What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?
Body Mass Index (BMI) compares your weight to your height. Your BMI can indicate if you are underweight, normal, overweight or obese, and it can also suggest your risk for chronic disease. It is a handy guide to the healthy weight range for your height.
Note: According to the National Health and Medical Research Council, a BMI of 20-25 is considered healthy for most adults. However, BMI can be an inaccurate measure of healthy weight for pregnant women, children, older people, athletes or very muscular people
