Abstract


Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height. BMI is a measurement of body
weight based on height and weight. Although BMI does not actually "measure" the percentage of
body fat, it is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on height. Due to its ease of
measurement and calculation, it is the most widely used diagnostic indicator to identify a person's
optimal weight depending on his height. BMI "number" will inform someone if they were
underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. However, due to the wide variety of body types,
the distribution of muscle and bone mass, etc., it is not appropriate to use this as the only or final
indication for diagnosis. Ideal Weight Application (IWa) is a BMI Application which can make
someone to know their body fat easier. IW Apps is application based on Adobe Flash which can run
in Perconal Computer. The purpose of this application is to help someone being success in their diet
program.
