Our body-mass index (BMI) shows the amount of fat we carry, and is actually a more reliable tool for assessing our weight than those weight-and-height charts. Use this easy online calculator to find your BMI. Then check your results to see if you are underweight, normal, overweight, or obese.
Go to the online calculator at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
If your BMI isn’t where you want it to be, consider the benefits of walking. For information and ideas, go to Walking: Better For You Than You Think! and see the great book, SuperFoods HealthStyle1>.
