    hello

    After converting your weight from stones to pounds (1 stone = 14 pounds), your body mass index is 18.46, which may be slightly underweight unless you round up since a BMI must be at least 18.5 to be considered healthy depending on body type, etc. However, other sources will say that a BMI below 19.1 should be considered underweight even for females. (For males, a healthy BMI range starts higher.)

    My mother is a dietitian, and the figure she uses for an acceptable BMI range is 19.1-25.8 for females and 20.7-26.4 for males.

    The BMI equation using pounds is:

    (pounds * 705) / (height in inches squared)

    In your case, your BMI = 18.46

    hello

    BTW:

    As a point of reference, a normal BMI is between 19 and 23, most "centrefold" models have a BMI of 18, and most fashion models come in at 17. An anorectic BMI is usually defined as being below 17.5.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anorexia_nervosa
    For adults (>20 years of age) a BMI <18.5 is considered underweight and a BMI <17.5 is diagnostic for AN [anorexia nervosa].
    Nutrition Intervention in the Treatment of Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified
    A BMI under 17.5 meets the American Psychiatric Association's weight criteria for anorexia nervosa (the disease also has psychological components). Such an unattractive definition may help normal women feel better about their bodies and stop them from yearning to look like Julia Roberts (BMI 17.3) or Kate Moss (16.8).

    Where do you rank when it comes to body mass index? (1998)
