Per the standard BMI measurements using this weight loss calculator, a BMI below 18.5 indicates that you are underweight while a BMI in the range of 18.5-24.9 indicates normal weight. When BMI reaches from 25 to 29.9, this is classified as overweight and a BMI above 30 is definitely a cause for concern because this is considered obese.
Used by the CDC to measure overweight and obesity trends in the country, BMI calculators are one of the most accurate and easy methods for overweight and obesity assessment in people. Both clinicians as well as the general public have access to it, which makes it simple to compare your own weight standing to that of the broad population; you can see into which classification you fall on an precise baseline. For example, you may not know that normally, women tend to have more body fat than men, and older people be apt to have more body fat than younger adults. This is extremely useful information, because based on these individual factors you can get an idea of where you should be as compared to those with similar situations as yourself.
But keep in mind, while BMI is extremely helpful, it is not a diagnostic tool, it is only a screening tool used to identify possible weight problems in adults.
There are other more costly and monotonous ways to measure body fat, like underwater weighing and dual energy x-ray absorptiometry, but studies show that a simple BMI reading is almost as accurate as these other tiresome methods. These clinical methods of body fat measurement are also obscure and this is precisely what makes BMI calculators a handy and useful metric.
One consideration is that highly trained athletes cattying a lot of muscle and low body fat may have a high BMI, because BMI compares your weight with your height. So a massive bodybuilder will have a high BMI due to his superfluous muscle weight stacked on a normal, let's say 6' frame.
With this in mind, the most accurate diagnosis can be made only after further assessments are performed by a licensed medical practitioner or healthcare provider. Some of these factors that they will consider include, but are not limited to diet, family history, physical activity, as well as other recommended and appropriate health screenings and tests.
