What does BMI stand for and why is it important?

BMI is an acronym for Body Mass Index. You find it by taking your weight and dividing it by your height (in inches) squared, then multiplied by 703. The result you get from this is your BMI. 17 and below is underweight, 18 to 24 is normal, 24 to 28 is overweight (I may be off on some of these numbers), and 32 and over is clinically obese.
