Dr. Altschuler uses the 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. Once you calculate your body mass index, Dr. Altschuler can help you decide which type of weight loss program is best for you!
How to Calculate Body Mass Index:
- Enter your age.
- Select your sex.
- Enter your height.
- Enter your weight.
- Click “Calculate”
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 long term.
