Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator

BMI measures a person's leanness or corpulence based on their height and weight and is intended to quantify tissue mass. It is widely used as a general indicator of whether a person has a healthy body weight. Specifically, the value obtained from the BMI calculator is used to categorise whether a person is underweight, average weight, overweight, or obese, depending on what value falls between the ranges. Knowing that your body weight and fat fall in the healthy range or are unbalanced helps you make many informed decisions like devoting time to exercise, tweaking your diet as per your body needs, or investing in health insurance for your current lifestyle. Explore different types of health insurance.

 

BMI expresses the relationship between your height and weight as a single number that is not dependent on frame size. Although the origin of the BMI is over 200 years old, it is relatively new as a health measure. Being overweight or underweight can have significant health effects. While BMI is a perfect measure of healthy body weight, it is a helpful indicator of whether any additional testing or action is required.

BMI calculator is a great tool that could give you insight into where you are in your current fitness journey and the pressing concerns relating to your health where you need to focus or make changes to lead a healthy life.  An alarming BMI ratio is also an indicator of other underlying chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, blood pressure, kidney disorders, stroke, cancer, and etc.

Suppose your BMI ratio falls under the obese range. In that case, it calls for follow-ups and medical investigations like medical check-ups for a comprehensive understanding of your current health status.  You need to start eating healthy and begin changes in your routine, including daily workouts in your way for better weight management.

How does this tool help me?

It's important to remember that your BMI score is not a be-all, end-all measurement, as BMI doesn't take in to account whether your weight is from lean muscle mass, or fat. Meaning that you could potentially lose a great deal of fat and still be classified as overweight, especially if you're an athlete or bodybuilder. So use BMI as a starting point, but for true measurements, getting your body fat percentage tested is the better approach.
