But Well, it stands for Body Mass Index, which in very simple terms, is the relationship between your height and your overall weight. And unfortunately, this is currently the standard measurement to determine whether you are a healthy weight, overweight, or clinically obese.
. Scientists are suggesting we start using other, better ways to record whether your weight might be a potential health issue. One of the main problems is BMI is only two-dimensional, and doesn’t take into account a person’s body composition. As a result, this means that a super fit, extremely muscular, athletic person, could step on the scales and their BMI will fall into the overweight range!
However, recent research, published in the BMJ, pointed out the flaws in the current guidelines. The results showed that 35% of so-called normal weight adults, judged to be healthy, simply using the BMI formula, were actually considered ‘at risk’, when they were measured using a waist-to-height ratio instead.
mportant factor, when it comes to determining whether you are a high health risk. It’s far more to do with where you are actually carrying your body fat that has an impact on your overall health. And, of course, by this we mean the abdominal, or visceral fat, around your vital organs.
One very simple tool you can use for this measurement is a normal piece of string. Cut the string to the same length as your height, then fold it in half, and wrap it around your middle, in line with your belly button. If your abdominal fat is in the healthy range, then you should be able to make the ends of the string meet around your middle, or maybe even cross over. And if not, you know that you have some work to do to reduce your fat stores.
There really are only two things you can do to decrease your BMI. The first one, a bit tongue in cheek really, is to grow a little bit taller! Seriously, it makes a big difference, as your BMI is a calculation that takes into account your height. The second option, to reduce your BMI fast, which is slightly easier to achieve, is to lose a little of your excess weight.
