Jenny Craig BMI Calculator

Body mass index (BMI) is a reliable indicator of body composition according to the World Health Organisation. By using height as well as weight, body mass calculations provide a score, giving a general idea of healthy weight, underweight, overweight or obese status. With so many people suffering unwanted weight related ailments, there is no better time to take Jenny Craig weight loss guidance.

The Jenny Craig BMI Calculator is a handy asset for remaining inspired during weight loss. Most worthwhile achievements are well planned, and successful weight loss is no exception, especially when it really does transform lives for the better every day. At Jenny Craig, your weight, height, age, overall fitness, and general health are all taken into consideration, while you make the menu choices from meals specially prepared and even home delivered if desired.

How do you calculate BMI?

Body mass index is calculated using height and weight measurements, and it’s a remarkably simple way to deliver information. As your height remains the same, calculating BMI is as easy as weighing yourself on the bathroom scales. The Jenny Craig BMI Calculator can do the math for you and provide your personal BMI score. We are all built differently of course, so BMI offers useful guidelines rather than a precise assessment, and your personal Jenny Craig Consultant will guide you with deeper understanding. Body mass index is grouped as follows:

  • 18.4 or less (underweight)

  • 18.5 – 24.9 (healthy weight)

  • 25.0 – 29.9 (overweight)

  • 30.0 or more (obese)

Although initial findings may be disheartening, help is on hand even for obese people and others who find themselves overweight. You are not alone, and when you join Jenny Craig you have a support network of like-minded people. And of course, in a fast-moving world where convenience is key, the advantage of enjoying personalised ready-made meals is a hard to resist dieting option. At Jenny Craig, we spoil you for choice with healthy cuisines designed by celebrity chefs and prepared by professionals.

What factors influence the BMI calculator?

Any conversation about weight will include muscle and fat considerations. As a measuring means that doesn’t discriminate between the weight of fat or muscle, BMI becomes a personal assessment tool. In most cases, unwanted weight gain can be attributed to bad eating and lifestyle choices. The Jenny Craig BMI Calculator is ideal for addressing issues where excess fat is adding weight. Muscle-builders on the other hand, can weigh in at ‘obese’ BMI levels even while competing at an international level, as can many other fitness buffs and sportspeople.

BMI isn’t suitable for pregnant women and most growing children, and professional medical advice is always advisable if in doubt of the efficacy of any treatment path. Most doctors however, highly recommend diet and weight loss methods that are safely performed by experts with decades of experience. At Jenny Craig, we not only get you started, we are on hand during every phase of weight loss, from initial consultation to a self-reliant transition where healthy meal choices are the norm, and an improved appearance is a weekly treat.

What is a healthy BMI?

As we see all around us, healthy people come in all shapes and sizes. However, good health shouldn’t be taken for granted, and there are strategies for maintaining good physical and emotional agility and alertness. People are living longer than in the past, and remaining independent into old age is a very real possibility when healthy foundations are in place. A healthy BMI between 18.5 – 24.9 is an ideal that most people can successfully aim for to achieve positive outcomes, and just another way Jenny Craig can help guide your weight loss journey.

What should you consider when calculating your BMI?

Apart from the obvious considerations of weight and height used in BMI measurements, you will also need to appraise other aspects of your life. Lifestyle choices including exercise (or lack thereof) will influence the way you calculate personal BMI, while all Jenny Craig weight loss strategies automatically take your statistics into account. Obvious signs of fat, for example in the belly or thighs, will be confirmed by accurate BMI results that are reflected in weight loss targets.

Once you speak to a Jenny Craig Consultant and start to develop your personalised weight loss plan, you will see how everything fits in place for steady weight loss. The Jenny Craig BMI Calculator is just a small part of our support that continues to transform lives around the world, and we look forward to assisting you in making the change you deserve. We believe in keeping weight loss real, where a little commitment and determination reaps impressive rewards that include better health and better looks for everyone to appreciate.
