It is recommended that the BMI-Body Mass Index for adults over 20 years of age ranges from 18.5 to 24.9. In this range, one speaks of normal weight and an optimal BMI. The term ideal weight was frequently used. Today, experts tend to advise against this term, as it is more important to rely on your body feeling and to aim for your personal feel-good weight.
