This short leaflet explains why being overweight increases your risk of heart and circulatory diseases, and why where you carry excess weight on your body is important.
It also tells you how to measure your weight and gives you advice on keeping a healthy weight.
Please note there is an error on page 7, BMI chart. The overweight category is incorrect and should be BMI 25 – 29.9. We will be correcting this error at the next print run in early 2019.
