Body mass index is calculated according to body weight and height of people. From this, it can be understood how weight and height are related to each other. According to our height, our BMI value tells whether our weight is within the limit. If not, we have to burn extra calories from the body. In such a situation, some people can do it quickly, but some do not get that much success even after many attempts. The most unsuccessful of these are people with short height. Despite sweating for many hours in the gym or even after eating a well-balanced diet, these people are not able to burn their fat at a breakneck pace. We tell you why this happens.

Why is it difficult for people of short to lose weight?

The reason for this is that taller people have more muscle mass and thus their metabolism is better.  If you are tall, your muscles have more flexibility, and then your body burns more calories while resting or sleeping. That is, the more lean muscles, the better metabolism and the more easily calories are burned. However, physical activity plays an important role here. That means less exercise, more weight. Similarly, it is essential to keep the diet right. Try to eat a little less than your hunger, and this will keep you from getting extra calories.
