Weight Loss

What is BMI?

Body mass index (BMI) is an approximate measure of your best weight for health. It is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared (m2). The BMI model is intended for men and women over the age of 18. A healthy BMI for an adult is between 20 and 25. BMI is a useful indicator of health at the population level, but has some limitations; BMI cannot differentiate between body fat and muscle mass, and also doesn’t consider that your individual level of general health may be more important than being mildly overweight. Your doctor will be able to provide an assessment of your overall health in conjunction with any weight management program.
