When is Weight Loss necessary?

Weight loss may be necessary when the body mass index, or BMI, is higher than it should be. BMI is a measure of body fat content based on her height and weight. Although this measure isn’t perfect, it is a good indication of whether a person is at a healthy weight. A person with a BMI between 18.5 and 25 has a normal weight. People with a BMI over 25 are considered overweight, while a BMI over 30 is categorized as obese. The higher the BMI, the more serious the condition is.
