More on Body Mass Index (BMI)

 

Body mass index (BMI) is one method to estimate the total amount of body fat. The calucation devides weight (in kilograms) by height (in metres) and squared (m2). The are exceptions to the calucaltion as it overestimates the body fat for certain groups including professional atheltes, body builders and pregnant women.

BMI calculations can also underestimate total body fat for the elderly and people with a physical disability who may have muscle wastage.
