The body mass index (BMI) is a measurement of a person’s weight compared to their height. It is used to classify people based on their body fat percentage. A high BMI indicates a person with a high body fat percentage and is thus, indicative of an overweight person. A low BMI indicates a person with a low body fat percentage and is thus, indicative of a person who is likely to be of a healthy weight. Calculating your BMI is rather simple – all you need are some measurements of your height and weight. The table below shows you how to do this quickly and accurately.

## Introduction

As discussed in the last blog post, losing weight is easier said than done. There are numerous complexities that come with trying to lose weight. One of the biggest issues is knowing how much weight to lose. This is often called ‘the obesity paradox’. The paradox is that even though most people consider themselves to be overweight, those people who are actually overweight are less likely to die from obesity-related illnesses than people of a healthy weight. This leads many people to underestimate their true weight, resulting in them trying to lose a little too much weight. The result is that they put themselves at risk of various diet-related health complications. This is why it is recommended that you take it easy at first when trying to lose weight. You should not stress about making huge changes to your diet and exercise regime all at once.

The BMI is a measurement of weight relative to height and is a common tool used by nutritionists, doctors and others who work with people’s health. It is a simple, straightforward way of measuring someone’s weight status. It is also a helpful tool for people who are trying to lose weight as it can help determine how much weight to lose. You will need to have both your weight and height measured by a professional to calculate your BMI. The benefits of knowing your BMI are that you can then work out what changes you need to make to your diet and exercise regime to achieve a healthy weight. The table below explains how to calculate your BMI:

You should not stress about making huge changes to your diet and exercise regime all at once.

One of the important factors in determining your ideal weight is your height. To measure your height accurately, you need to be standing in front of a tall whiteboard or a wall and use the following formula:

- Ht (in inches) – Your total height.
- Wt (in pounds) x 1.0 (if you weigh less than 50 lbs)
- Wt x 0.8 (if you weigh between 50 and 99 lbs)
- Wt x 0.6 (if you weigh 100lbs or more)
- Subtract one foot from your total height to get the lower floor measurement.
- Divide the lower floor measurement by two to get the lower ceiling measurement.
- Add one foot to the lower ceiling measurement to get the top floor measurement.
- Add one foot to the top floor measurement to get the total height.

You can use the same measurement whenever you need to measure your height. For example, when standing in front of a mirror, you can measure from the top of your head to the floor or from the floor to the top of your head and use the same measurements. Always use the same measurement because the math will be easier that way.

The advantage of using these measurements is that they are simple and easy to do. Instead of guessing or using a scale that is prone to rounding errors, you can get an accurate measurement using these formulas. Knowing your height is important when calculating how much weight you need to lose as excess pounds put on over time will affect your health adversely. The table below shows you a few important measurements you should keep in mind:
