BMI Body Mass Index Calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement based on height and weight as it relates to body fat, and can be used to determine how much risk a person has of developing certain health problems because of his or her weight. As a point of reference, someone with a BMI of 27 is approximately 20 percent overweight. The higher the BMI, the greater the risk a person has to develop additional health problems.

BMI Result Category Comments
Under 18.5 Underweight This result is considered underweight. Underweight is associated with increased health problems, including osteoporosis (bone wasting disease) and in women irregular menstrual periods, and infertility.
18.5 to 24.9 Healthy Weight This is within the healthy weight range. You are at a much lower risk for other health problems.
25 to 29 Overweight Within this range or higher is considered overweight. Overweight is associated with increased health problems.
Above 30 Obese At or above this range is considered obese. Obesity is associated with a high risk for health problems. A BMI above 40 is considered severely obese, and is associated with a very high risk of health problems associated with excess weight.

Exceptions to a high BMI score include competitive athletes and body builders, whose BMI is high due to increased muscle mass, and women who are pregnant or lactating. The BMI is also not intended for use in measuring growing children or elderly individuals.
