Find Your BMI (Body Mass Index):

To find out if your weight is healthy, you need to figure out your body-mass index, a measure that helps to tell how much fat you have on your frame. Before you begin any journey, you need to decide where you are and where you want to go. Do you need to lose just a few pounds, are you seriously overweight, or are you underweight?

To determine your BMI (see Body-Mass Index Chart): your weight in pounds times 704.5, divided by your height in inches, divided again by your height in inches. The difference between your current weight and the amount you'd need to weigh to have a "desirable" BMI is the amount you need to lose or gain.

Yourn Body Mass Index:

According to the Panel on Energy, Obesity, and Body Weight Standards published by American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, your category is:

Remember, this is just a general statistic, so it isn't a perfect guide for everyone. If you have a lot of muscle (say you trained previously but then fell off the wagon), you might register a more dire number than you should.

BODY-MASS INDEX*
Underweight: below 18.5
Desirable Weight: 18.5-24.9
Overweight: 25.0-29.9
Obese: 30.0-34.9
Morbidly Obese: over 40

ACTIVITY FACTOR
Sit on your butt all day: 1.25-1.40
Light activity: 1.50-1.70
Vigorous exercise for an hour 4-5 times a week: 1.65-1.80
Construction worker, carpenter, serious athlete: 2.30-2.45


The following is how long it will take to lose 10 pounds by burning some of the calories through exercise and cutting the rest out of your diet. (Keep in mind, though, that everyone's body is different, so you may find yourself losing weight more quickly or more slowly than you expected.)

Burn 500 calories / cut 500 calories a day = 5 weeks
Burn 500 calories / cut 250 calories a day = 7 weeks
Burn 250 calories / cut 250 calories a day = 10 weeks
Burn 100 calories / cut 100 calories a day = 25 weeks
