Want to know what a "healthy" weight for your height is? Well, let's agree on a definition of "healthy" first!
Extra pounds translate into health risks, so after a certain point, those extra pounds stop adding to your character and start adding risk of disease and death.
Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of excess body fat, and it gives a better indication of health risks than body weight alone does.
BMI is therefore used to define "healthy" or "normal" weight.
At what weight would your BMI be less than 25?
Try my handy Reverse BMI Calculator! Enter your height, then try 24 for a healthy BMI. Or maybe, if your BMI is above 30, it'd help your goal-setting to see what weight would bring you down to a BMI of 29.
