Ideal Body Weight - A Massive Issue

The ideal body weight, medically speaking, is a range. If you go above or below it, your health could suffer. But most people of the same sex, height, and age, who weigh within the range will have no weight-related health problems. A person with an ideal body weight will have a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9.

Join our online group on BMI and the ideal body weight to ask your questions to experts, share tips about maintaining a healthy weight, and learn more.
