How healthy is our weight according to our height?

If we do not pay attention to our weight with age and if we are overweight, we will face various health problems. Weight is closely related to human height.

A healthy weight depends on a number of factors. These include age, muscle and fat ratio, height, gender, and body size. Whether weight is healthy or not can be determined from BMI.

What is BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is one of the most popular ways to find a healthy or normal weight. It is a measure of a person’s weight and height.

BMI Diagnosis Formula

BMI = weight (kg) / (height (m) x height (m))

  • A BMI of less than 18.5 means a person’s weight is less.
  • 18.5 to 24.9 is called standard BMI.
  • BMI between 25 and 29.9 means more weight.
  • BMI over 30 indicates obesity.
