This calculator computes the body mass index and rates it appropriately for men, women, children, juveniles and seniors. The SBMI – an index that has been developed four years ago especially for this calculator – serves for this purpose. It is based on the results of the most comprehensive study* published so far on the BMI and its associated health risks.
Body Mass Index is a simple calculation using a person’s height and weight. The formula is BMI = kg/m2 where kg is a person’s weight in kilograms and m2 is their height in meters squared. A BMI of 25.0 or more is overweight, while the healthy range is 18.5 to 24.9. BMI applies to most adults 18-65 years
If your BMI is between 18.5-24.9: Your BMI is considered normal. This healthy weight helps reduce your risk of serious health conditions and means you’re close to your fitness goals. If your BMI is between 25-29.9: Your BMI is considered overweight.
Enter your height in inches. For example if you are 5’7″, you would enter 67 inches or if you are 5’8″, you would enter 68 inches.
