Calculate Your BMI

First of all, when we say BMI, what are we talking about? We are talking about your "Body Mass Index". Why is it important to calculate it and why do physicians use it? Doctors use body mass index to assess patients because the index is simple, it correlates to fatness, and it applies to both men and women. This index is a quick, inexpensive and accurate method to determine health risk as it relates to your body weight and height.


Since the two fashion models died from anorexia, BMI is quickly becoming an important indicator of health. A body mass index of 19 to 24.9 is considered a healthy weight; 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight; 30 to 39.9 obese and 40 very obese. A body mass index of less than 19.0 is considered unsafe and may indicate malnourishment.

The following tables were obtained from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institute of Health (NIH). To make your calculation, find your height on the left hand side of the chart and then follow along to the right to find your weight. Look at the number at the top of the column where you found your weight and you will see your calculated body mass index. How's it look? Are you satisfied with your BMI?
