Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)

Use this Standard BMI Calculator, provided by the National Institutes of Health (Heart, Lung & Blood Institute), to calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI).  The BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to adult men and women.  It measures whether you are over-weight.

The BMI Categories are:

  • Underweight = <18.5
  • Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
  • Overweight = 25–29.9
  • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Just enter your height and weight using standard or metric measures, select “Compute BMI,” and your BMI appears.

Take this first step to determine whether your weight is normal, underweight, overweight, or considered obese. Then you can take steps to alter your diet and exercise, as necessary, to reach a healthy weight. This is the first step to prevent heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and so many other serious ailments.

Maintaining a healthy weight measured by your BMI, eating a proper diet with five fruits and vegetables a day, getting enough exercise (more than 150 minutes per week), and avoiding smoking may be the most important measures you can take to stay healthy and prevent disease.
