HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR IDEAL WEIGHT?
There are several calculation methods to determine your ideal weight. But only one of these mathematical formulas is recognized and used by the world’s top health authorities. This is the calculation of the Body Mass Index (BMI) :
Body Mass Index = Weight in kg / Size in M squared.
For example, if you weigh 50 kg and measure 1m60: 50 / (1.60 x 1.60) = 19.5.
Once your BMI is calculated, interpret it using the following benchmarks set by the World Health Organization (WHO):
Below 16> Anorexia or undernutrition
Between 16.5 and 18.5> Lackiness
Between 18.5 and 25> Normal body
Between 25 and 30> Overweight
Between 30 and 35> Moderate obesity
Between 35 and 40> High obesity
Greater than 40> Morbid or massive obesity
The result obtained by calculating your BMI allows you to get a first idea of your ideal weight, but this result lacks precision. This method does not take into account determinants such as your morphology, bone structure or age. As a result, the result remains approximate and nuanced.
