Body Adiposity Index (BAI): What Does It Mean?

Posted on March 31, 2011 by Leave a comment

body fatYou’ve likely heard of the Body Mass Index (BMI), hip to waist ratio, height to weight indexes, and other methods for calculating if one is overweight. But have you heard of Body Adiposity Index, or BAI?

BAI has been getting a lot of press lately and is being touted by some as “better than BMI.” While I believe it’s good to have another tool in the healthy weight loss arsenal, unfortunately I don’t believe this one is user-friendly enough to be of much use outside of a clinical trial setting.
