The BMI or Body Mass Index is a standard measurement to help you understand where you lie on the weight spectrum. Let our BMI calculator help you understand if you're at a healthy weight for your height, overweight, or underweight. The formula our BMI tool uses takes into account your sex, age, weight, and height to calculate the range in which you fall.
What are the Drawbacks of Using a Body Mass Index Calculator?
While our Body Mass Index Calculator provides your current weight range and a goal weight to aim for, there are definitely some drawbacks to only using your BMI to determine your health. Because BMI doesn't take into account differential weight for fat or muscle mass, it's possible you could have high percentage of muscle mass, a high BMI, but not be at increased risk for disease. Therefore, if you are an athlete, you may want to also use your body fat percentage measurement for a better idea of your fitness.
