Muscle mass: The body mass index (bmi) is simply a calculation based on weight and height. It does not factor in body composition. Muscle is more dense and heavier than the same volume of fat.

I am 28 yrs & my BMI is 29. Please guide me on effectiveness of products like herbalife in losing weight and keeping the body fit and healthy ?

Herbalife: Herbalife is a company that makes all kinds of products, and you would need to look carefully at each one to decide if it would be safe and helpful for you. I agree with my colleagues that sustainable weight loss and maintenance depend more on healthy eating and exercising than relying on external diet pills and processed "diet" foods. You will end up spending more money taking those also. ...Read more

Need more info: Study findings appearing in the may 2010 issue of "obstetrics and gynecology" suggest that racial- and ethnic-specific bmi cutoff values are needed as current cutoffs fail to identify many whites and hispanics as overweight. Other diagnostic measures such as waist circumference and blood pressure should be used in combination with bmi to accurately determine health risk. Consult your physician. ...Read more
