Hello doctor. I have a weight related problem. For your information I’m a 23-year-old woman with a 155cm tb and a 46kg bb. If it only refers to weight and height maybe I can be said to be normal. But there is a problem where the lower body tends to be fat, while the upper part of my body is very thin. I was confused, should I try to gain weight so that my upper body part is fuller, or should I diet to reduce fat in the lower body? During this time I was afraid to gain weight because if I gained weight, the body part that is fuller is the lower body, while the upper body is very difficult to become fuller. Please advise. Thank you

Hi Ucili .. Thank you for the question.


A healthy body and a balanced body weight are every human's dream. To find out whether your current weight is ideal or not, one way that can be used is to calculate body mass index (BMI). BMI is calculated by dividing body weight (in kilograms) by height (in meters) squared. If we calculate your BMI with a body weight of 46 kg and a height of 155 cm, you will get the number 19,146 which is still included in the normal value. The interpretation of BMI for Asians is:

BMI <18.5 - body weight below normal
BMI 18,5-22,9 - Normal
BMI 23-24.9 - excess body weight
BMI> 25 - obesity

If you feel that your lower body is bigger than your upper body then your body type can be a pear type where the distribution of fat accumulates more in the lower area, especially the hips, buttocks, and thighs. While the body type of apples in women, upper body parts such as breasts, waist, and abdomen. Therefore for your condition, it is better for you to maintain a balanced diet, eat healthy foods, and do regular exercise such as cycling and aerobics. Aerobic exercise and cycling are good for burning fat in the thighs and buttocks. Do not forget you also meet your daily water needs, eat vegetables and fruit, adequate rest, and if you want to consult about your weight and nutrition, then you should consult a nutritionist.
