The Slim Guide

Another guide by me and Rebecca.
Rebecca is trying to lose weight, although everyone tells her she doesn't need to, she wants to. It's all for her own self-esteem.

Inspired by her, I'm trying to live a healthier life.
so here's our plans to help guide anyone who needs it :)

1. First things are first.

Although I don't believe that BMI is correct. I still use it as a guide line. To start, I suggest calculating it. 

To do that you need to: Measure your height and weigh yourself. Then divide your weight by your height. 

Body Mass Index is supposed to translate ones health in proper dimensions.

Once you know your BMI, you need to know whether you're underweight, ideal or overweight. (This is the scary part I guess)

Classification BMI(kg/m2)   Principal cut-off points Additional cut-off points Underweight <18.50 <18.50      Severe thinness <16.00 <16.00      Moderate thinness 16.00 - 16.99 16.00 - 16.99      Mild thinness 17.00 - 18.49 17.00 - 18.49 Normal range 18.50 - 24.99 18.50 - 22.99 23.00 - 24.99 Overweight ≥25.00 ≥25.00      Pre-obese 25.00 - 29.99 25.00 - 27.49 27.50 - 29.99       Obese ≥30.00 ≥30.00           Obese class I 30.00 - 34.99 30.00 - 32.49 32.50 - 34.99           Obese class II 35.00 - 39.99 35.00 - 37.49 37.50 - 39.99           Obese class III ≥40.00

≥40.00   

 Now that's done, you now know where you need to be.
