What’s Your BMI?


The Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement is a great way to identify a healthy weight range for your height. If you have a BMI below 18.5 you are underweight for your height, if you have a BMI between 18.5-24.9, you are in the normal weight range for your height. A BMI between 25-29.9 is overweight and 30 and over is obese.

**Special note: Although the BMI is a useful tool, it does not take into account muscle mass. Therefore, if you have a large amount of muscle, you may have a high BMI, which may not be indicative of your actual weight status.
