The Complete Herbal Guide / (BMI) Body Mass Index Calculator

Calculate Your Body Mass Index (BMI)

This BMI Calculator for men and women is easy to use and gives you information about your body mass index. Your body mass index or BMI is a measurement that uses both your weight and your height. There are different 4 weight categories – underweight, healthy, overweight, and obese.  It can also suggest your risk for chronic disease.

BMI table for adults

This is the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommended body weight based on BMI values for adults. It is used for both men and women, age 18 or older. The Body mass chart for adults and the body mass chart for children are different. This is because body mass index is accounted for differently based on age and growth spurts. Here is the Body Mass Index Chart for women and for men that are 18 and older:

BMI table for children

The BMI categorization for children under 18 is unique. There is a different methodology for minors when it comes to calculating Body Mass Index. This is due to children’s growth and metabolism changes as they get older. The BMI categorization for children and teens between age 2 and 18 can be seen in the table that is below:
