BMI Calculator

Body Mass Index is a measurement of body fat using your weight and your height.

These are the calculations:

  1. Measure your weight in kilograms (kg).
  2. Measure your height in meters (m).

Once you have those measurements, you can use the following formula to calculate your BMI:

BMI = weight (kg) / (height (m) * height (m))

For example, if you weigh 70 kilograms and your height is 1.75 meters, the calculation would be as follows:

BMI = 70 kg / (1.75 m * 1.75 m)

Using a calculator, you would first square your height:

1.75 * 1.75 = 3.0625

Then divide your weight by the squared height:

70 kg / 3.0625 = 22.857

In this example, the BMI would be approximately 22.857.

After calculating your BMI, you can refer to the following ranges to interpret the results:

  • Underweight: BMI less than 18.5
  • Normal weight: BMI between 18.5 and 24.9
  • Overweight: BMI between 25 and 29.9
  • Obesity: BMI 30 or higher

Remember that BMI is a general indicator and does not take into account other factors such as muscle mass or body composition. It's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional for a more comprehensive assessment.
