About The Body Mass Index
Your Body Mass Index is a fairly good indicator of general health. It compares your current weight with your height to see if you are within a healthy range. It's more scientific than looking in the mirror and prodding all your bulges.
A high B.M.I. indicates that you are overweight.
This Body Mass Index Calculator takes your height and weight, and gives you your B.M.I. It then suggests if you are underweight, a healthy weight or overweight - as well as suggesting what range is ideal for your height.
The BMI is a very general indicator. Before making any changes to your diet or lifestyle, you should consult a medical expert.
