Are You at a Healthy Weight?

AARP.com has a great article on determining if you are at a healthy weight and tips on how to get there if you’re not. BMI stands for body mass index and it is a calculation that uses your height and weight to guess how much body fat you have.

Another formula that AARP.com shares:

For women: add “100 pounds of body weight for the first five feet of height plus 5 pounds for each additional inch.”

For Men: “add 106 pounds of body weight for the first five feet of height plus six pounds for each additional inch.”

Some tips to maintain a healthy diet are eat less red meat, eat more fish, limit eating up to four eggs a week, eat fiber, and cut back on fried food.
