Body Mass Index Information

Body Mass Index is the standard medical method of assessing healthy weight, overweight and obesity. It uses height and weight data. BMI is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in meters. The BMI formula (in pounds/inches) is:

Your Weight (in pounds) x 704.5 divided by Your Height (in inches) x Your Height (in inches)

Interpreting Your BMI

  • If your BMI is 19 to 24.9 you have a healthy weight.
  • If your BMI is 25 to 29.9 you are considered to be overweight and may incur moderate health risks.
  • If your BMI is 30+ you are considered to be obese. Obesity is linked to increased risk of cancer, heart disease and other health problems.
