How do we know what our ideal weight is?

This calculator takes into account the relationship between weight and height. According to the value obtained, BMI is divided into several categories as follows:

  • Underweight, with a BMI below 18.5

  • Normal weight when BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9

  • Overweight if the BMI is between 25 and 29.9

  • Obesity degree 1 when the BMI is between 30 and 34.9

  • Obesity degree 2 when the BMI is between 35 and 39.9

  • Obesity degree 3 when the BMI is over 40

Both underweight and overweight pose health risks and can be the cause of various health problems. When you are overweight, the more the BMI increases, the greater the risk of diabetes, certain cancers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and premature death. High-grade obesity degree 3 poses an extremely serious risk. It is important to clarify that obesity is a disease that must be treated to reduce risks and reduce complications.
