Your body mass index, or BMI, provides a quick way for your doctor to estimate your level of body fat. Although not infallible, it can clue him in as to whether you’re at risk of chronic disease and other complications related to being overweight or obese.
A high BMI makes it likely that you’ll be subject to additional health screenings, including diet and physical activity evaluation, family history, blood tests and other appropriate evaluations.

What Is BMR?
BMR stands for basal metabolic rate and represents the number of calories you would burn in a day if you were inactive and stayed in bed all day.

These two figures together give you a representative figure for your daily calorie intake.
