BMI (Body Mass Index) applies to most adults both women and men over 20. BMI does not tell the body fat directly as it just looks the weight relation to your hight. However, this being said, some researches indicate that BMI correlates to direct measures of body fat similar to underwater weighing and is therefore considered to be an inexpensive alternative for these more advanced and more expensive methods that are also available.

Reviews

Not too bad

Looks decent and it does what it says on the tin. Thanks the dev for making it available to the community.

But:

  • I would have preferred that I can change the colour to my needs without fiddling with the code
  • Not to have a link to the dev’s website right on a front page
  • Be able to actually change the Widget Title. Right now that setting doesn’t do anything.
  • Be able to remove the Imperial unit when not needed (many countries don’t use it)/
