What Does Your BMI Tell You?
Your BMI, or body mass index, is an estimation (remember that: just an estimation) of how much body fat you have. Body fat builds when your body’s energy balance is off. Your body gets energy from the foods you eat. When you consume food, your body breaks it down into glucose using insulin. That glucose goes into your muscle’s cells and is further broken down into energy. Essentially if we are eating too much, our bodies cannot breatk down all that food, so it gets stored as fat!
As a single measure, BMI is clearly not a perfect measure of health. But it can be used as a starting point to help us make better choices with our eating. And although somewhat relative, a good goal would be to get as close as you can to a BMI of 30 or below. It’s a good idea to know your BMI, but just like the scale, it is NOT the only way to measure good health! To find out what your BMI is, use our calculator below. Remember, it’s just an estimator, and to be used only as a guideline!
