Merits & Demerits of BMI:

The main advantages of BMI as a body fat indicator are:-

  • BMI is very easy to measure. Only two parameters, height and weight are required which can be easily measured by common people.
  • As it is accepted as a general standard for measuring body fat, a person can compare his health with others.

The limitations of BMI are:-

  • BMI can't discriminate between body fat and muscle. So a body builder may find himself as obese in BMI scale.
  • Age and sex are not considered in BMI measurement. So analysis of BMI varies with those parameters.
