  • BMI doesn't mena anything..what you NEED is a BMR caluclater..this is called Basal Metabolic Rate..its what your body burns breathing,digesting food,heart,etc...

    this is the minimum you need to NOT lose weighth..its what your body burns if you were to sleep 24/7...add in say 100 calories from you walking..tying your shoe,shopping for food..showering..etc..THIS is the minimum..

    eat more than you burn: gain weighth

    burn more calories than you eat: lsoe weighth...simple..
