Health expressed in pounds and centimeters

The health of our body depends on a perfect cohesion of all the organs and is therefore also a question of pounds and centimeters.

A fat belly, for example, influences the way of walking causing loss of agility and thus compromising the perfect functioning of other parts of the body. So what is the ideal weight? There are no standard measures, it is clear that a petite person cannot have the same ideal measurements as a person of the same height with a robust bone structure. Just as the line and the harmony of the forms do not have an equal unit of measure, indifferent to all. Therefore, in calculating the ideal weight and measurements of the various parts of the body, in relation to the height, we must also take into account the bone structure of each.

The following table will tell you what the weight of your body should be in relation to your body size and will help you discover any disproportion of your body.

If, after consulting this table, you have decided to lose a few pounds to allow your figure to reach the right proportions, be careful and do not rush. A slimming diet carried out quickly and violently could sadly lead you to worse results than the ills you want to remedy.


The tissues of the body, losing consistency and elasticity, could be released, the muscles weakened without counting the dangers that the skin runs following a weight loss diet that eliminates fats from the table too drastically. However, the most difficult thing is not to lose weight but to maintain the hard-earned levels.

The lack of perseverance and a serious motivation that supports it is the reason why many slimming treatments fail. Remember that if there were two million people in a city, everyone would be unhappy with their weight. Because various, they would like a few extra pounds, the majority a few or many pounds less, but all would be interested in slimming treatments either because they are fat, or because they have been, or because they are afraid of becoming them. The most frequent question on the subject is: Is there a slimming food? The answer is certainly not!

Every food brought to the mouth in small or large quantities has its value in calories, few or many that are the final and daily sum of all the calories ingested that counts. You can get fat by eating salad and steaks, you can lose weight by eating pasta, it is the sum of the Calories that is worth.

For young people, who do not want to get fat, in a day they should not ingest more than 2000 Calories. To achieve this, for many there is no need for a very strict diet. You can remove excess calories by removing a few foods or decreasing the amount. Sometimes it is enough to give up some more pastries or chocolates, to snack foods and fizzy drinks. Be wary of extraordinary diets that usually lack scientific basis.

As well as those that absolutely forbid a whole category of foods such as carbohydrates. Keep in mind that our body needs about five fundamental elements in nutrition and that no food contains them all at the same time.

Therefore a diet based on a wide variety of foods should be followed. Normally we tend to eliminate cereals, bread, potatoes, rich carbohydrate sources. Remember that carbohydrates are essential even during a weight loss treatment, because they provide the reserve that the liver needs to give the body sufficient energy.
It is not useless to repeat that our good health is also linked to a healthy and complete diet.

Don’t let yourself be taken by the diet craze. In any case it is advisable to rely on the advice of a dietician.

There is a saying that says that the man passes, the first half of his life to ruin his health and the second half to cure himself, proper nutrition is a way to take care of oneself.
