What is my BMI? There are various answers to this question. The best one to use is the percentage of your weight that comes from your excess body fat. If you have a lot of extra weight, you will have a higher BMI than a person who has a more average weight. The equation is actually that one times your height squared. So if you are 6′ tall and weigh 200 pounds, you have a BMI of 27, which is considered to be obese.
Your doctor or nutritionist can help you find out what your BMI is through a test called the Bio-lipidic Profile. You can also get this information on your own by taking a blood test. The test is done by the medical practitioner and then sent to the laboratory where it is measured. This test measures things such as total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and also C-reactive protein.
You should not feel bad if you do not know your Bio-lipidic Profile or BMP. There are many other ways to figure out how healthy you are. Your doctor will be able to give you the results of the test along with a recommended diet and exercise program. It is a good idea to have your results and all of your tests checked by a doctor before you start any kind of diet or exercise program.
You can also get a test at your local pharmacy. Your doctor will prescribe you a kit that you can take home and have the results given to you. The only problem with these kits is that they can be very expensive. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend, you can save money by ordering your results over the internet from home testing sites.
I have heard that an online body fat analyzer test works pretty well. But I haven’t tried it yet. You can find websites online that offer these tests for a low cost. In order to get an accurate test, however, it would be important to take your body fat with a special type of camera in a precise position.
I think the most accurate test is called Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry or DEXA. DEXA uses two different machines to determine your body fat level. One machine measures your fat using radiation while the other machine measures your blood flow. This makes it easier to determine your total fat because the blood flow readings don’t show changes as much as the radiation reading does. There are only two measurements of fat levels that are very accurate, but they don’t take into account all of the factors that contribute to fat levels in the body.
A good way to judge your body fat level is to have someone measure your body and then take blood tests at home to compare it to what you weigh today. That way, you will get an idea of what your current BMI is and if you need to work on your diet and exercise more. The test will also tell you if there is an underlying cause for your body fat. It is important to note that blood tests are not the same thing as BMI tests, so you should know what your BMI is before testing yourself.
You can find these tests online. Many doctors are now offering them, but you should still see your doctor before starting any program. Your doctor will want to make sure that you are healthy enough to take the test and that it is done properly. I was once able to find a website that offers a free DEXA test.
