BMI means Body Mass Index. It is a measure of the proportion of body fat to total body weight, and it is used to define healthy and unhealthy weight ranges.
BMI is a proxy measurement for the ratio of body fat to total body mass, because it does not directly measure body fat. It makes an assumption about the degree of body fat based on weight and height, but it is not able to discriminate between lean and adipose (fat) tissue. Remember there are other factors that could mean your BMI is not a true indicator of healthy weight and for this reason it is not suitable for those who have developed significant muscle mass through training, such as professional athletes.
