BMI is used as a screening tool to identify potential health risks related to weight concerns.

The body mass index calculation uses a person's weight and height.

It will show results into one of four classes;
   
    Under 18.5 = Underweight
    Between 18.5 - 24.9 = Normal
    Between 25 -  30 = Overweight
    Over 30 = Obese

These classes are further broken down into categories. To see this breakdown, scroll down the page.



In addition to this free online BMI Calculator, check out the BMR calculator as well.

Body Mass Index Categories

The four classes help indicate where you stand with your weight compared to your height.

This is a good indication if there are potential health issues due to your weight.

The four classes have the following health risks

Class

BMI

Health Risk

Underweight < 18.5 Moderate
Normal 18.5 - 24.9 Minimal
Overweight 25 - 30 Moderate
Obese > 30 High

Depending on what category you are at within a class, this risk could go up. For instance, if your BMI is under 16, this would be in the severe underweight class. This could increase any health risks due to the low body weight.

This is true for those in the obese class. If they had a BMI of over 40, this puts them in the Obese III category, increasing health related issues.
