Weight Loss Tools at UPMC in Central Pa.

We offer a variety of tools to help you manage your weight. From calculating your BMI, to understanding how to order a healthy restaurant meal, we give you the most up-to-date and useful information.


  • Adult BMI Calculator. Experts are increasingly urging people to know their BMI, a figure that takes into account not just weight but also height to indicate body fat. Your BMI is more important than your weight in measuring whether you are overweight or obese.
  • Target Heart Rate Calculator. Your target heart rate is the range at which sustained physical activity - running, cycling, swimming laps, or any other aerobic exercise - is considered safe and effective.

Healthy Practices for Weight Management

  • Helpful information on how to deal with food cravings, stay on course with your diet and make healthier choices.
