The objective of the present study was to compare and discuss the nutritional status of older women according to different categories of BMI. Additionally, the study was aimed at introducing the bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) as a tool to assess the nutritional status. Thirty-two women (60 years or older, physically independent, and with moderate level of physical activity) were divided into three groups according toBMI classification: G1 (BMI
