BMI and your health
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement used to classify a person’s weight into broad categories such as a healthy weight range, overweight or obese. It compares a person’s weight to their height using the following formula:
weight (kg) / [height (m)]2
BMI is the most common way of measuring whether a person is overweight or obese. The risk of developing serious health consequences increases progressively as BMI increases.
To find out your BMI, please enter your height and weight details into the BMI Calculator. The results help you determine whether you should be taking action toward a healthier lifestyle.
