Note: BMI (Body Mass Index) is a formula that uses your weight and height to estimate body fat. Bear in mind that muscle is more dense than fat, so a more muscular person is likely to have a relatively higher BMI than a less muscular person with the same body weight. Therefore, it is important to take your actual percentage of body fat into account when estimating your ideal weight. BMI is only one factor in determining whether you are fit and healthy.
