Test Your Body Composition

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on a person’s height and weight. It applies to men and women between the ages of 18 and 65, and helps to indicate whether you are overweight, obese, underweight or average. 

BMI Categories*

  • Underweight               Less than 18.5

  • Average                     18.5-24.9

  • Overweight                25-29.9

  • Obesity                       BMI of 30 or greater

How to Calculate Your BMI


The standard formula for calculating BMI is: Weight in pounds x 703 / [Height in inches x Height in inches]

To calculate your BMI (you will need a calculator for this):

  • Write down your weight (in pounds)

  • Multiply it by 703

  • Then divide the result by your height (in inches)

  • Again divide the result by your height (in inches)

 

BMI is one of the many ways of assessing your weight. If you have any issues or concerns about your weight, please discuss them with us or your physician.
