Today's I was coveringBody Mass Index (BMI)with the 8th graders of City Collegiate Public Charter for a program that is offered by my new non-profit organization,THE INFINITY WELLNESS FOUNDATION, and I thought you'd learn something by covering it too!
I'm not a huge fan of using BMI with the majority of my clients because unfortunately, BMI is not TMI (Too Much Information).
My biggest gripe with BMI is that doesn't take into consideration some important info in it's measurement - which is accurately represented by the picture below...
Two people with the same weight and height will have the same BMI, even if
their composition is different!
Body Mass Index:
Compares your height versus your weight
Determines a healthy weight based upon how tall someone is
