Body Mass Index

Many women, as well as men, struggle with their weight and are unsure what an ideal weight is relatively to their height. By using this calculator, one can view an approximate estimate of their BMI showing whether they are underweight, average or overweight. Note, this calculator is an estimate as it only considers the height of one. For an exact measure, one must visit the doctor/specialist for a more precise calculation (online calculations don’t distinguish the ratio between fat and muscle).

One can calculate this:
1. Online at http://www.bmi-calculator.net

2. By using the formula:

ENGLISH BMI FORMULA
BMI = ( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703
METRIC BMI FORMULA
BMI = ( Weight in Kilograms / ( Height in Meters x Height in Meters ) )
