What is a BMI Calculator?

Think a person is healthy if they are thin? Or that an overweight person is unhealthy?
 

When we think of health, we only consider one’s weight. However, a healthy weight is defined by the right weight to height ratio. This is known as Body Mass Index (BMI) and it is a numerical value that assesses whether a person has a healthy body weight in relation to their height.
 

Body Mass Index does not directly measure body fat. However, it is a useful tool to identify potential health risks associated with being overweight or underweight.
 

A BMI calculator allows you to quickly calculate your BMI based on your weight and height.
 

The BMI calculator uses a BMI formula which calculates the value by dividing your weight by the square of your height. The resulting figure indicates whether you are normal weight, underweight, overweight or obese.
 

The BMI calculator result is fairly reliable, but it is always advisable to consult a medical professional to get a comprehensive evaluation of your health.

BMI formula: Weight (kg) ÷ (Height in (m))2

 

International System of Units (SI)

BMI = Weight (kg) ÷ (Height in (m))2

 

Imperial System

BMI = Weight (lb) ÷ (Height (inches)) 2 * 703
