The Body Mass Index (BMI) measures the weight status of your body in relation to the fat. It is a simple tool that helps to figure out the amount of excess body fat and the associated risks of carrying this extra weight. It can be applied to both men and women. It is advisable to use ‘Body Mass Index’ along with ‘Waist to Hip Ratio’ to get a complete picture of your weight status.
Since height and weight are the only factors in the formula, it does not account for bone and muscle mass. Someone with more muscle mass and healthy body fat could have an overweight BMI score. On the other side of that, someone could have a normal BMI score but have too much fat and too little muscle on their body.
Please, enter your weight and height to the corresponding fields below:
