BMI Chart Poster - BMI Table for Everyone

This BMI poster uses the established body mass index or BMI chart to help individuals see where their weight falls in proportion to their height. Show them where they are on the scale and guide them to use effective diet and lifestyle means to lose weight.
Use the BMI index on this wellness poster to assess weight and health risk.

- This wellness poster advises, "Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of your weight relative to your height. It may not be accurate for athletes and those with a muscular build or for seniors and others who have a reduced muscle mass. Talk to your doctor to see if you should lose weight. A weight loss of just 10% of your current weight will help lower the risk for developing diseases associated with obesity."
