Be a healthy weight

A healthy weight is different for everyone and you don’t need scales to find out what it is.

Your healthiest weight is what you are naturally when you’re mostly eating well, enjoying regular movement and taking good care of yourself.

Below we have gathered the best available information and tools to help you eat well and move more.

Email ahealthytasmania@dhhs.tas.gov.au for more information.

Please consult a health professional for personalised advice.
