The Body Mass Index is the most used measurement to classify Bodyweight conditions. It is a useful tool to screen the general population, but it fails to differentiate fat mass from lean body mass. Using BMI, for heavy athletes or bodybuilders with a large amount of muscle mass can mistakenly fall withing moderate- to high-risk categories.
BMI =weight (KG)/height (m2)
BMI= [weight (lbs)/ height (inches2)]x703
< 18.5 underweight
18.5–24.9 normal weight
30.0–34.9 class I obesity
35.0–39.9 class II obesity
≥ 40.0 class III obesity
>25 has shown an increased disease risk for type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and CVD
TIPP: If you find your self at 25 or higher, you should consider being more active for your health. Achieve 180 min per week on a bike with a heart rate at 110 bpm. Make sure each session takes at least 10 min, and your health will appreciate it
