Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
BMI is the body mass index that is calculated when knowing your height and weight and depending on the results one is classified to degrees (underweight,normal,overweight,obese)

So if your weight is 60 kg and your height is 165 cm ,then your body mass index BMI depending of your weight and height is 22.04 and this is considered in the normal range .

These are the references of BMI
Underweight = <18.5
Normal weight = 18.5–24.9 >>>>>>HERE IS YOUR LEVEL
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

So you are not considered overweight ,to lose weight ,it might be that you want to reshape your body rather than to lose weight .

To do so ,you must exercise more and you can focus on the bottocks area if you want to lose fat there more ,do cardiovascular exercises more ,if you want to stay in your normal weight and increase your exercise you need to increase your caloric intake proteins mainly ,if you wish to lose then don't increase your food intake and stay exercising

-focus on fruits, veggies, egg whites, soy products, skinless breasts, fish, shellfish, nonfat dairy foods, and 95% lean meat.
