We often hear the term "overweight", but what is the most ideal approach to find out if we are overweight?


The two most commonly used methods of determining whether a person is overweight are Body Mass Index (BMI) or the contour of the diaphragm. Both have limitations when used without others. For this reason, it is ideal to measure both together to touch the base at the tightest end.


Weight index (BMI)


The weighted index (BMI) is determined by your height and weight. The recipe for determining your BMI is:


Weight (kg) / [height (m)] 2


BMI is a measure of the muscle / fat ratio and may indicate your risk of developing more muscle than fat. The higher your BMI, the higher the risk of certain diseases, for example. As heart disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, respiratory problems, and some malignant diseases. Weight orders based on your BMI values ​​are as follows:




Under 18.5 years old = underweight


18.5-24.9 = normal weight


25.0 to 29.9 = overweight


More than 30.0 = obesity


Although BMI can be used by most people, there are some limitations:


This may overestimate the muscle / fat ratio in competitors and other people with strong forms.


This could decrease the muscle / fat ratio in more established people and other people who have lost muscle.

Appreciating the contour of the waist helps to identify the potential welfare dangers associated with being overweight. The middle section estimates fat around the waist and not at the hips. The circumference of the median section is estimated in inches. People with higher abdominal circumference have a higher risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. This danger is greater for people of average height than 35 ramps for women or 40 ramps for men. To accurately measure your waistline, simply place a measuring tape in the middle of your gut. For more accurate results, measure your size shortly after inhalation.


The importance of weight loss for overweight people can not be overstated. Even a small weight reduction (between 5 and 10% of your maximum weight) can reduce the risk of overweight diseases.


Note that both estimates of BMI and the contours of the middle portion are limited if they are used without another person. Therefore, it is ideal to quantify both together to determine your weight status as accurately as possible.
