Body mass index
Body mass index (BMI) is used to measure the relationship between weight and health. This method determines the body size and sees if there is risk of obesity. However, the BMI should not be considered as the unit of measurement par excellence, because it does not apply to those over 65 or at high-level athletes.
To calculate your BMI, divide the weight over the height squared. Here the interpretation of some results:
- Below 18.5: you have to gain weight because your BMI is below average, which makes you likely to suffer from certain health problems.
- Between 18.5 and 25: you have a good weight.
- Between 25 to 30: your weight is slightly above average. It is advisable to lose some weight by eating as healthily as possible.
- Above 30: your weight excessively exceeds the average, so you are more prone to risk of developing certain diseases. It is advised to follow a healthy diet and regular physical activity.
