Body Mass Index (BMI) stands for a numerical value of your weight in relation to your height. BMI’s are good indicators of healthy weights for adult men and women, regardless of body frame size. Higher BMI’s (25+) are associated with increased health risks in some people.
How to Use
The Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator can be used as a general gauge of how appropriate your body weight is for your height. By entering your current height and weight, you can asses if you are underweight, overweight or just right.
The BMI Calculator is based on data taken from middle-aged men and women. It may not be accurate for women who are pregnant or nursing, competitive athletes, and the elderly. The normal ranges for BMI in children are very different and vary according to age and gender.
