What is healthy weight? Weight loss or obesity, or a healthy body mass index (BMI)? Or both?
What are the benefits of losing weight, and what are the risks? Is it time to consider trying some new nutritional approach?
Is there an ultimate need to lose weight? Are we in the middle of a health war that might be happening among us, or could this all simply end up being overhyped? What would it take for us to realize the benefits of our bodies not only as physical endurance, but a sense of self-esteem, pride and confidence? There is a lot more to a healthy body than just losing weight. The best way to see if you’re on track with your journey toward healthier eating and exercise is by taking into account healthy BMI.
Healthy BMI is defined by your general BMI. A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered “healthy,” while a BMI of 25 and below is overweight and a BMI of 24.9 is obesity. Although BMI numbers can vary from person to person, they are typically used as an easy to understand guide when evaluating a patient’s overall health. An annual BMI less than 30.6 is considered underweight, 29 and above — overweight, 30 and above — and over 30.6 and below — obese. If you have a BMI outside of these ranges and you’ve tried several different nutrition approaches, we may discuss your results in greater detail in the next section.
Healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated by dividing your height (cm) by your weight (kg). To give a percentage of your total weight you should divide 100 by your weight to get your BMI. A healthy BMI is between 18–24.9.

How long does it take to lose weight?
It takes a minimum of seven to eight weeks to lose a significant amount of weight. But it is impossible to see any difference in weight loss within that period of time; rather, it changes dramatically through the months of May and June. At the beginning of March, you may see a slight change in your weight; it is possible that your caloric intake may have changed. Throughout April and May, there are no noticeable differences in your weight. In early February, you may notice that your stomach has shifted for the month.
Even though the number of calories per day may be lower than what it would be in September and October, it’s important that you remain calm and persistent. Also, remember to eat foods rich in protein, fiber, vitamins D and E, calcium and potassium. Losing weight is easier if you’re following ketogenic nutrition. These nutrients may help you feel fuller for longer periods of time. Keep this in mind in addition to keeping busy.
