What is your BMI?

Your BMI or Body Mass Index is a measurement of body fat based on your height and weight. This health calculation applies to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 years.

BMI can be used to indicate if you are overweight, obese, underweight or normal. A healthy BMI score is between 20 and 25. A score below 20 indicates that you may be underweight; a value above 25 indicates that you may be overweight.

You can calculate your BMI by using the BMI Calculator and comparing your results with the BMI Chart.

What does the Body Mass Index Chart say about you?

Your BMI is a useful tool to estimate a healthy body weight based on your height. However, due to the wide variety of body types, the distribution of muscle and bone mass, etc., it is not appropriate to use this as the only or final indication for diagnosis. This also implies that your BMI does not actually “measure” your percentage of body fat.

Due to its ease of measurement and calculation, the BMI index is the most widely used diagnostic indicator to identify a person’s optimal weight depending on their height. Your BMI “number” will inform you if you are underweight, of normal weight, overweight, or obese.

MealPro would like you to note that there are many ways to address your body weight. This is one of the many possibilities - if you have any concerns about your weight, please get a detailed assessment from your physician who unlike this BMI calculator can address you very specific situation.

Improve your BMI Score

To improve your bmi you can use the calorie calculator, which gives you your caloric intake you need to consume per day to reach your nutrition goal. The calorie calculator works by taking your BMR or Basal Metabolic Rate, which is a measurement of how many calories you burn to maintain your minimal body functions (e.g. breathing), then adds the harris benedict equation, which is the caloric need for activity to give you how many calories you need to consume each day to lose, maintain, or gain weight to improve your BMI score.
