Keeping track of your health has become increasingly popular, especially with all the new diets that have been becoming mainstream. Tracking factors such as heart rate, weight, and basal metabolic rate all have their part in measuring a person’s wellness. One of the most measured factors is BMI, which is body mass index. This is the measurement of body fat based on height and weight of a person. In layman’s terms, it tells you if you’re overweight depending on your height and weight. My Excel Templates offers a free BMI Calculator that is easy to use and follow.
