Body Mass Index (BMI) - What Does It Mean?
Have you heard the term body mass index (BMI) but never knew what it meant?
BMI is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight. There are many free BMI calculators on the web. You will input your height, weight and gender and based on the input you give, the BMI calculator will return a number. Here's what the numbers mean:
* Underweight = <18.5
* Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
* Overweight = 25-29.9
* Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Why Waist Size Matters
The more abdominal fat a person carries around the mid-section, the higher the chance of serious disease such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Those with apple body types are more at risk than those with pear-shaped bodies.

How To Measure Your Waist
Your correct weight for height is in part, determined by your waist size. To find out whether you are fit, your waist size (in inches) should be half of your height (in inches).
For example,if you are six feet tall, that is 72 inches. Therefore your waist size should be no more than 36 inches (half of 72).
The best way to measure your waist is to place the tape measure at the top of your belly button and suck in. Yes, I said suck in! It gets the muscle out of the way.
