The Jenny Craig BMI Chart for men is one of many strategies we use for motivation to reach weight loss targets, while our tasty and satisfying meals are the icing on the cake.
At Jenny Craig, men’s weight loss is personalised, taking individual tastes and preferences into consideration. Men are as varied as women, so tailoring every individual’s weight loss program according to specific guidelines makes for progress. The Jenny Craig BMI Chart for men factors height and weight metrics together to deliver your BMI score, providing evidence to back up the findings of the bathroom scales or bedroom mirror.

How does the BMI chart for men work?
BMI is a universally accepted measurement of relative obesity according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). In other words, BMI can tell you if you are underweight, overweight or in-between. The BMI chart is most useful for men whose excess weight mostly consists of fat.
Fatty deposits accumulate at the waistline, stomach, thighs, arms, chest, back and more, with excess tissue putting pressure on internal organs and joints. Lowering BMI is the best health measure an obese or overweight man can make, and Jenny Craig will show you exactly how it’s done. By factoring in your weight and height on the Jenny Craig BMI Calculator, your personal BMI score will appear, with readings referenced by the chart below:
18.4 or less (underweight)
18.5 – 24.9 (healthy weight)
25.0 – 29.9 (overweight)
30.0 or more (obese)
How to view your BMI from the chart?
The BMI chart is a guideline tool. It isn’t meant to take the place of medical assessments or diagnosis. It can however, tell us the relative amount of fat carried by most people. It’s also worth knowing that men are built differently to women, with slightly more muscle mass overall, skewing some BMI results slightly. In any case, it’s fat rather than muscle that weight loss clients are wanting to remove, and there is plenty of opportunity along the way to introduce a healthy exercise routine for building muscle mass.
Therefore, BMI is useful at all stages of weight loss. Your initial consultations will include the creation of a meals plan that takes weight, height, age, health, bone-structure, physical activities and more into consideration. At Jenny Craig, we know the plan is working when we see you enjoying meals from over 65 delicious menu choices. You will appreciate Jenny Craig solutions every time you step on the scales or measure BMI progress.

Is the BMI chart accurate for men?
The BMI chart is accurate for both men and women who are carrying excess fatty tissue. Countless men have achieved weight loss targets while following BMI guidelines, while performance athletes are constantly aware of personal BMI levels. BMI is all pervasive in society, but not everyone appreciates how easy it is to measure and utilise for weight loss advantage. There are some men however, who aren’t suited to using BMI as an accurate indicator or weight loss needs.
Weight lifters and body builders
Gym junkies and others carrying large muscle mass
Men suffering ailments requiring medical intervention
Nationalities where size and weight affects scores, such as Pacific Island men
Children and the elderly
