Psychiatrist 's  Response
UNDERSTAND WHAT IS THE BASIC PRINCIPLE OF WEIGHT MEASUREMENT BASED ON BODY MASS INDEX,
B.M.I IS RATIO OF YOUR WEIGHT IN KG AND SQUARE OF YOUR HEIGHT IN METER.
B.M.I=WT(KG)/(HEIGHT IN M)2
SO YOUR B.M.I COMES AS 54/(1.7)2=18.39
B.M.I BETWEEN 18-21 IS NORMAL.
SO,RELAX YOUR WEIGHT FALL IN NORMAL RANGE,YOU CAN CONTINUE YOUR DIET CHART WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS.
