Are you overweight? A BMI (body mass index) of 25 to 30 is overweight; 30 to 40 is obese; and, over 40 is severely obese. A BMI of less than 18.5 is officially classed as underweight. A BMI of 18.5 to 25 is normal.

To calculate your BMI, measure your height in metres and square it (multiply the figure by itself). Measure your weight in kilograms and divide your weight by your height squared. For instance, if you are 1.6m tall and weigh 65kg, the calculation will be:

*1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56

*65 ÷ 2.56 = 25.39

In this example, the person has a BMI of 25.39, so she’s overweight but not by much.

TESTIMONY:

My name is Uju, an avid reader of Body Perfect column in the Allure Vanguard. I visited the Body Perfect office in February 2011 because of my stomach. I am a very skinny person but due to a C-section I had in December, my stomach hadn’t gone down. It was very embarrassing as people still thought I was still pregnant. When Princess Kathy saw me, she told me to come back after delivery. I had to tell her that there was no baby there. I actually looked 7 months pregnant!

Consequently, I signed up for the 30-day Beach Detox Diet. One week into the programme, I was diagnosed with Hepatitis. I became sad and depressed. I was told that I had to run a series of tests before I could be placed on medication.

I informed Kathy and she told me to continue with the programme; that it was a liver infection and that the cleansing will help. Three weeks later, I completed the Beach Body programme and my stomach really went down, but not down enough for me to stop so, I signed up for another one month.

I was then called to begin my Hepatitis treatment; my doctor ordered another test before I was to begin the drugs. To my greatest surprise and that of the doctor’s, there was no trace of Hepatitis anymore! I called Princess Kathy who told me that it was the cleansing programme and the liver-friendly detox diet that helped.

My stomach is now down and in the process Hepatitis gone! I am full of energy and I am so happy. I eat healthy and most importantly I am looking and feeling good.

Keep it up Kathy; you are sure doing a good work. God bless you.
