• Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a measurement used to determine whether your weight is healthy according to your height. Age is never taken into consideration. BMI values are divided into four categories for adults: underweight (values less than 18.5), normal (18.5 to 24.9), overweight (25 to 29.9), and obese (over 30).
• According to the CDC, higher BMI values may indicate an increased risk for diseases and conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease. To calculate your BMI, you will need your height in inches and your weight in pounds.
• 1/ Multiply your weight in pounds by 703. As an example, take a person who is 65 inches tall and weighs 130 pounds. 130 * 703 = 91,390.
• 2/ Square your height in inches. Continuing the example, 65 x 65 = 4225.
• 3/ Divide the result from step 1 by the height squared to get BMI. Finishing the example: BMI = 91,310 / 4225 = 21.6, within normal range.
• Now, interpret your BMI as follows:
• Underweight (values less than 18.5),
• Normal weight (18.5 to 24.9),
• Overweight (25 to 29.9)
• Obese (over 30).
