    By Health Blog on July 23, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    A simple way to know if the weight is within normal levels is to find the BMI for short or BMI. To find the VMI divide our body weight (in kilograms) by height us (in meters) squared. For example:

    if the weight of an adult male is 75 kg and height 1.80 meters, the BMI is 75 / 1802 = 23.14.

    The burden on our index BMI assessed as follows:

    BMI Assessment

    Weight less than 20 less than normal
    20 to 25 Normal
    25 to 30 overweight
    30 to 40 obese
    Over 40 Overly obese

    To have meaningful indications of the scale should be weighed every five days and preferably at the same time of day. As mentioned above the daily weighing may lead to wrong conclusions.

    How to stabilize our body weight ?

    The best way to maintain stable body weight is to us a balance between action hiring with food and energy consumed by the various physical activities. When you spend periods of intense physical activity is logical that we need more calories, and when we follow a sedentary life should be reduced accordingly and the action taken by the food.

    An important factor other than the correct calorie intake is to be a proper balance in nutrients. The foods we consume should contain all three types of nutrients ie carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, while it should be rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements. We should mention here that the vitamins minerals and trace elements do not contain energy, but it is essential to the body, and without them can not be carried out many vital functions of the body.
