The Healthy Weight should be accurate and unique to everyone. Here in we introduce some easy to follow steps to find out if you are at a healthy weight. For most people, these are good clues to whether or not they are at the right track.
Is your weight healthy?
A healthy weight is one that is right for your body type and height and one common measurement is your body mass index (BMI). BMI is only one measure of your health. A person who is not at a "normal" weight according to BMI charts may be healthy if he or she has healthy eating habits and exercises regularly. People who are thin but don't exercise or eat nutritious foods aren't necessarily healthy just because they are thin. Read more
Basal Metabolic Rate
BMR factors in your height, weight, gender, activity level and age to approximate the number of calories you burn while at rest; you can also use it to estimate how many calories to cut from your diet each day to achieve your weight-loss goal. Read more
Measuring your waist can help you find out how much fat you have stored around your belly. People who are "apple-shaped" and store fat around their belly are more likely to develop weight-related diseases than people who are "pear-shaped" and store most of their fat around their hips. Diseases that are related to weight include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Measure your waist size with a tape measure. The tape should fit snugly but not press into your skin. Read more
Another measurement is the Resting heart rate. Put two fingers over your pulse, at the wrist or neck, and count the number of beats in one minute. Between 60 and 100 beats is normal. A lower resting heart rate generally implies better physical health; a less active lifestyle can lead to a higher rate because the heart has to work harder.
