Am I Overweight For My Height
When a child progresses from childhood to adolescence, he/she undergoes a lot of physical changes. These physical changes can be attributed to puberty, which causes a spike in the level of sex hormones. During this phase, it is normal for the child to experience sudden increase in height or weight. Often, these drastic and abrupt spurts in weight or height due to puberty leave the person feeling apprehensive about their own body. While weight and height gain is normal during puberty, two people of same age and height might not have the same weight.
Further, feeling fat or considerably thin is not limited to adolescents. Anyone, at any point in their lives, may begin to question their body weight. Different lifestyles and eating habit affect people differently, and so often, the question that arises in the minds of many people is am I overweight for my height? So how do you know if you’re overweight? The only right way to know whether or not you are overweight is by measuring your body mass index, or BMI.
