What is BMI?
BMI stands for body mass index and is a broadly used measure for calculating whether you are the correct weight for your height. BMI is generally universally accepted to be a good starting point for measuring weight, however it does not take into account muscle mass and other weight factors such as age or gender.
BMI result is often used alongside other measures of health such as taking body measurements, ie. waist circumference to give a more detailed picture of health and also identify other risk factors associated with being under or overweight.
