Body Mass Index:
One of the major ways that doctors and health professionals are determining if you are overweight or underweight is through BMI. BMI stands for body mass index and this tool is a very practical way to see where you weight is in relation to your age, height, gender and other people in your category.
You don't have to take BMI too seriously though because it's not the most accurate measurement for obesity. Yes, the information the body mass index calculator can conveniently give you a number usually between 15 and 35.
For instance, usually below a body mass index of 18.5 means that you are underweight, for a body mass index of 18.5 to 24.9, you are in the normal range acceptable. A body mass index over 25 means that you are either overweight or obese. Access the Calculator HERE
Body Fat Percentage:
Body fat percentage is the name of the game. It is much better than body weight. Body weight does not take into consideration your muscle mass at all. The scary part is that many weight loss programs that you probably tried in the past or trying right now result in loss of muscle mass - whilst the person still maintains the same level of body fat percentage. That never makes sense to me, does it to you? Frankly, why would you want to call someone a skinning fat person?
Your body fat is deposited in 3 man places, underneath your skin [subcutaneous], around internal organs [internal fat], and right inside your muscle tissue [intramuscular fat].
Skinfold calipers [if you used them before] measure the subcutaneous fat, and from this, derive a body fat percentage. By the way the best way to really know your true body fat percentage is via under water weighing, which is non-existent in 95% commercial fitness facilities (too expensive)
