BMI Chart - Body Mass Index Chart

BMI chart for adult men and women

BMI or Body mass index is measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women. Calculating the BMI is one of the best methods for population assessment of overweight and obesity. The only information required to calculate a person's BMI are height, weight, and the BMI chart.

Any person with a BMI over 25 would be classified as overweight. In the BMI chart given below, the first row indicates your health status and the second row lists BMI values. The first column in the BMI chart lists your height and the corresponding columns list the respective weights.

First go to the row with your height in first column, then move to the right towards your weight. Once you have found the cell where your height and weight match, look at the second row (from top) of the BMI chart to find your Body mass index.
