BMI, an index validated by the WHO
it is calculated by dividing the weight by the size squared. Through studies, various steps have been established to identify areas at risk, including cardiovascular disease.
Example for an adult man, weight: 98 Kg, height: 1,66 meters:
98 Kg / (166 cm x 166 cm) = 35.6
A BMI between 18.5 to 25 corresponds to a normal weight, the more the body size increases, the more the BMI increases.
A BMI greater than 30 is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
If your BMI is below 18.5, you are skinny, from a medical point of view. It may be necessary for you to get fat: to do this, you can make an appointment for a consultation with a dietician, who will give you the good advice to achieve your goal.
