What is BMI?

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It is a measure that uses a person's height and weight to estimate whether they have a healthy body weight for their height.

What is a BMI calculator?

A BMI calculator allows you to enter height and weight (in your preferred units) to calculate BMI.

What is the formula for BMI?

BMI is calculated by dividing a person's weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters. The formula is:

BMI = weight (kg) / [height (m)]2

On the other hand, if calculating BMI using Lbs for weight and Ft/in for height, the formula is adjusted to:

BMI = weight (lbs) × 703 / (height (ft) × 12 + height (in))2

You can simply enter height and weight in your preferred units in the calculator above to get your result.

What is a healthy BMI?

BMI is commonly used as a screening tool to categorize individuals into weight categories such as underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obese.

The BMI calculator can help you determine the BMI of a person and then compare it with the ranges below.

These are the ranges based on the World Health Organization's BMI values :
  • Underweight. BMI less than 18.4
  • Normal weight. BMI between 18.5 and 24.9
  • Overweight. BMI between 25 and 29.9
  • Obese. BMI over 30

You can refer to the chart below for a visual representation of the different BMI ranges.

What are the limitations of the BMI calculator?

It's important to note that BMI is a simple measurement and doesn't directly measure body fat.

Due to the limitations of BMI, the formula may not be accurate for certain populations, such as athletes with a higher muscle mass, or for individuals with specific health conditions. Always consult with a healthcare professional for personalized health advice.
