What is Body Mass Index (BMI) and how is it calculated?

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a mathematical formula used to measure your height/weight ratio. BMI equals a person’s weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared (BMI = kg/m2).

BMI can be a useful tool for estimating overall body fat in adult men and women. It is not an appropriate tool for determining body fat in children.
