a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height, used to estimate if a person is underweight or overweight. BMI units are defined as \mathrm{kg}/\mathrm{m}^2 ≈ \mathrm{703*lb}/\mathrm{in}^2
(plural body mass indices) an approximate measure of whether someone is over- or underweight, calculated by dividing their weight in kilograms by the square of their height in metres
Also called BMI It is equal to your weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of your height (in meters) You can figure out your BMI using the BMI Calculator at this website
Body mass index (BMI) is a measurement used to determine someone's risk for future health problems The BMI is calculated using height and weight and applies to both men and women equally
A measure of body weight relative to height BMI can be used to determine if people are at a healthy weight, overweight, or obese A body mass index (BMI) of 18 5 up to 25 refers to a healthy weight, a BMI of 25 up to 30 refers to overweight and a BMI of 30 or higher refers to obese --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A measurement of the relative percentages of fat and muscle mass in the human body, in which weight in kilograms is divided by height in meters and the result used as an index of obesity
Anthropometric measure, defined as weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in metres This measure correlates closely with body density and thickness (see Overweight)
One of the anthropometric measures of body mass; it has the highest correlation with skinfold thickness or body density The standard formula for calculating is (Weight in Kilograms) / (Height in Meters Squared)
Measure of an individual's attained growth, measured as the body weight (kg) divided by the square of the height (meters) BMI is an indirect measure of lean body mass and body fat mass
= Formerly people judged their weight against the insurance company Ideal Body Weight chart This chart was drawn up to tell people what weights were considered ideal (where you lived the longest) and which were not The Body Mass Index (BMI) is used by researchers to give a convenient and fairly accurate idea of the fat load on the body It is found by dividing the height in meters by the weight in kilograms Click here for a chart to see your BMI
A mathematical formula to assess relative body weight The measure correlates highly with body fat Calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in meters (kg/m2)
A measurement of body fat content It is found by dividing an individuals weight in kilograms by their height in meters squared (weight in kg/height2 in meters)
This index mathematically relates height and weight for a result that is a good indicator of body fat It is a better predictor of health risk than weight alone This formula is most accurate for adults other than body builders, competitive athletes, and pregnant or breastfeeding women BMI is determined by calculating the weight in kilograms divided by the height in meters squared BMI = (weight in kilograms) / (height in meters)
A measure of body weight relative to height BMI can be used to determine if people are at a healthy weight, overweight, or obese To figure out BMI, use the following formula
