Your body mass index, or BMI, provides a quick way for your doctor to estimate your level of body fat. Although not infallible, it can clue him in as to whether you're at risk of chronic disease and other complications related to being overweight or obese.

 

A high BMI makes it likely that you'll be subject to additional health screenings, including diet and physical activity evaluation, family history, blood tests and other appropriate evaluations.

Below are some tools to calculate your

BMI, BMR and Caloric Needs.

  • BMI, or body mass index, is a number calculated from your height and weight which is then used to assess your body composition.

 

  • BMR calculator generates the number of calories your body burns per day at rest. Your BMR with activity factor is the number of calories your body burns per day based on the activity factor you selected.
