how to calculate BMI
Divide your weight (in kg) by your length (in square meters). This is how you can find your BMI.bFor example, if your height is 6 feet, it will be 1.83 square meters and weight is 60 kg, if now we divide the weight of 60 kg by 1.83 meters, then it will be 32.78 BMI
These 3 ways to know health is better than BMI
1. Know Your Vest: Hips Ratio
To go in the easy way, you must first
Boat the widest part of the hips in inches
Then measure the waist in inches, about 2 inches above the navel, then now divide the width of the hips by the width of the waist (the width was measured in inches). Also know that the ideal ratio is 0.95 for men and 0.80 for women.
If your division ratio is higher than this, it is a sign that you have more fat around your belly.
2. Measure Waist Width
If the waist width of women is 35 inches (85cm) than the width of the waist of men 40 inches (101.6cm)
If it is more then it is a sign that there is more fat around your stomach, due to which the risk of diseases is higher. Now you need to reduce fat
you should reduce belly fat
3. Get Body Fat Ratio Checked
It can be tested with a machine, it is best to do body fat analysis with bioelectrical impedance.
can be known
15 to 24%. Body fat of women should be between 24% and this ratio of men should be between 6 – 17%.
BMI has 3 flaws
1. According to the US National Institute of Health Day, BMI refers to a person’s height and weight.
Health itself is considered the mainstay of health, while it can also be wrong while a person’s age, gender, race, body composition, medical history, weight and health condition can also be considered.
2. The BMI formula considers the weight of bones, muscle mass, fat to be equal, assuming a thin person who has more muscle mass and less body fat, will be overweight on the basis of this formula, because the muscle mass is more
3. On which part of the body PAT is deposited on the same basis
But there is a risk, such as if the fat is more near the waist, then the risk of serious diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease is also higher than the fat in the hips and thighs.
What the study on BMI formula says, how accurate it is to know health
Various health organizations of the world have refused to consider BMI useful for testing individual health.
If you also consider yourself healthy with the BMI formula, then Dr. Yoni Friedhoff, Associate Professor of Family Medicine at the University of Ottawa, USA, says that BMI is not useful for checking personal health.
Because it does not reflect the metabolic health of the person, as well as the body composition can be different depending on the height, gender, race of the person, it can also result that the person has more weight and that health.
Rekha Kumar, an associate professor of clinical medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, says that if goals are set based on a person’s physical size, then it can be harmful to the individual BMI about the metabolic health of the individual. I do not tell.
