BMI or Body mass index is measure
of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult
men and women. Calculating the BMI is one of the best methods for
population assessment of overweight and obesity. The only information
required to calculate a person's BMI are height, weight, and the
BMI chart. Any person with a BMI over 25 would be classified as
overweight. In the BMI chart given below, the first row indicates
your health status and the second row lists BMI values. The first
column in the BMI chart lists your height and the corresponding
columns list the respective weights. First go to the row with your
height in first column, then move to the right towards your weight.
Once you have found the cell where your height and weight match,
look at the second row (from top) of the BMI chart to find your
Body mass index.
