Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI is the typical gauge used by medical personnel to determine a person's body fat percentage. Of course, this is not a fair measurement for people at extremes of muscle mass who carry a lot of their weight purely in muscle alone.
For the average person, BMI gives an estimate on how much of their body is fat tissue.
A healthy value is considered between 18.5 and 24.9. Being under or over this range typically suggests too little or too much body fat.
