6 simple steps for weight loss and wellness in New York City or Philadelphia

Weight loss step 1
Know your body mass index

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from your weight relative to your height. BMI is a fairly reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat, such as dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).

Since it is easy and more practical, BMI can be considered an alternative for direct measures of body fat as it is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight.

Weight loss step 1

Interpret and understand your BMI
