Body Mass Calculator, A Guide For Weight Loss

healthy coupleThis article will help you determine and measure your body mass index, bmi using a body mass calculator. This body mass index chart can be used by female, male, and children.

How physically healthy a person is can be measured by how much he or she weighs compared to his or her height. 

Weight refers to how heavy a person is, while height measures how tall he or she is. There are certain weight frames that should correlate with the person’s height.

The following are a couple of examples of this: A woman who is five feet tall, whose frame is of medium build, should have a weight that falls between 103 pounds and 115 pounds in order to be deemed physically healthy.

A man who is five feet and eight inches tall, whose frame is large, can be considered healthy if his weight falls between 144 pounds and 163 pounds.

If a person weighs below the average weight recommended for his or her height, then they are thought to be underweight.

And, in turn, if a person weighs above the average weight recommended for his or her height, then they are thought to be overweight. Being both underweight and overweight are considered to be unhealthy.

In order to tell how much extra body fat you may be carrying, you can tell by your Body Mass Index, or BMI.

measuring body fatThis measurement is thought to be a very accurate indicator. If you have never heard of Body Mass Index before, then you should know that it is the mathematical way to find out what your ratio of weight to height is. It is often linked to your body’s composition, also known as body fat percentage, and also with your health risk index.

As long as you know your true height and weight, you can quickly and easily calculate your own Body Mass Index. In order to find your body mass index, multiply your weight in pounds by 700. Then, take that answer and divide it by your height in inches squared.

An example is as follows. A person weighing 176 pounds who is 63 inches tall will have a Body Mass Index of 31.1. Anyone with a Body Mass Index that falls between 25.1 and 29.9 is thought to be overweight. And, anyone with a Body Mass Index that calculates to be 30 or above is thought to be obese. Therefore, in the above example, the person would be considered obese.

The higher the Body Mass Index total ends up being when calculated, the higher the risk that that person can one day develop a serious disease or one or more of many other serious ailments.

Body Mass Index BMI Calculator
If you’ve calculated your Body Mass Index, but you aren’t sure where you fall on the BMI Chart, then you may find the following helpful.

If your BMI is under 19, then you are considered underweight.
If your BMI falls between 20 and 25, then you are in a normal, or healthy range.
If your BMI falls between 26 and 30, then you are considered overweight.
If your BMI is over 30, then you are considered obese.
