It's calculated using a person's weight and height and provides an easy indicator of body fatness for most people. The limitations of BMI are that it can't discriminate between body fat and muscle, so an extremely fit body builder may find himself obese on the BMI scale. Also, age and sex are not considered in BMI. This fitness assessment should not substitute for the advice of physician and is best used to keep track of the general direction of your fitness rather than an exact measurement.
