Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a common measurement, providing a ratio of weight in relation to height. BMI can be expressed as a mathematical formula in which your body weight (in kilograms) is divided by the square of your height (in meters).
BMI is useful for establishing guidelines of health related risks for healthy adults between the age of 20 and 65 years old. It does not apply to infants, children, adolescents, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and seniors over the age of 65.
BMI is not recommended to be the only diagnostic tool or measurement for body composition and fitness. Other factors must be considered in order to determine if a certain BMI is associated with an increased risk for health or nutritional problems.
