two-thirds of adults in the UK. Put simply the extra weight puts pressure around our vital organs. It makes it harder for us to fight against diseases like cancer, heart disease and COVID-19, so lowering your BMI helps to reduce your risk against these diseases, 

We get it - modern life, particularly in recent time doesn't make it easy to lose weight and most of us will gain it gradually over time. To be a healthy weight you should aim to have a BMI between 18.5 and 25. Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups (BAME) should aim to have a BMI between 16.5 and 23.
