The Numbers

Calories, BMI, and Portion Sizes

Do you weigh just the right amount—or are you underweight or overweight? Keeping track of how much you eat, weigh, and exercise can help you make the right choices. Discover how knowing the numbers—calories, BMI, weight, and more—is a big part of staying fit and healthy.
