How do you find out how much you should weigh?
When trying to assess your ideal weight, it is clearly essential to
consider your height. This can be achieved using the Body mass index
BMI = weight (kg) / height (m)2
Ideal BMI = 20 to 24.9
Less than 20 = Underweight
More than 25-30 = Overweight
More than 30 = Clinically Obese
An increasing proportion of our society is now
overweight and carries the health risks associated with obesity.
Being significantly underweight also carries health
risks and requires attention.
