Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on a person’s weight and height and it can show if you are underweight, healthy, overweight or obese.

How to use the BMI table:

  • Find your height in the left column.
  • Move across in the same row to the number closest to your weight.
  • The number at the top of that column is your BMI. Compare your BMI with the category in the table below the BMI table..

BMI Table – centimeters/kilograms
