How to calculate your ideal weight?
Wondering if you have a few kilograms in too?Let’s see how to calculate your ideal weight.
Obesity is a difference between the actual weight of the person and the estimated weight ideal.The difference can be several levels as low, medium or high.Different methods exist to calculate your ideal weight.See here two methods: the formula of Lorentz and Body Mass Index (BMI).
- For a man, to calculate your ideal weight should use the following formula: take the height (in inches) that you remove percent (result 1). Then, repeat the height (in centimeters) and remove one hundred fifty (outcome # 2). This result, divide by four to get the result 3. Finally, perform a subtraction result between No. 1 and No. 3 the result. The value obtained corresponds to your ideal weight in kilograms.
- To facilitate understanding, take an example: for someone who is 172 centimeters, the result # 1 of 72 (172 – 100). The result is # 2 of 22 (172 – 150). Finally, the result No. 3 is 5.5 (22 divided by 4). Finally, the ideal weight is 66.5 kg (72 – 5.5).
- For a woman the formula is very similar, the difference is related to the coefficient divisor of two instead of four. Thus, for a woman measuring 165 centimeters, the result # 1 is 65 (165 – 100), the result is # 2 of 15 (165-150) and the result is # 3 7.5 (15 divided by 2). Thus, the ideal weight is 57.5 kg.
The body mass index …
- In addition to calculating ideal weight, this method allows to determine the degree of overweight or obese person. The formula for BMI is calculated as weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in meters) squared. For a person measuring 1 meter 72 and weighing 68 kg, his BMI is 23 (68 divided by 1.72 squared).
- This value must be compared to a table to determine the degree of overweight. If the BMI is less than 18.5, the person is considered lean. For an index between 18.5 and 24.9 weight is considered normal.
- If the index is greater than 25 and less than 29.9 then the person is overweight. Then a value between 30 and 34.5 is the person considered overweight. For an index between 34.6 and 39.9 it is severe obesity. Finally, an index greater than 40, the person is in morbid obesity.
