Body Mass Index Chart

A Healthy Weight Compass

Body Mass Index chart guidelines (BMI) provide an extremely effective starting point for any weight loss fitness program. You can consider it a compass for a healthy weight.

The same formula assists medical practitioners with red flagging patients who will be at higher risk to health problems and other risk factors associated with obesity.


The body mass index calculation takes your weight and divides it by your height, BMI= kilograms/meters squared, producing a number that places you in a researched and charted range. From here you get a sense of where your BMI falls relative to others.

BMI Categories:
  • Underweight = <18.5
  • Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
  • Overweight = 25-29.9
  • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Once you have a BMI figure, whether by using a calculator or body mass index chart, you have an excellent starting point to build a personal plan, for weight loss, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle.
