BMI Calculator

Body Mass Index (BMI) is used to determine if an adult has an unhealthy amount of body weight. The downside to this calculation is that it does not distinguish muscle weight from fat weight. This can cause an overestimation of body fat for athletes and body builders who have developed a lot of lean muscle mass. It can also underestimate the amount of body fat for older individuals who have lost muscle mass with aging. This calculation is a good indicator for the average adult.

BMI CATEGORIES
Underweight = <18.5
Normal Weight = 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obese = 30 or higher
