Are Six Pack Abs Sign of Good Health?
Yes you have six pack, killer abs. Bur are you sure you are healthy? Of course you can measure a persons health on their outside appearance, but there are other ways of measuring how healthy you are aside from basing it on the midsection.
Weight of course, can tell is a person is healthy or not. But weight is also not the reliable. Doctors use body mass index or BMI to measure or judge a persons size against weight. BMI is a calculation of kilograms/meter squared. A BMI between 18 to 25 is healthy. But someone who is very fit and muscular could have a BMI greater than 25. This would classify them ass overweight.
BMI is a useless indicator for people under 16. Instead of using the weigh and height ratio, what should be factored is the persons age and potential for growth. An example would be if a child was gaining weight to quickly for their age or it they were not gaining enough weight or growing.
Body shape can also be an indicator of good health
