BODY MASS INDEX

The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a statistical measurement which compares a person's weight and height. Though it does not actually measure the percentage of body fat, it is used to estimate a healthy body weight based on how tall a person is.

Find your ideal weight

WANT to know how much you should weigh?

Then use our BMI calculator.

It's a simple way to find out if you've been pilling on the pounds - or whether you're slim and trim.
Just find your height at the top of the table and your weight on the left hand side.
Then follow the lines upwards and across, and the point where they meet is your ideal weight.
If the lines meet within the green band then you are in the ideal range for your height.
If they meet in the pink band it shows you are overweight and the white band means you weigh less than you should. If they meet in the red band then you are technically obese and in the dark red band you are severley obese - lose weight or risk heart attackes and other weight related illnesses.

How is calculated?

BMI= Weight (kg)
Height² (m²)
BMI= Weight (lb) x 703
Height² (in²)
BMI= Weight (lbs) x 4.88
Height² (ft²)

IMPORTANT: The BMI Calculator is only a guideline and should be treated as such. BMI is only one measure of your health. Body fat percentage, blood pressure, resting heart rate, cholesterol and other measurements are at least as important as BMI. You need to get the whole picture.

Due to its ease of measurement and calculation, it is the most widely used diagnostic tool to identify weight problems within a population, usually whether individuals are underweight, overweight or obese. It was invented between 1830 and 1850 by the Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet during the course of developing "social physics". Body mass index is defined as the individual's body weight divided by the square of his or her height. The formulae universally used in medicine produce a unit of measure of kg/m2. BMI can also be determined using a BMI chart, which displays BMI as a function of weight (horizontal axis) and height (vertical axis) using contour lines for different values of BMI or colours for different BMI categories
