What is a BMI score?

BMI stands for Body Mass Index, it provides an indication of how healthy your weight is and is a system commonly used by doctors. A BMI score is calculated from your weight and height, typically a healthy BMI score ranges anywhere between 18.5 and 25. A score below 18.5 is classed as underweight, where as a score above 25 is classed as overweight and a score over 30 as obese.
WeighIn.net uses a BMI score of 22 in order to calculate your ideal weight. Please note that BMI scores are not a suitable guide for pregnant women, children or those with an athletic/muscular build.

 

What is a Daily Calorie Guide?

This is a guideline figure to the amount of calories that you should consume each day in order to achieve your target weight. WeighIn.net calculates this figure based on a number of factors including your sex, age, height and activity level.
