Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator
BMI is a term that isn't completely familiar to everyone. It is short for Body Mass Index. It approaches a standard, and is the common choice for physicians and for research concerning obesity. With a mathematical formula, BMI uses a person's height and weight for the calculation. Your Body Mass Index is equal to your weight in kilograms divided by your height in meters squared. It is expressed as BMI=kg/m2. In the table below, the risks for disease associated with being over weight or obese are listed based on BMI and waist size for women and men. For your convenience, use the calculator below the chart for your BMI.
