BMI Mix Up

There are so many sites to find BMI calculators. It’s not hard to find but making sure you can trust the calculator is crucial.  I have shared a couple sites that are government and medical sites on the Calculate Your BMI page on my blog, but here they go again.

CDC:  https://www.cdc.gov/healthyweight/assessing/bmi/index.html

The BMI calculator on Web MD is slightly different than the one on the cdc.gov site. I attribute this difference to the fact that the government site allows for the .5 and other “.”inches for people who are not a solid one number only whereas the Web MD site does not allow for that so you have to pick rounding down or up. Which way you round will impact your results.  Both site calculators work fine.

There are other government sites that have articles on health, nutrition and weight. I will be going into more detail throughout the next several days of blog posts so be sure to come back to see what might be useful for you.
