The Body Mass Index (BMI) is the most popular and internationally accepted measurement of weight in relation to health. It is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women ( for age 2-19 BMI). However, caution should be observed when using the BMI as a measure for interpreting overweight and obesity as body composition can be highly variable yet have the same BMI.
To avoid such situations, successful weight management programs should consider the required timing for feedback signals originating in adipose tissue to influence the brain centers that control eating behaviour and activity (metabolic and motor). Thus, a much better measurement based on calculating and achieving the healthiest weight has being recently proposed.
