BMI

A key indicator of whether you are in a healthy weight range is the body mass index (BMI), which measures body fat based on height and weight. Although BMI is unstable in teenagers as a result of varied and rapid growth rates, it can give you an idea of whether you are in a healthy weight range. You can calculate BMI by using online BMI tools or consulting a doctor.
