Body Mass Index (BMI): A True Measure
Physicians are now using Body Mass Index (BMI) rather than simple weight to find your body fat content. The problem is that there is really no ideal body weight. Ideal weight is actually a range of weight. BMI factors your weight with your height to give a more accurate reading of the body fat content. And body fat content is the true determining factor of how much your health is at risk.
You can check your BMI right now with our BMI calculator by choosing your height, current weight and gender. If your BMI is over 35, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery.
