Do you know your BMI?

Your BMI (body mass index) is a number, usually between 18-50, that expresses the relationship between a person’s height and weight. It is considered a good indicator of normal or excess weight, and of the links between overweight and disease. Generally, a BMI of 19-25 is considered normal. BMI’s below 19 are considered underweight, and BMI’s over 25 are considered overweight. A BMI over 40 is referred to as morbid obesity, and carries with it serious medical risks. Use the calculator on the right hand column to get your BMI.
