Body Mass Index (lbs)

Keep in mind that there are a myriad of reasons why BMI isn’t as accurate a measure of health as many of us were brought up to believe, but one of the main ones is that BMI can’t distinguish between fat and muscle. A pound of fat takes up a much larger volume on the body than a pound of muscle, even though they of course weigh the same. (Muscle is about 18 per cent more dense than fat.) As a result, many incredibly fit, athletic, muscular people are labeled “overweight” by their BMI.
