What is BMI?

How to calculate BMI?

The body mass index (BMI) is a statistic developed by Adolphe Quetelet in the 1900’s for evaluating body mass. It is not related to gender and age. It uses the same formula for men as for women and children.

Bodyweight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared
BMI = x KG / (y M * y M)

BMI Categories

Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
