Body Mass Index Chart

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a height-weight formula that gauges total body fat and assesses weight-related health risks. A BMI of 30 and higher is considered obese. The higher the BMI, the greater the risk of developing additional health problems.

To find your Body Mass Index using the BMI chart, below:

1. Find your height in inches, in left-hand column.
2. Look across the row for your weight in pounds.
3. Then look up your BMI in the top column.
