1st Meeting With Science Officer (Nutrition)





On 16 April 2012, actually went to see Puan Siti Rohana Din who is a nutritionist from Pejabat Kesihatan Daerah Seberang Perai Utara. We had interviewed her about health especially on proper diet. We also ask her about the problem of obesity. According to her, the health of our body doesn't depend on our body appearance. Big size doesn't mean that you are not healthy and being thin also doesn't mean you are healthy. Puan Rohana said people always misunderstood about this. So to make sure about our health, we need to go for check up and live your life decently. In addition, the need of our body is not the same like others so don't just make a conclusion based on others condition okay... What we should do is to take meal according to our need and make sure balance it with other activity.






Puan Siti Rohana also shared to us the table below which show the international classification of adult underweight, overweight and obesity according to BMI:

    1. hello nadiah....
      actually not only our BMI..our aim is that u have to full check up..like glucose level,cholesterol level... you know even your BMI is okay..but it doesn't mean that your cholesterol level also in good condition... this is just an example... all u need to do is practice to stay healthy and at the same time refer to the expertise. thanks!!!
