The Body Mass Index is actually a tool that is used by most health practitioners to measure a person’s body mass and to indicate if he belongs to:
However, there is something that you should know, not to be depressed at the result of the BMI, and it will surprise you for sure.
According to Todd Miller that the BMI is an index that would tell the person’s body weight over their height, and the formula is body weight (should be in kilograms) that is divided by the height in square meters. Furthermore, the idea of BMI is that, when a person is tall then he should weigh more.
Actually, it is weird to know that because of a single decimal point, it would get to classify you neither the underweight and normal then the rest of the weight classification. Mr. Miller continued and said, “the problem of BMI as a tool in identifying someone’s marker of health is when you are talking about the body weight.
Especially if you are the type of person that is has firm muscles, then you will weigh more, and the weight tool will read what is heavy and not, so it will end up as if you have unwanted fast which is not. Did you get it?
There are numerous of athletes that would be categorized as obese, because they have more muscles in them that makes them heavier, but they aren’t obese of course, given the fact that they are athlete and prone to vigorous activities.
Ironically, BMI’s is not that accurate, because it only calculates the fat and not the muscle of a person.
