Body Mass Index (BMI)

By: Forouzan Bayat Nejad

 

The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a statistical measure of weight ranges. BMI is calculated by dividing your weight by your height.

BMI uses a mathematical formula that takes into account both a person's height and weight. BMI equals a person's weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared. It is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
