Calculate Your Body Mass Index
What is your ideal weight?
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
** BMI does not differentiate between body fat and muscle mass. Therefore, athletes, body builders and people who have a lot of muscle bulk will have a higher BMI but are not overweight or obese.
Women: Desirable body mass is 21-23. Obesity (20 percent above the desirable range) begins at 27.5. Serious obesity (40% above) begins at 31.5.
Men: Desirable body mass is 22 to 24. Obesity begins at 28.5, and serious obesity begins at 33.

6. Eat more grains, fruits and vegetables. They taste good and give you a lot of energy.
7. Join in physical activities with friends and family. This will make you feel good, look good and stay fit!

Dr Bazzi ... is great with patients and has a sense of humor doctors no longer carry these days. 2 thumbs up! RJ
I was so comfortable with the staff that I moved over to having Dr. Shaya as my primary care physician. KD
Dr. Maki was very good in explaining what was going on, and less than 3 days later I had gotten rid of a cough that I had previously had for more than a month. Lilly
WONDERFUL!!!! The staff and Dr. were really great. Dawn
Heart disease and stroke are two of the leading causes of death in the United States but getting at least 150 minutes a week (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity can put you at a lower risk for these diseases.
