Health experts rely on what’s known as the body mass index (BMI) to find out if someone is in the ideal weight range or is overweight, but some researchers say this criterion isn’t always accurate.

According to the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the body mass index, or what is known as “BMI”, is calculated by dividing the weight by the square of the height in meters (kg / meter 2).

This method was invented in the early nineteenth century, by the Belgian mathematician, Lambert Adolphe Jacques Catlett.

And this calculation still exists to this day, by adopting the components of height and weight in order to estimate the extent to which weight takes into account health requirements.

Experts believe that this indicator overlooks many aspects when people are judged to be healthy or otherwise, because it does not take into account things such as genetic and genetic factors, lifestyle, sex and muscle mass.

The researchers stress the importance of taking muscle mass into account, because the weight of a person may already be high, but the increase is due to the presence of important muscle mass to him, and not from the large amount of fat, and therefore, it cannot be said that he is in a critical situation.

According to this vision, what is required is to examine the proportions of fat and muscle, and not just dividing the total weight by the height.

And according to what the “Insider” website reported, earlier, from the researcher specializing in weight loss, Chris Schaaf, that the top experts themselves do not understand obesity in a more accurate and correct way, because the matter differs between millions of people.

Experts recommend paying attention to important factors before judging someone that he is at a healthy weight or that he is really called to worry and take action to protect himself.

One of the most important tips is to pay attention to the waist circumference, because its wideness means a lot of fat in this area of ​​the body, even if the total weight is normal.

In the same vein, experts say that if you are an overweight person, but you are keen to exercise regularly, you enjoy better health than a skinny person who does not engage in any physical activity.
