Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI)
Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight.  

It can be calculated using pounds and inches:  BMI = (weight in pounds x 703) / (height in inches x height in inches).

Or you can use the calculator below:

Your BMI:

25 - 29.9 Overweight Increased
30 - 34.9 Obese High
