Body Mass Index is a Good Gauge of Body Fat

A reliable way to determine whether a person has too much body fat is to calculate the ratio of their weight to their height squared. This ratio, called the body mass index (BMI), accounts for the fact that taller people have more tissue than shorter people, and so they tend to weigh more.
These BMI cut points in adults are the same for men and women, regardless of their age.
