The calculation of the body mass index is based on a height of 5 feet 8 inches (173 cm) and a weight of 245 pounds (111.1 kilograms). BMI = 37
Your body mass index (BMI) is calculated as exactly 37.3 kilograms per square meter.
Your weight is at a high level, it can contribute towards health problems. By classification of the WHO, you are "OBESE".
Your body fat mass seems to be rather high. It may have raised your blood pressure and cholesterol levels, or affected the way your body handles blood sugar. Your doctor could tell you whether you are at risk for heart disease, stroke, or diabetes, or not.
At this weight level, you are at risk of gaining more weight. If you manage to maintain your current weight, you have reached your first and most important goal. Next you may want to lose weight: Do this slowly but surely.
The best you can do is eat healthy food and increase your fitness. This will boost your health, whatever the case. If you reach your weight target, all the better.
With a weight loss of 20 pounds kilograms down to a target weight of 225 pounds kilograms, your health would benefit.
By the way, being fat without tobacco is better than being slim due to nicotine. The best advice for smokers is to postpone the weight loss and stop smoking first. To curb a weight gain, the following suggestions may be helpful.
Eat a variety of foods that you like, optimally including five servings of fruit and/or vegetables a day. Avoid eating too sweet, too fat and too much.
Do physical exercise at least for half an hour daily at moderate to vigorous intensity. Walking or cycling may be better for your joints than jogging.
Important to know
This feedback can only be based on the inevitably limited extent of the data that you have entered here. This data has been evaluated by comparing it with the results of the most comprehensive study published so far on the BMI and its associated health risks.
The results and comments above can only give you an estimate that applies to all men at 56 years of age with a body mass index of 37, as a statistical group. They are non-personal. They should never replace medical advice
