 FOOD STORAGE:

How do I store my meals?

All of InstaDiet’s meals are an ambient meal, which means they are shelf-stable. This means that they can be safely stored at room temperature. Just ensure that they are consumed before their ‘best-before’ date.

The reason why they can be stored for a long time is because of the technology used in the preparation and packaging of the meals.

What is the process of creating ambient meals?

First, the meals are planned and prepared by our expert chefs.

Then they are sealed in a pouch and steamed at a high temperature in a specialized machine.

BODY MASS INDEX

What is Body Mass Index (BMI) ?

Your BMI measurement tells you if you have healthy weight for your height.

What does my BMI indicate?

Your BMI tells you if you are at a higher risk of health problems that are associated with being overweight or obese. Thus, higher your BMI, higher the risk of health-related complications.

What are the BMI ranges?
  • If your results are below 18.5, this indicates that you may be underweight.
  • If your results are between 18.5 and 24.9, this indicates you are in the healthy weight range.
  • If your result is between 25 and 29.9, this indicates you may be overweight.
  • If your BMI is 30 or above, this indicates you may be obese.

What if I am not in a 'healthy' range?

You should consult your doctor or medical practitioner about how to get a healthy body weight if your BMI falls outside the “healthy" weight range. If your results indicate that you are overweight or obese, you may need to reduce your weight. To achieve that, you need to get on a calorie deficit diet and incorporate exercise in your lifestyle.

 Who is the BMI calculator for?

The body mass index calculations are primarily for adults.

What are the limitations of BMI?

BMI is a useful measurement tool for most people, but it has its limitations.
- BMI does not distinguish between fat and muscles, so muscular people who are perfectly fit show higher BMIs.
- BMI does not apply to women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Are there any other indicators?

Indicators like waist circumference measurement and waist to hip ratio are helpful tools for gauging health risks.
