A person can maintain his

BMI= weight in kilograms/ height in meters

If your BMI is below 18.5 it means you are

If your BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9 it means you are

If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9 it means you are

If your BMI is 30 and above it means you are

Now there is another term called

Male: BEE = 66.67 + 13.75W + 5H - 6.76A.

Female: BEE = 665.1 + 9.56W +1.85H -4.68A.

Where H= height in centimeters, W= weight in kg, A= age in years.

1. Compute BEE. This gives the number of calories required by a person in the resting state.

2. Multiply BEE by 1.2 to determine number of calories used during daily activity.

3. Subtract 500 from the value calculated from step 2 to determine kilocalorie requirement for weight loss.

4. Add 500 from the value calculated from step 2 to determine kilocalorie requirement for weight gain.

This will help you to maintain your ideal weight.

**ideal body weight**by calculating his**BMI**, i.e. body mass index.**Body mass index**is a number calculated from a person's weight and height.The formula for calculating BMI is as follows:BMI= weight in kilograms/ height in meters

**BMI Weight Status**If your BMI is below 18.5 it means you are

**Underweight**If your BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9 it means you are

**Normal**If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9 it means you are

**Overweight**If your BMI is 30 and above it means you are

**Obese**Now there is another term called

**basal energy expenditure**or**BEE**it is nothing but the amount of energy required to maintain the body's normal metabolic activity like respiration, maintenance of body temperature, etc.Male: BEE = 66.67 + 13.75W + 5H - 6.76A.

Female: BEE = 665.1 + 9.56W +1.85H -4.68A.

Where H= height in centimeters, W= weight in kg, A= age in years.

**Steps to calculate ideal weight**1. Compute BEE. This gives the number of calories required by a person in the resting state.

2. Multiply BEE by 1.2 to determine number of calories used during daily activity.

3. Subtract 500 from the value calculated from step 2 to determine kilocalorie requirement for weight loss.

4. Add 500 from the value calculated from step 2 to determine kilocalorie requirement for weight gain.
