Everything You Need To Know about Lose Weight

1. What is my BMI and how do I calculate it?

BMI means Body Mass Index. The value is associated with body fat and health risks.

Healthy weight is defined as a BMI equal to or greater than 19 and less than 25 among all people aged 20 or over. Between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight; more than 30 is considered obese.

To determine body mass index: [Weight in pounds ÷ Height in inches ÷ Height in inches] x 703.

Fractions and ounces must be entered as decimal values.

The metric formula is: BMI= Body Weight(kg)/height(m)2. Remember that: 2.2 lbs.=1 kg and 39.4 ins.=1m.

For example, if you are 1.75 M tall and weigh 80 kg. , your BMI will be = 80/1.75X1.75 = 26.122, i.e. slightly overweight (Always keep in mind that “obesity” is defined as a BMI greater than 30)
