Weight issue should be approached with the exact calculations. Definitely, you should have a goal – how many pounds or inches you should lose. Inadequate assessment of weight leads woman to starvation, holding various diets, regular visits to the gym and other drastic measures. But this method is not always justified. Sometimes diets do not contribute anything.
This fad can lead to exhaustion and the occurrence of various diseases. And, you just have to balance your diet and reduce your consumption of fatty foods. But there are other simple methods.
There are several ways to calculate these indicators.
The easiest – the crook of the stomach
If the crook on your stomach is more than 3-4 centimeters, it is an alarm that it’s time to take care of yourself. In men, this figure should be less than 1-2 cm.
Another method, which is widely used, it is the Brok formula.
Here are taken into account: height, weight and age. Age, because over the years people almost always gain weight. Here you cannot fight against nature.
The easiest method (if you have not yet attained the age of forty):
From your height subtract 110 and you get your ideal weight.
If you have more than forty years, from subtract 100.
There is another option: if your height does not exceed 165 cm, subtract 100. If your height is 165-175 cm, then subtract 105. And if it is more than 176 cm, subtract 110.
Here is one of the most accurate methods for the definition of body weight. We count the number of pounds of appropriate square meter.
First stage: measure the height and the weight
Then the weight should be divided by height squared, and we can judge about the condition from the estimated coefficients.
If the value falls in the range from 18.5 to 24 – this is the norm.
And in this case do not change anything on you.
If the value is less than 18.5 – you should try to gain weight, and if it is more – choose a way to lose weight.
