Description

The formula to calculate BMI requires information about a person'sheight in meters and weight in kilograms. For weight in pounds andheight in inches, there is a different formula, but due torounding, it may not produce the exact same results.There are someconcerns related to BMI that mostly have to do with the fact thatfat and lean muscle tissue are not considered in the formula. Forexample, a man who is an athlete may have a higher BMI calculationthan a man who never leaves his desk at the office and isoverweight. Of course, you would not say that the athlete isoverweight - but he is muscle bound, and muscle weighs more thanfat.Another situation that may cause a misleading BMI is thecalculation for a tall and lean person. The extra height of theindividual comes with extra weight. This might skew the BMI andmake it appear high even if the person is relatively lean. Also, asa person ages they may lose height, so the BMI may be increasedwithout any significant change in the person's weight.
