English: The graph shows the correlation between body mass index (BMI) and percent body fat (%BF) for men in NCHS’ NHANES III 1994 data. The body fat percent shown uses the method from Romero-Corral et al. to convert NHANES BIA to %BF (June 2008). “Accuracy of body mass index in diagnosing obesity in the adult general population”. International Journal of Obesity 32 (6) : 959–956. DOI:10.1038/ijo.2008.11. PMID 18283284. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A bmi calculator is a system of measuring body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.

From our experience the body mass index calculations using this type system are not very accurate, since they do not take into account your lean body mass, and your body fat percentage.

But to get a quick ballpark figure, they are satisfactory. The best one online can be found here. In my section weight loss tracker I explain in full detail how to correctly do these measurements, using your lean body mass.

Body Mass Index (bmi) calculator is an outdated model, and should be used only to get an idea of what your weight should be.

In my weekly weight loss chart section, I explain how you can use this tool for creating the body of your dreams.

This system takes into account your lean body mass, and shows you the results that you are getting from your weight loss program on a weekly basis.

Once you create this chart you can use this section on interpreting your weekly weight loss chart, to know exactly how to adjust your approach while you are moving toward creating a lean, healthy body.
