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, and can prove an inaccurate guide in some situations. For example, those with a lot of muscle will often score overweight on the index, but are actually extremely healthy. Your weight is just one factor that makes up your general health, so you can't view it in isolation.
Before making any significant changes to your diet or lifestyle, you should consult a medical expert.
