Today, most people know more about their PC, than they know about the body that they live in!

This is an approximate measure, because some people, especially the ones who do regular exercise & are otherwise fit, may weigh more due to more of lean body mass. Other way of checking the same is BMI ( Body Mass Index). Which is your body weight divided by the square of your height in meters. E.g if your height is 5’4” & you weigh 56 kgs then your BMI will be:-
 56kgs /1.62 * 1.62 = 21.37
The normal range of BMI is as follows-
For Men- between 18.7 – 23.8
For Women- between 20- 25
In an overweight person the BMI will be higher than normal. In case of an obese person BMI would be over 30.
