bmi calculator

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is one of many screening tools that can be used to assess an individual's total bodyweight. BMI is calculated by comparing the measurements of your weight and height.

Use the BMI calculator to determine if your bodyweight falls into an appropriate range in relation to your height. To find your results, look for the output value below:

Weight (lbs)
Height (feet)
Height (inches)

Body Mass Index (BMI) Weight (lbs)
Below 18.5 Underweight
18.5 - 24.9 Normal
25 - 29.9 Overweight
30+ Obese

* Note: Although this screening tool is generally reliable, it must be understood that it has limits as well. The BMI value will overestimate bodyweight in athletes and others who have muscular builds, and it will underestimate bodyweight in older persons and others who have lost muscle mass.
