BMI Calculator


BMI Test:

Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated based upon your height and weight.  BMI is often used to get a rough indicator of an individual’s “body fat.”

BMI is not a perfect science since lean muscle tends to weigh more than fat.  As a result, individuals with a higher percentage of muscle can have BMI numbers that are viewed as unhealthy, even though they may be perfectly healthy.

Similarly, individuals with very little muscle mass may have healthy BMI numbers even though they may actually not be in the best shape.

As a result, BMI should only be used to get a rough idea of where you are at.
