Your Body Mass Index or BMI is based on your height and weight. It is calculated as weight (in kilograms) divided by height squared (in meters). It is used to determine if a person is underweight, at a healthy weight, overweight or obese. While BMI is accurate for most people, it can be miscalculated in people who are muscular or athletic or have poor nutrition. Note: This BMI calculation is only accurate in adults.
BMI is directly related to body fat. The relation between fatness and BMI changes depending on age and gender. Women are more likely to have a higher percentage of body fat than men for the same BMI. Also, older adults usually have more body fat than younger adults with the same BMI.
