Body Mass Index (BMI)

Your BMI simply expresses the ratio of your weight to your height. You can calculate for your BMI using these formulas:

BMI Formulas

  • Using metric units: Weight expressed in kilograms (kg) divided by the square of height expressed in meters (m2)
    For example: 80 kg / 1.82 m2= 24.69.
  • Using imperial units: Weight in pounds (lbs) multiplied by 703, divided by the square of height in inches (in2).
    For example: 190 lbs x 730 / 72 in2 = 25.76

BMI Categories

  • Your BMI is considered to be in the ideal range if it is 18.5 and 25.
  • People who have a BMI of less than 18.5 are considered underweight.
  • Those who have a BMI between 25 and 30 are considered overweight.
  • A BMI that is over 30 is considered obese.
