Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a popular device for establishing whether ones weight is healthy or not.

The basic indicators are:

  • BMI less than 18.5 is underweight.

  • BMI between 18.5 and 25 is healthy.

  • BMI between 25 and 30 is overweight.

  • BMI over 30 is obese.

The formula for calculating BMI is BMI = k/m2 (that is, kilos divided by meters squared) but if, like me, you are used to thinking in pounds and feet or don't want to have to do the mathematics, below is a table to help you.
