Whether you want to lose or gain weight, it’s important to have a set weight goal for you to aim for. 


Once you have reached your targeted weight goal, it’s much easier to maintain your good health. 


But before you set off on your health journey, make sure to consult your local weight loss clinic for advice and help to choose and target your ideal weight.


What is the Body Mass Index


Most people already have a sense of if they need to gain or lose weight, and a common metric used to determine this is your body mass index (BMI) versus what is ideal. 


According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, an 18.5 to 24.9 BMI is the ideal range to be healthy, but how can you calculate your BMI?


Calculate Your Body’s BMI


You’ll need to apply math to calculate your BMI and do metric conversions, too. Your BMI is determined by measuring your height in meters and multiplying it by the same measurement to get the square of your height in meters. 


Then you divide the square of your height by your weight in kilograms to learn your BMI. 


Anything less than 18.5 is considered underweight, while anything more than 24.9 is overweight.


Determine Your Needed Weight Change


You can’t change your height, so you’ll need to change your weight to attain an ideal BMI. You can access BMI charts online that indicate your height and show you the corresponding ideal weight in pounds for someone of your height. 


Create a Sustainable Plan


If you need to lose weight, you might sign up for a weight loss clinic that can help motivate you to lose weight at a sustainable pace, so you stay healthy while improving your BMI. 


Crash dieting, in which people generally starve themselves to rapidly lose weight, usually results in rapid weight loss followed by rapid weight gain. 


It’s better to make meaningful adjustments to your diet and the amount of exercise or physical activity that you do daily to burn more calories and reach an ideal BMI.
