What is your healthy body weight?


Everywhere we look in the Western world, we find images, icons, icons and impressions of 'perfect' women! The truth is that many of these images are somehow altered or enlarged and do not reflect the image of ordinary women. The pressure to lose weight is enormous when we are bombarded with media every day that sell subtle, sexual appeal and fashion products. The constant message is that agility will make you want.

Western countries have experienced high-fat, high-sugar seas with current demographic trends, and physical instability. It's time to dump her and move on. The most important reason to want a healthy body weight is for health rather than how your body looks.

Overweight and obesity are major health problems in Western countries. Since the 1980s, both adult men and women have become heavier, with obesity rates more than doubling in the last 20 years! Children are also getting heavier. There is a growing concern that we are inadvertently training our overweight children to become obese adults. That being said, we are digging our graves with our teeth! So how do we determine what a healthy body weight is for each individual?

How do you tell if you are overweight?

Since we are all different shapes and sizes, a recommended weight for your height is not recommended. Instead there is a weight limit that is healthy for your height. One way to measure your weight is to calculate your body mass index or BMI.

Your BMI is a ratio or comparison of your height and weight that is expressed in numbers. To check your BMI, you need to divide your weight (measured in kilograms) by your height (measured in meters). If you do not know your measurements in the metric system, you can find any number of BMI calculators online which will turn into experimental steps for you. One such calculator is on the website below.

The accepted definitions of weight category by BMI are:


Low weight - less than 18.5 BMI


Healthy weight - BMI between 18.5 and 24.9


Overweight - BMI equivalent to 25 and 29.9


Obesity - BMI equal to or greater than 30


These BMI values   only apply to adults 18 years of age or older and are based on a study of Caucasian populations. Therefore, they do not apply to children and adolescents and may not be appropriate for people from other cultural backgrounds.

Another way to check your weight is to circumnavigate your back using a tape measure. This gives you an idea of   whether you have a lot of fat stored in the middle. The lumbar spine associated with increased health risk is:

Waist circumference over 94cm for men

Waist circumference for women is more than 80cm

Having a healthy weight can help.

- Improve blood cholesterol levels, blood pressure and blood glucose levels


- Reduce the risk of other health problems


- Improving self-esteem and self-confidence


- Make it easy to stay physically active.


If you are obese or overweight, try not to gain extra weight. This will help you in the years to come as people gain weight with age. It's best to take care of your body and follow a healthy lifestyle that includes a nutritious, delicious, healthy weight loss program. Losing just 10 pounds can significantly improve your overall health.
