Body Mass Index (BMI) is relatively easy to calculate. To calculate, simply divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches squared, then multiple by 703.
Many healthcare practitioners use BMI as a means of estimating your percent body fat and from that your risk of developing certain diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.
Disease Risk Relative to Normal Weight
Overweight 25.0-29.9 Increased
Obesity I 30.0-34.9 High
Obesity II 35.0-39.9 Very High
Extreme Obesity 40+ Extremely High
