Weight Management Program: BMI Calculator

The most common method of measuring excess body fat is using the Body Mass Index, or BMI calculator.

We’ve included a calculator below to help you determine your own BMI.

What your BMI result means

Less than 18.5Underweight
18.5 to 24.9Considered healthy and low-risk
25 to 29.9Overweight, considered moderate-risk
30 to 34.9Obese I, considered high-risk
35 to 39.9Obese II, very high-risk
40 and overMorbidly Obese, extremely high-risk

For both men and women, a normal BMI is between 20 and 25. Individuals with a BMI of 25-29 are considered overweight. Those with a BMI of 30 or higher are considered obese. This calculation is not without its limitations, but can give you a general idea of your condition.
