To determine your body mass index (BMI) and whether you are a healthy weight, use BMI Healthy Weight Calculator. Alternately, you can use it to calculate your child’s BMI.
Calculate Your BMI Right On Spot
Your BMI is......
|less than 18.5:||Underweight|
|18.5 - 24.9:||Normal weight|
|25 - 29.9:||Overweight|
|30 - 34.9:||Class I Obese|
|35 - 39.9:||Class II Obese|

Your BMI can indicate if you are overweight but not whether you are overweight in terms of fat.
The BMI is unable to distinguish between extra fat, muscle, or bone.
Age, gender, or muscle mass are not taken into account by the adult BMI.

People who lose muscle as they age may fall into the “healthy weight” range despite carrying excess fat. Very muscular adults and athletes may be classified as “overweight” or “obese” despite having minimal body fat.
A woman’s BMI result will also be impacted by pregnancy. As you gain weight, your BMI will rise. When figuring out your BMI, utilise your pre-pregnancy weight.
In spite of these drawbacks, calculating someone’s BMI is a simple and practical approach to determine their weight.
Disorders of eating
The results of the BMI Healthy Weight Calculator do not apply if you have an eating disorder. Please consult a doctor for more guidance.
