Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI Formula
Is BMI accurate?

Body Mass Index (BMI)

The best way to figure out how much you should weigh is not by simply looking at a height and weight chart. It involves taking into account the amount of bone, muscle, and fat in your body. The critical measure is how much fat you have. BMI (body mass index) indicates your body's fat content. The body mass index (BMI) is a reliable indicator of the amount of fat in your body. Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet, a Belgian mathematician, developed the BMI in 1832.

BMI Formula

BMI is the weight in kilograms divided by the height in meters squared in the metric system. An alternative calculation formula can be used because height is often measured in centimeters (in centimeters). This involves dividing the weight of kilograms by the height squared in centimeters and multiplying that result by 10,000.
weight (kg) / [height (m)]^2
[weight (kg) / height (cm) / height (cm)] x 10,000
You can use the guide below as a rough estimate of your health status:
BMI Weight Status
Below 18.5
18.5 - 24.9 Healthy
25.0 - 29.9 Overweight
30.0 and above Obese

Is BMI accurate?

While some may be concerned that BMI does not accurately indicate whether someone is healthy, the majority of studies show that people's chances of getting chronic disease and death increase if they have a BMI of 18.5 or higher ("underweight") or 30.0 or more ("obese").
BMI doesn't consider other aspects of your health like age, sex, and fat mass. Muscle mass depends on race, genetics, or medical history. In addition, it has been shown that using it solely as a predictor for health can increase weight biases and inequalities.
