BMI is closely correlated with body fat. However, there are limitations to this measurement. It may overestimate body fat in athletes and those that have short stature with a muscular build.
If your BMI falls in the normal range, good for you! Keep practicing healthy nutritional habits along with physical activity to prevent weight gain – especially as you age. If you are not happy with your BMI classification, call us at 678-781-3021. Our registered dieticians can help you reach and maintain a healthier weight.
