BMI (Body Mass Index) Calculator
For your convenience, Dr. Thaxton has included this BMI or body mass index calculator to help determine if a medical weight loss program is right for you. Your BMI provides a ratio of your height and weight.
The body mass index scale is used to determine if your weight level is obese, overweight, underweight or if you are in a healthy weight range. Although BMI is widely used, the most accurate way to evaluate your weight is by using the state-of-the-art InBody Body Composition Analysis we utilize in our program.
It is not enough just to know what your weight and height is. What is really important to know is the composition of your body weight which helps us to accurately determine what percentage of your weight is lean body mass and what percentage is body fat mass
If your BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9, then you are considered to be at a normal and healthy weight range. A BMI over 25 indicates that you are either overweight or obese, and you may be eligible to pursue one of our medical weight loss programs. Our team of weight loss specialists can help you lose excess weight and learn the skills to keep the weight off for the long term.
