In this article, we are going to discuss “What is the Jennie diet?”. I will also discuss BMI and the risks of overweight and obese categories. 

What is the Jennie diet?

The Jennie diet is a diet adapted by the celebrity Jennie. Jennie Kim, known as Jinnie is a famous singer and model, part of the biggest K-pop group “Blackpink”. 

Jennie’s BMI (body mass index) falls within the normal range of 18.8 kg / m2. To be healthy you must have a BMI above 18.5 kg/ m2. She weighs 50 kilograms and is 163 cm tall.

She has the healthiest weight among her other bandmates Jisoo, Rose, and Lisa. they range from slight underweight to mid-level underweight.

Jennie has 3 meals a day. These meals are breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the usual three meals we have. She also does not have snacks usually between these meals. 

Jennie chooses food that is not salty. For breakfast, she has an alight snack before her workout which is mostly fruit. For lunch, she would go for an avocado salad, and for dinner porridge and detox juice. As for cheat meals she rarely has them, but sometimes she eats burgers and pizzas when she travels.

Her diet consists of fresh juice whether it is fruit juice or green juice. The juice provides vitamins like vitamin C. Fruit juices provide simple sugar that gives a boost of energy. Green juice is healthier than fruit juice. It packs Vitamin A and vitamin B12.

Jinnie drinks a lot of water. She also does a lot of various workout routines. She does dance practice daily, flying yoga, a particular kind of yoga, and pilates.

What is BMI?

BMI is an acronym for body mass index. It is the measure of the person’s body weight in kilograms divided by the square meter of the person’s height in meters.BMI is used as a screening tool to determine if the person is underweight, overweight, or within the normal range.


A BMI below 18.5 kg /m2 makes the person underweight. Underweight meaning they need to gain essential weight for their body to work appropriately. Underweight people would suffer from many health conditions including osteoporosis making bones brittle and more likely to break.

Not getting enough nutrients would weaken your teeth, hair, and skin. Making hair thin, hair loss, poor teeth, and dry skin.

If you are not getting the essential nutrients, your immune system would be compromised. A weak immune system would lead to an increase in inflammation and sickness. A thin person is not getting their appropriate nutrient intake which makes them tired and fatigued. 

Anemia might develop if the person is not taking enough iron from their diet. Iron is needed for the production of red blood cells, and with anemia, more fatigue may arise. In addition to that, dizziness and headaches from the limited number of red blood cells carrying oxygen throughout the body.

Being underweight puts women at risk for missed periods and infertility because of the absence of menstruation. Pregnant underweight women would deliver premature and underweight babies. They would be more fragile and more susceptible to getting sick

Women in their developmental stage as they grow, they need essential nutrients to reach their full growth abilities. However, underweight girls would have impaired growth.

Normal weight 

A BMI between 18.5 – 24.9 kg / m2 falls within the normal weight. Having this BMI range is ideal and healthy. Jennie from Blackpink belongs to this group. It is what recommended weight should be, as it poses no risks for diseases or medical conditions.


A BMI range between 25.0 – 29.9 kg /m2 puts the person in the overweight category. The extra weight puts the person at risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis gallbladder diseases, cancers, kidney diseases, and pregnancy problems.


A BMI of 30.0 kg/ m2 and above falls under the obese category. Obese people are at even greater risk than overweight people. Some of which include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Joint problems caused by the extra weight
  • Trouble breathing, including sleep apnea, in which you briefly stop breathing while you’re asleep
  • Gallstones
