Body mass index (BMI) is a metric used to quickly gauge a person’s weight category. It’s a simple calculation of body fat relative to weight and height. BMI provides a reasonable estimate for most people, but there are limitations:
- It may underestimate body fat for older adults or people with low muscle mass
- It may overestimate body fat for people who are especially muscular
A more robust body composition analysis would include the use of a bioimpedance scale, like the InBody scale that’s used as part of every Options Medical Weight Loss program.
