BMI offers a decent estimate of body fat for most individuals.

However, BMI does not directly measure body fat, so some people, like muscular athletes, may have an obese category BMI even though they don’t have surplus body fat.

By modifying your eating habits, and getting more exercise, you can assist yourself in losing weight. Prescription drugs and weight-loss surgery are further alternatives for controlling obesity.
