Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. The same formula is used for men and women.
- A BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight.
- A BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal.
- A BMI less than 18.5 is considered underweight.
Our menopause tracking tools monitor your BMI. If you look at your Fitness Tab you will see your daily BMI and advice on an ideal weight for your height based on the above recommendations.
Note: some people now believe that the Waist to Hip ratio is a better indicator of health than BMI.
