• Your body mass index (BMI) helps you answer the question, “How do I Know if I am Attaining a Healthy Weight ?&quot; If you're looking to measure the overall wellness of your body, weighing yourself is a natural first step. However, in just five additional steps -- following this -- you'll arrive at your BMI, an even more effective screening tool. The formula is straightforward: weight divided by height squared. It helps you determine whether you're underweight, overweight, obese or right on target.
• 1) Weigh yourself on a bathroom scale to determine your weight in pounds.
• 2) Use a calculator to multiply your weight by 703 (this converts your weight to the metric system). Write down the result.
• 3) Measure your height in inches with a yardstick or tape measure.
• 4) Square your height; in other words, multiply it by itself. (For example, if you're 72 inches tall, you'd multiply 72 by 72). Record the result.
• 5) Divide the number arrived at in Step 2 by the number arrived at in Step 4. The answer is your BMI.
• 6) Compare your BMI to the following table:
• --If your BMI is below 18.5, you're underweight.
• --If it's between 18.5 and 24.9, your weight is considered normal.
• --If it's between 25.0 and 29.9, you're overweight for your height.
• --If it's over 30.0, you're at risk for obesity.
