BMI (Body Mass Index) Chart Information
Body mass index is defined as the individual’s body weight divided by the square of his or her height. The formulae universally used in medicine produce a unit of measure of kg/m2. BMI can also be determined using a BMI chart, which displays BMI as a function of weight (horizontal axis) and height (vertical axis) using contour lines for different values of BMI or colors for different BMI categories
Daily Calorie Requirements & Info
Both men and women need a certain amount of calories each day to supply our bodies with fuel. If we don’t consume a certain amount of calories, the body will call on the supply of fat stored to give us energy. If we are active, our body needs more energy than when we are rather inactive.
The chart below gives a calorie count of how many calories are required to maintain your desired weight. Please remember this is just a guide and the figures listed are to maintain weight. If you consume more calories than recommended you can (and probably will) put weight on. To lose weight keep your daily calories under the required amount.
