BMI - Body Mass Index

BMI measures your height/weight ratio. It is your weight in kilograms divided by the square of your height in meters.

BMI = Weight/(Height * Height) where Weight & Height measured in SI system

For instance, if your height is 1.70 meters, the divisor of the calculation will be (1.70 * 1.70) = 2.89. If you weigh 64.0 kilograms, then your BMI is 22.14 (64.0 / 2.89).

Significance of BMI Values is as follows.

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 - 24.9 Normal
25.0 - 29.9 Overweight
30.0 - 34.9 Obese
35.0 - 39.9 Obese
40 or greater Extremely Obese

Above all, don’t Worry, Be Happy. It’s unhealthy to have anxiety over a less-than-perfect body image. If BMI description of your body seems wrong for you, just trust your own judgment.

A healthy mental attitude is just as important as physical fitness
