What is BMI?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement of total body fat based upon a person’s weight and height. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but gives a reliable estimate of body fatness for most adults. There are some variables such as sex, age, and muscle build that make BMI results not exact estimates of body fatness for some people.

For example, women may have more body fat than men at the same BMI, older adults may have more body fat than younger adults at the same BMI, and trained athletes or highly muscular individuals may have a high BMI because of increased muscle mass rather than increased body fat.
