Body Mass Index (BMI) Q & A

Advanced Physicians Weight Management

How Does the Body Mass Index/BMI Work?

The Body Mass Index is a simple calculation that helps to determine your ideal weight. The Body Mass Index considers two main figures: your height and your weight. The BMI Calculator will then be used to generate a number that represents your Body Mass Index. This number will indicate which category you fall into. A BMI of under 18.5 is underweight, a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is a healthy weight, a BMI of 25 to 29.9 is overweight, and a BMI of greater than 30 is obese. Today there are many Americans that are in the overweight and obese categories, so don't let your results discourage you. It is possible to lose excess weight and make long-term changes with Dr. Goore and the Advanced Physicians Weight Management team.

What is a Body Fat Analysis?

This is a test that uses biometrical impedance analysis to determine how much of your total body weight is fat. Excess fat harms the body, so the numbers revealed on the Body Fat Analysis can help you and your doctor determine exactly how much weight you need to lose. At Advanced Physicians Weight Management, Dr. Goore takes on a comprehensive approach in creating plans that assist patientsĀ in losing excess fat.

How Fast Can You Lose Weight Once These Tests Are Complete?

As soon as these tests, body measurements, and lab work are complete, you will begin to see changes during your weight loss journey. The average weight loss for most patients is two pounds per week. We encourage patients to keep a food diary so they are fully aware of exactly what they eat and how it impacts their weight. If you are committed to losing excess fat, a medical weight loss program is the ideal solution.
