How to Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)

Your BMI is a value derived from your body weight and height. It is a way of quantifying the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in your body.

  • To calculate your BMI, you will need to know your height (in meters or inches) and your weight (in kilograms or pounds). You will divide your weight by your height.
  • Metric: BMI = Weight (Kg)/Height (m)2
  • American: BMI = Weight (lb)/Height (inches)2 x 703

Results:

  • 18.5 or under: Underweight
  • 18.5-24.9: Normal
  • 25-29.9: Overweight
  • 30 or above: Obese
