Body Mass Index (BMI)
Your body mass index is based upon your height and weight. A BMI greater than 25 is considered overweight and greater then 30, considered obese.
Note: BMI is a better predictor of disease risk than body weight alone. However, there are certain people who should not use BMI as the basis for estimating body fat content: competitive athletes and body builders, whose BMI is high due to a relatively larger amount of muscle, and women who are pregnant or lactating. Nor is it intended for use in growing children or in frail and sedentary elderly individuals.
