Body Mass Index (BMI) is a way to look at your body weight relative to your height. It is a scientifically-based index that categorizes you as being underweight, normal, overweight or obese, and also lets you know about your risk for developing obesity-associated diseases.
Body Mass Index or BMI is only an estimate of obesity. BMI may falsely identify heavily muscled individuals as obese and fail to identify as obese those with excess body fat at normal body weight.
Based on your BMI calculation, you can determine your classification based on the chart below. Individuals with a BMI value of 25 and higher may be at increased risk for certain obesity-related conditions.
Using your BMI results as a starting point, you can create a personalized approach to healthier living through your Distributor's trusted support and our science-based nutrition and weight-management products.
