What Is Your BMI

BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It's a way to calculate your weight in comparison to your height. It's not a perfect measure but it is one way to know if you are at a healthy body weight or at an inefficient body weight. Even if you were quite large but all muscle, your heart still has to pump that much harder for all that mass.

Use this calculator and chart below to gauge where you are and hopefully use it as of your health or a wake up call for action.

18.5 or less Underweight
18.5 to 24.99 Normal Weight
25 to 29.99 Overweight
30 to 34.99 Obesity (Class 1)
35 to 39.99 Obesity (Class 2)
40 or greater Morbid Obesity
