I think I’m fat, but my friends say I’m not. How do I know who is right?

eating disorderIt can be hard to know what a healthy weight actually is because we’re so used to seeing super thin models and celebrities in magazines and on TV. One way of checking if you’re at a healthy weight is to calculate your BMI and to talk to your health care provider about what that number means. Since BMI is an estimate of body fat, this number can give you an idea about whether your weight is in a healthy range. Try not to worry about numbers such as weight and BMI too much, though. It’s much more important that you feel good about yourself. Eat healthy and stay active!
