What is BMI?

Determining ideal weight is important to live a healthy life. Researchers have divulged a matrix to help individuals to determine their ideal weight according to their height.

BMI value under 18.5 = > Underweight

BMI value between 18.5 to 24.99 => Normal weight

BMI value between 25 to 29.9 => Overweight

BMI value above 40 => Overweight

The BMI score is directly proportional to your health related issues. It means that high BMI score indicates health related problems such as stroke, Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, stress urinary incontinence, sleep apnea, etc. Furthermore, not maintaining weight according to your height can cause adverse effects on your body in the long run.

Your weight also depends on your body composition i.e.  muscles, fats and bones present in your body. There is no such perfect measure to determine the amount of fats that you contain in your body. But body mass index BMI is considered to give a relatively fair assessment of your ideal weight and fats percentage.

An individual is more prone to health issues if there are higher levels of body fat present in her body. The distribution of fats is also taken into consideration for determining body fats. Mostly, obese people have a higher inclination to get affected by diabetes, heart risks and high blood pressure according to BMI score.

However, some critics the BMI matrix and says that it becomes a skewed matrix since it does not undertake amount of body fats present in a human being. Tricky to understand? Let us explain it with the help of an example.

A muscular man or woman might have gained weight owing to increased muscle mass obtained from rigorous workouts and exercise. According to the BMI score, he will appear obese because of increased muscle and weight gain. On the other hand, an old man will seem to be healthy regardless of the fact that he/she had significant muscle loss.
