A recent study has revealed that people who spend just 45 minutes a day in the kitchen have a lower BMI than those who only spend a shorter amount of time preparing meals.
This is no doubt due to the fact that by taking the time to prepare fresh foods, you’re more inclined to make better choices. Those who spend less time in the kitchen may be inclined to eat more processed ready-meals.
Your Body Mass Index or BMI for short is calculated using your height and weight. An adult’s ideal healthy BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
The risk of certain health problems can increase depending upon where your body fat is stored, as well as by your BMI. Carrying too much fat around your waist can increase your risk of Heart Disease or Type 2 Diabetes.
Calculate your BMI by dividing your weight (kg) by your height (m).
If your BMI is 25 or more, you weigh more than is recommended for your height:
- 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight
- 30 to 39.9 is considered obese
- 40 or more is considered very obese
Taking a well-planned approach to your diet can make a real difference and this doesn’t mean you have to sped hours slaving away in the kitchen!
