    Of the perfect figure depends on the aesthetic ideas of each individual. But there is a strict medical index - body mass index: weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in meters) squared. If the resulting number is less than 20 calculations, the weight decreased. From 20 to 25 - the norm. From 25 to 30 - the excess weight, but it only promises aesthetic suffering, a great threat to the health not. But if the body mass index greater than 30, a person will inevitably begin with health problems caused by being overweight.
    Diseases of excess weight

    - What diseases can cause overweight?

    First of all, high blood pressure , which is often accompanied by a high risk of vascular events and sudden death.
    - What is a "vascular accident"?

    Vascular catastrophe - a medical term for heart attacks and strokes.

    Furthermore, obesity can lead to diabetes second type (insulin-dependent diabetes), which in turn leads to vascular kidney damage, loss of vision, and men - erectile dysfunction.

    - A frightening prospect ...

    And that is not all. To the list of diseases you can add atherosclerosis , which again means increased risk of vascular events and sudden death. Also, being overweight increases the risk of cancer: obese people have higher chances of earning a cancer of the colon and rectum (colorectal cancer) and women with overweight additionally at risk of getting cancer of the uterus or breast . The relationship between these diseases and obesity proved scientifically More Read 60 Second Panic Solution

    Vascular catastrophe is usually an abdominal issue. I'm not sure where you get your facts, I just know you are wrong and didn't cite references to back up your claims.

    I agree with jcycle . Weight in and of itself isn't a problem unless it is so gross that you can't walk. On a bike the more weight you carry the harder it is to climb.

    If you are more than the idea weight you should have your blood pressure and cholesterol checked frequently but riding a bike will boost HDL which helps to rid the body of LDL which can clog arteries.

    Another thing is to be alert to the way your body feels. Do not race other people until you have the ability to do so. That means trying to keep up with faster riders.

    To increase your fitness buy a guide to bicycle fitness because everyone but everyone but pros trains incorrectly. In short though you train at a moderate pace most of the time and use things like sprints or climbs to take yourself to your limits WITHOUT EXCEEDING THEM. And you must warm up and cool down. If you push to the top of a stiff climb and stop at the top and sit down you're asking for a heart attack. The same with sprints where you exceed your capacity and then stop to catch your breath.

    As your fitness increases your average speed will climb. That average speed is limited by your inherent capacity.

    It's sort of easy when they're on the extreme side of things. When someone's really fat, then they're likely overweight. But if they're really fit, then you can safely say that they're not.

    Well the BMI can tell you if you're overweight, but it's not the whole story. you also have to take into account your ethnicity, e.g. Asians have a lower BMI threshold for overweight, and also you can have a normal BMI but still be considered at risk for heart disease with central obesity.

    Agree with that, the body mass index will tell you if the person is overweight. This is the weight in kilograms, divided by the square of height meters. There're so many disadvantages of being overweight and it's not really good to our health. That's why we should always aware to BMI.

    I really don't believe in BMI because there's the factor of genetics and unless a person is really grossly overweight or obese or the reverse of that then BMI doesn't apply, there are big boned people who weighs more but are generally fit, if we follow the BMI then they would be classified as overweight, but in reality they're not.
