As a formula that dates back nearly 200 years, it’s a wonder why people still rely on BMI to track their fitness. More dangerously, people use it as an indicator of their overall health.
BMI is a simple metric which uses your weight and height to determine body composition. As these are just two factors that make up your body, BMI is surely unreliable:
- It makes no reference to waist size;
- It doesn’t account for your bone density; and
- It doesn’t include the proportions of muscle and fat within your body.
