*Body Mass Index Calculator
Body mass index is a generally accurate indication of your weight status. It is a calculation based on your height and weight, and in most cases gives a good idea of whether you are under- or over-weight, or of course, just right. For very muscular people and children it will not be accurate (there are other calculations for these groups). You can use whichever units you're most comfortable with - height in feet and inches and weight in lbs, or height in cms and weight in kg, but don't mix up the two groups of measurements. Normal BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
