Am I Fat?

The world today is concerned with health. With obesity rates soaring, it is only logical for you to be asking, "Am I fat?". What constitutes fat today will depend on several calculations. You must take your total weight, know you height and then also something very important is your waist size. Bob Greene told Oprah to throw out the scale and eat healthy; no truer words can be spoken.

Am I overweight

Why should you be concerned to see if you are overweight? Heart disease is the leading killer worldwide and the figures are growing. People were not so concerned with health years ago, but now it seems that fast food, unhealthy Tran's fats and a world filled with diet, everything has made it time to ask yourself, "Am I fat?" Concerned parents have a right to ask their children "Are you fat?". Obesity runs high in children and the time to be health conscious is now. Am I fat quiz The "Am I fat quiz" is a fat test to show you how much you should weigh. It is no more than a gimmick. What they ask is the same questions you could answer quickly on a BMI (body mass index) calculator. It will answer some basic questions you may have: - Am I overweight?
- Am I too skinny?
- Am I underweight?

How to calculate BMI

There are thousands of BMI calculators on the Web and you can go there and calculate your BMI quickly and efficiently. There are also calculators to tell you how much weight is ideal for your height. The easiest way to measure BMI is by using this simple calculation: Take your weight times 700. Then divide that figure by your height in inches and then take that figure and divide again by your height in inches. Now, you know your perfect BMI. You are underweight if you have less than 18.5 BMI and overweight if your BMI is over 25.

Waist measurements

Dr. Mehmet C. Oz made the world aware that waist size matters more than how much you weigh. He stated that an overweight person with too large of a waist was the same as carrying around a cancer potential. To get your accurate waist size, you should measure how tall you are and cut that figure in half. Women's ideal waist size is 32.5 inches and for men it is 35 inches. How healthy am I True health cannot be measured by a BMI calculator, waist measurement and a fat quiz. Perfect health is established by blood tests and laboratory analysis. If you want to know how healthy you are, then visit a doctor and have a full exam.
