Whether you are overweight or obese? Know your BMI

Just like many people do not understand why they should keep a healthy weight, many can actually do not know if they are overweight, or how much. Anyone who has watched the biggest loser, or any other weight loss show, I know I know how to "on top of the" weight ", in many ways. The easiest and most common way to the mass of the body, however, remains on the Index (BMI). BMI chart is used to determine the estimated height and weight using the body mass. Cross references, the data in the chart will give you a number that is a BMI-classification. These numbers are classified as follows:

18.5 Underweight below

Typical 24.9 18.5

26-29.9 Overweight

30-34, 9 Obese (class I)

35-39.9 Severely obese (class II)

40 plus massively (or Super) for obese (category III)

The chart is not complete without taking account of the man or woman, or a skeletal frame and musculature differences. For example, the 6 ' 4 "big boned, Samoan, who plays Rugby professionally might weigh much, but very muscular and fit. His BMI levels are still high. BMI table appearance, that of 76 inches, and weighing over 250 lbs to give our obese BMI over 30 of Samoa .... His real fat and muscle ratio, however, is very low. He has all the muscle. This does not apply to most readers, however! Us dismisses my BMI is usually an approximation. BMI, however, is considered a fairly reliable at baseline to see if you need to pay more attention to the weight (and health), or not.

For those who find even the BMI is too complex, another good rule of thumb is that you're overweight, if weighed 20 pounds more than the weight, in the tables suggests is the ideal; obese if overweight, 50 pounds and the seriously obese if you are 80 pounds Overweight.

Suppose you are now convinced you might need to be taken of the weight and health, and more? The next step would be, well, learn to start a lifestyle-L.E.A.N.-Living of educated about nutrition on the go! The business traveler, you have a unique way of life and you need a set of unique solutions. You should investigate and try a different way, it may be proactive, and health. I believe that this understanding about the basics of feeding begins.
