So how do I know if I am at a healthy weight?
A formula giving us the Body Mass Index or BMI can be used as a guide to see if you are underweight, of normal weight, overweight or obese.
Normal BMI for your age:
You are extremely light for your height. You should go to your doctor for an examination and consultation. This will establish whether your weight represents a problem with your health. A low weight can indicate a psychological problem. Has something changed in your life? Since when have you been eating so little? Are you feeling stressed or depressed? Discuss your problems with your doctor or a specialist, who will help you to resolve your issues.
Congratulations, your weight is normal for your height. Continue to ensure that you have a balanced diet and are doing enough exercise in your day-to-day life.
You are slightly overweight. A change in diet as well as exercise 3-4 times a week for at least 30 minutes can help you to improve your BMI. Your pharmacist or chemist will be happy to advise you.
