BMI is a measure of whether you’re a healthy weight for your height. For most adults, a BMI of 30 to 39.9 means you’re obese, explains the NHS.

How to aid weight loss

Eating a healthy, balanced diet promotes weight loss and it also helps reduce your risk of some cancers, says Macmillan Cancer support.

The charity explains: “Eating plenty of high-fibre foods helps reduce the risk of bowel cancer. Red and processed meat are linked to a higher risk of bowel and prostate cancer.”

It says to try and limit how much you eat.

Red meats include beef, pork, lamb and veal. Processed meats include sausages, bacon, salami, tinned meats, and packet meats like sandwich ham.
