The BMI index for determining body fat can be inaccurate.
BMI, or Body Mass Index, estimates whether one is over or under weight for his or her height.
According to new research, even your sense of hearing may be threatened by being overweight.
The most common criticism of the BMI is that it cannot tell the difference between fat and muscle. Because muscle is denser than fat an athlete’s BMI might indicate that he is overweight, but that extra weight might be composed more of muscle than fat.
