BMI is a reliable measurement for adults from the age of 18 and taller than 140 cm. It cannot be applied in any way to pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Moreover, BMI calculations are not reliable for athletes or for those involved in regular physical training, as it develops a higher muscle mass compared to fat mass, the weight of which affects the total weight of a person. BMI does not therefore take into consideration the body composition of individuals (muscle mass, bone structure).
It simply evaluates the risk of developing health problems linked to weight. However, consulting a doctor or nutritionist is highly recommended in order to fully understand the result or for more information about your state of health.
