BMI = your weight: (height * height)

Example # 1

  • Height – 160, weight – 55, age – 34
  • BMI = 55: (160 * 160) = 0.002148
  • Round off the number, leaving only the first 4 digits after the zeros. It turns out that BMI = 21.48
  • 21.48 – falls between 20-25, following the table. This means that the body mass index is normal, there is no threat to health.

Example No. 2

  • Height – 178, weight – 79, age – 22
  • BMI = 85: (178 * 178) = 0.00268274
  • Round off the number, leaving the first 4 digits after zero. Therefore, BMI = 26.82
  • 26.82 – the last stage before obesity, urgent action is needed, high health risk

Example No. 3

  • Height – 182, weight – 98, age – 44
  • BMI = 98: (172 * 172) = 0.0033125

Overweight and obesity: causes

Psychological

A person is depressed, or going through difficult stressful stages in life, trying to seize all the problems. Psychologists identify such a disorder as binge eating disorder. Such problems are treated only at an appointment with a psychotherapist, with the participation of special drugs.

Incorrect writing habits

Often, in obese people, relatives are about the same mass. This is due to the wrong eating habits in the family from the series “if you drink tea, then always with bagels and pies.” When a person grows up in such a culture, he transfers it to adulthood, subsequently suffering from excess weight.

Wrong way of life
