What is Body Mass Index
BMI (body mass index) is a formula that uses both weight and
height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate
of body fat before beginning any diet program. Due to its ease of measurement and calculation,
the BMI Calculator is the most widely used diagnostic tool to identify weight problems within a population, usually
whether individuals are underweight, overweight or obese.
As you now know, BMI can be used to indicate if you are overweight, obese,
underweight or normal. Here are the facts: A healthy BMI score is between 19 and 24.9. A score below
19 indicates that you may be underweight; a value above 25 indicates that you
may be overweight. Excess body fat is related to serious health conditions as shown in our
Health and Wellness Tools.
Consider the benefits of achieving a healthy weight — a reduced
risk of serious health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes,
increased energy and improved self-esteem. Everyone should know their own
BMI. Once you reach your ideal weight with the Smart for Life Cookie Diet, you
