BMI Calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a ratio of height and weight. For the average adult BMI can relate closely to overall health and an estimation of body composition. Overweight and Obese categories indicate individuals with an excess of fatty tissue. This excess fat can increase risk for Cardiovascular Disease, Heart Attack, and Stroke.

Children, Athletes, and Geriatric populations should be aware that BMI for these groups require more in depth interpretation.

BMI Categories:
  • Underweight =< 18.5
  • Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
  • Overweight = 25-29.9
  • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
