Calculate your personal ideal weight
The pressure of a society that equates slim with beautiful and successful is the driving force for many who desperately want to lose weight. Do not allow yourself to be led into temptation! What really counts is your ideal weight - within sensible limits, of course.
Nutrition experts now use the BMI (body mass index) to determine whether a person is overweight or underweight. In contrast to earlier formulas, this method does not work to the disadvantage of short people. For women, the BMI should be between 19 and 24; for men, between 20 and 25. However, very muscular people and the elderly may weigh a little more.
