B.M.I. Prime is simple way of defining a single figure that is not immedieately related to any other units of measurement, but which can quickly and easily rank a person into a category. Eg:

• BMI Prime > 0.74 and < 1.00 = Optimal weight
• BMI Prime > 1 = Overweight
Bmi Prime is a variation of the Quetelet index. If you have a Prime of less than 0.74, you are underweight. If your prime is more than 0.74 and less than 1.00, your weight is ideal. If your BMI prime is more than 1 you are seen as being overweight.
