What is the appropriate weight for a person

    The body mass index (BMI) is usually used to determine whether a person's weight is appropriate. The formula for calculating BMI is the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters.


    According to World Health Organization standards, the BMI range of normal adults is between 18.5 and 23.9. A BMI less than 18.5 indicates underweight, below standard weight, and also reflects insufficient nutrition, requiring increased nutrient intake. BMI greater than or equal to 24 indicates overweight, which is higher than the standard weight. BMI greater than or equal to 28 indicates obesity and unhealthy weight.

    Therefore, one can deduce their standard weight based on their height and normal BMI range. Taking a man with a height of 175cm as an example, through the calculation formula, the standard weight is approximately 56.7kg to 73.5kg. If the weight exceeds 85.75kg, it is considered obese.

    Please note that the BMI index is not applicable to long-term illness, elderly people, and children, who require a specific nutritional assessment by a doctor. In addition, daily diet should avoid consuming high calorie and high fat foods, and consume more protein and fiber rich foods, such as fresh vegetables and fruits, chicken, fish, etc. At the same time, physical exercise should be used to increase muscle content, improve basal metabolic levels, promote metabolism, and help with better weight loss or gain.
