For those who do not know, BMI is an acronym for Body Mass Index. Your body mass index is a measurement tool that compares your height to your weight and gives you an indication of whether you are overweight, underweight, or at a healthy weight for your height.

Here is the formula:
BMI = weight in pounds (lbs) / (height in inches) X (height in inches) X 703

or

BMI = weight in kilograms / (height in meters) X (height in meters)


Here are the materials you will need to calculate your BMI
Bathroom scale, yardstick, pencil, paper, calculator

1) weigh yourself
2) measure height in inches with yardstick
3) use pencil, paper, and calculator to perform BMI calculation
4) take height in inches and square the number
5) divide weight in pounds by second figure (height in inches squared)
6) multiply answer by 703


If you BMI is...

less than 18.5 you are underweight
between 18.6 & 24.9 healthy
between 25 & 29.9 overweight
greater than 30 obesity

You are more than welcome, naturalblaze. I always make sure that I calculate my BMI every 3-4 months to make sure that I stay within a healthy proximity of weight in my age group.

Hey your formula for calculating BMI is correct.

BMI over 30 is obese, there is a another category to be precise. BMI > 40 is "Morbidly Obese" these guys are high risk individuals for heart disease.
