Ideal height and BMI for 84 kg adults

Adult women and men weighing 84 kg who are between 184.0cm and 213.0cm tall are considered to be of a healthy weight as measured by Body Mass Index (BMI)2. If you are 84 kg and shorter than 184.0 cm you are overweight for your height.

Adults weighing 84 kg may have varying Body Mass Index values depending on their height. To assess whether 84kg is considered a healthy weight, it's crucial to consider BMI, which is calculated based on the individual's height and weight.

BMI and Health

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a useful tool to determine if your weight is appropriate for your height. Here's how BMI is classified:

  • BMI below 18.5: Underweight
  • BMI 18.5 to 24.9: Healthy Weight
  • BMI 25 to 29.9: Overweight
  • BMI 30 and above: Obese

Consult table below to determine the specific body mass index and body size health for your height.

Table Information

The table provides data on various heights and corresponding BMIs for adults weighing 84kg. The "Health" column denotes the BMI category for each height. It's important to note that BMI categories are general guidelines, and individual health assessments should consider factors such as muscle mass, bone density, and overall lifestyle.

Interpreting the Results

  • If your BMI falls below 18.5, you may be considered underweight, which could indicate potential health risks.
  • A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered a healthy weight range, suggesting that your weight is appropriate for your height.
  • BMIs between 25 and 29.9 indicate that an individual is in the overweight category. It's essential to monitor your weight and consider adopting healthier lifestyle habits.
  • BMIs of 30 and above are classified as obese, indicating a higher risk of health issues. In this case, it's advisable to seek professional health guidance to address potential concerns.

Determining your BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a numeric value derived from an individual's weight and height. It is widely used to assess whether a person's weight is within a healthy range relative to their height. The formula for calculating BMI is weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of height (in meters). Once the BMI is calculated, it falls into different categories that indicate the individual's weight status. A BMI below 18.5 is considered underweight, while a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 falls within the healthy weight range. BMIs between 25 and 29.9 are classified as overweight, and values of 30 or higher indicate obesity. It's important to understand that while BMI provides a useful general assessment of weight, it does not account for other factors such as muscle mass and body composition. For a more comprehensive evaluation of health, it is advisable to consider additional factors alongside BMI.

Importance of Healthy Weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial for overall well-being and reducing the risk of various chronic health conditions. Carrying excess weight can strain the cardiovascular system, increase the likelihood of developing conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, and negatively impact joint health. On the other hand, being underweight may result in nutrient deficiencies and weaken the immune system. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise can significantly improve overall health and quality of life. It's essential to approach weight management with a focus on sustainable lifestyle changes rather than quick-fix solutions. Consulting a healthcare professional or registered dietitian can provide personalized guidance to help you achieve your health and weight goals safely and effectively.

Consult a Healthcare Professional

If you have concerns about your weight or BMI, it's essential to seek guidance from a healthcare professional. A qualified medical provider can conduct a comprehensive health assessment, taking into account factors beyond BMI, such as medical history, family history, lifestyle habits, and existing health conditions. They can offer personalized advice tailored to your unique health needs. Additionally, healthcare professionals can assist in setting realistic weight management goals and creating a customized plan that encompasses nutrition, physical activity, and overall wellness. Regular check-ups with a healthcare provider can also help monitor progress and make adjustments to your plan as needed. Remember, health is a journey, and seeking professional support can provide the necessary tools for long-term success in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.


In conclusion, being aware of your BMI and its relationship to your weight and height can provide valuable insights into your overall health. Whether you fall into the underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese category, remember that BMI is a tool and not an exhaustive health assessment. Emphasize overall well-being by adopting healthy lifestyle choices, including a balanced diet and regular physical activity.
