What is the BMI?
The body mass index (BMI) allows us to evaluate if a person’s weight represents a health risk.
The BMI only applies to people 18 years or older. In addition, if you’re over 65 years or if your muscles are very developed, your BMI can be slightly higher than 25 without increasing the risks to your health.
|BMI||Weight Category||Risk of Health Problems|
|Less than 18.5||Underweight||Increased|
|18.5 – 24.9||Normal Weight||Least|
|25.0 – 29.9||Overweight||Increased|
|30.0 and over||Obese||High to very high|
