Calculate your body mass index


Control your weight


If you ride uphill, you fight against gravity. Not too weigh too much is the message. Obesity is not just bad for climbing but also bad for your health and can cause high cholesterol and diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, hypertension and osteoarthritis.

Start by calculating your BMI (Body Mass Index). To calculate your BMI you need your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your length in meters.

for example:
You weigh 80 kilograms and are 1.80 meters:
80: (1.8 x 1.8) = 80: 3,24 = 24.7

This is just within the normal weight range.
• 18.5 to 25: healthy BMI: normal, healthy weight
• 25-30: obesity. You are overweight, but obese does not lead to serious health risks yet.
• 30-40: obesity. Increased risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and back pain.

Weight loss goes (or is supposed to happen) gradually. Adjust your diet, exercise and lifestyle.
