Calculate Your (BMI) Body Mass Index
The Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator can be used to calculate your BMI value and
weight status while taking
your age into consideration. Use the "metric units" tab if you are more comfortable with the
standard metric units. The referenced weight range and calculation formula is listed below.
Your BMI is a measurement of your body weight based on your height and weight.
Although your BMI does not
actually "measure" your percentage of body fat, it is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight
on your height. Due to its ease of measurement and calculation, it is the most widely used diagnostic
indicator to identify a person's optimal weight depending on his height. Your BMI "number" will inform
if you are underweight, of normal weight, overweight, or obese. However, due to the wide variety of body
types, the distribution of muscle and bone mass, etc., it is not appropriate to use this as the only or
final indication for diagnosis.
