Is there an “ideal weight” for each of us? Not really, Doctor Jimmy Mohammed replied on Tuesday Without an appointment. According to the Doctor of Europe 1, as long as your BMI (body mass index) does not mean that you are overweight or obese, there is no need to worry about the correct weight. Because obesity is not a defect or a virtue, it is a disease for which he remembers.
“I don’t like ideal weight very much. Obesity, on the other hand, is neither a defect nor a quality. It is a disease. It is associated with many pathologies such as heart disease, diabetes, some cancers.” It should be understood that when a doctor talks to you about your weight, it is not to tarnish you but on the contrary to protect your health.
BMI is an objective criterion for defining obesity
Obesity is simply defined by BMI. To calculate this, divide your weight by your height. No math is required – online tools will calculate it for you. Results greater than 25 are synonymous with overweight, numbers over 30 are synonymous with obesity. It is not an ideal definition, but it has the virtue of being objective. Because the image the mirror sends back to us is often false, either additionally or by default.
But BMI is not the only criterion. For example, you may have a moderate weight but with a large belly. Waist line is a reflection of visceral fat, which is stored on the organs. This sometimes leads to deformity. It is not an insult to say that having a big belly is not good for you, it is a fact. So do not hesitate to consult a doctor. “
