    *Please note:  BMI is not always an accurate way to determine whether you need to lose weight. Here are some exceptions:

    • Body builders: Because muscle weighs more than fat, people who are unusually muscular may have a high BMI.
    • Elderly: In the elderly it is often better to have a BMI between 25 and 27, rather than under 25. If you are older than 65, for example, a slightly higher BMI may help protect you from osteoporosis.
    • Children: While an alarming number of children are obese, do not use this BMI calculator for evaluating a child. Talk to your pediatrician about the appropriate weight for your child's age.

    Doctors use a few different methods to determine whether you are overweight. Your doctor may also take your waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio into consideration.  Read more
