Why Calculate Your BMI?
Your BMI (Body Mass Index) can help you find a healthy target weight range. BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight.
BMI has several limitations: it's not accurate for pregnant women, people under 5 feet tall, and people with very muscular builds. It also does not account for age.
Please remember that your BMI is just a guideline to help decide your target weight. Talk to a doctor or other health professional about any concerns you have regarding your weight, weight loss, or changes to your diet and exercise regimen.
