What does BMI mean?
BMI stands for Body Mass index. It is used to give you an idea of whether you’re underweight, overweight or an ideal weight for your height. It’s useful to know because if your weight increases or decreases outside of the ideal range, your health risks may increase.
BMI (Body Mass Index) is an indicator of how healthy your weight is, given your height.
How accurate is BMI?
