Height weight-bmi

  1. 1. WHAT DO THEY MEAN AND HOW ARE THEY CALCULATED
  2. 2.  BMI IS THE RATION OF WEIGHT TO HEIGHT IT IS USED AS A GUIDE TO DETERMINE APPROPRIATE BODY WEIGHT BMI HAS LIMITATIONS APPROPRIATE BODY WEIGHT FOR ANY INDIVIDUAL INCLUDES MANY FACTORS
  3. 3.  MEASURE YOUR HEIGHT IN INCHES MEASURE YOUR WEIGHT IN LBS To calculate your BMI multiply your weight by 703 and divide that number by your height in inches, squared the result is the BMIExample: weigh=154lbs height = 5’9’ tall or (69”) (154 X 703)/(69 X69)= 22.73
  4. 4.  A BMI between 20 and 24 is considered normal A BMI under 20 indicates that you are underweight A BMI over 24 indicates you are over weight A BMI over 30 indicates that you are obese  But Wait!!!!!!!
  5. 5.  Muscle is heavier than fat. Using just a bit of elementary math we can determine that the ratio of weight to height will be higher for athletes and those who have a very low percentage of body fat . You also don’t need a calculator to tell you if you are extremely over or under weight a mirror will do that.
  6. 6.  Blood Pressure Reading General physical condition How is you weight distributed (too much around your middle??) Age Are YOU happy with your weight???!!!!
