A lot of times we use the BMI, which is the body mass index. I think it works for some people, but I wouldn't use it as hard and fast rule. It's a good thumbnail sketch to try to compare you to the population of people that they have put in with the BMI over years and years of input. It gives you an idea about whether you are fit. I wouldn't say that it is the only way to do that. Body fat testing is another way where do you get dumped in a tank or if you have someone measuring your adipose tissue via calipers. If they know what they are doing, a tape to find out what your body fat is can be a really close approximation as to what you get from being dumped in a tank.
