Losing a lot of weight in a short span of time can be hazardous. For a healthy regime, make sure you do not lose more than 1 or 2 lbs per week. A lot of help is available around, when it comes to knowing the optimum weight which an individual should maintain.


One such scale is the BMI or body mass index which uses height as a factor to correlate the weight. A person is healthy if the BMI is lower than 25. A person with a BMI close to 30 is regarded as over-weight and beyond 30; he or she is considered as obese. Consult a physician to know your number, so that you can aim for a healthy amount of weight loss.
