A body fat calculator can help determine the right body fat percentage that you need to lose. This will ensure you don’t overdo your diet plan because even if you want to keep your slim body after the celebrations, it’s best to do it the right and healthy way. The body fat calculator or more famously known as the BMI formula works by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared. The figure obtained can be associated with the ranges in the table below:

Yet, the above measurement varies according to sex and age as women tend to have a higher body fat percentage than men and older people tend to have a higher body fat than younger people. A proper reading of the body fat calculator should be done by professional health advisors. Slimming centres in Malaysia have adopted the BMI formula to get a reliable reading of clients’ body fat percentage to help decide on a slimming treatment. Marie France Bodyline also uses the BMI formula as part of our analysing tools. Apart from that, we also have a few other self-evaluation methods such as the body fat calculator that will assess your ideal waistline ratio by taking your waist measurement and dividing it with your hip measurement.

At Marie France Bodyline our holistic approach towards weight loss takes into consideration these factors to determine the right slimming treatment for you, ensuring that you leave with your dream body and a smiley face filled with confidence.
