What is BMI Calculator used for?
BMI is known as Body Mass Index. BMI is an quick and easy and inexpensive way to find out a person’s weight category (underweight, healthy weight, overweight, and obesity). You can check your weight category using the table below:
|BMI Value||Weight Category|
|18.5 to 24.9||Normal Weight|
|25.0 to 29.9||Overweight|
|30.0 to 34.9||Obesity Class I|
|35.0 to 39.9||Obesity Class II|
|Above 40||Obesity Class III|
Normal healthy weight is in the BMI value range of 18.5 to 24.9. If your BMI value falls within this range, then you are generally considered as healthy weight.
Do take note that BMI value does not diagnose the body fatness or health condition of an individual. BMI value provides a hint of a person’s weight and a healthcare provider can decide to perform further assessments.
