Body Mass Index (BMI) is the most commonly used screening tool to determine how healthy your weight is. It is a calculation based on your height and weight that is used to categorize your weight status. If your BMI is high, you may have excess body fat and be at an increased risk of developing certain diseases. Weight reduction is an important way to reduce your BMI and improve your overall health.
 
BMI is a good indicator of health and weight status for most adults, but has limitations in that it cannot distinguish between lean body mass and fat mass. The elderly, competitive athletes, body builders, and pregnant & lactating women should not be disturbed if their BMI is not within the normal range.
