Let’s unpack it below!

What is BMI?

BMI stands for Body Mass Index.
It is a useful tool to assess if our weight is within a healthy range based on our height.
While it provides a general guideline, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t account for individual variations like muscle mass, bone density, or overall body composition.

What is my BMI?

To work out your BMI take your weight and divide it by your height in meters squared. Or use our BMI calculator.

BMI = kg/m2

Example: If a person weighs 65 kg and the person’s height is 165 cm (1.65 m), the BMI is calculated as 65 ÷ (1.65)2 = 23.87 kg/m2, which means that the person has a BMI of 23.87 kg/m2 and is considered to have a healthy weight.

What do my results mean?

Depending on your results, you will fall into 1 of 4 categories:

1. Underweight

A BMI below 18.5 is considered underweight.
If you fall into this category, it’s crucial to focus on gaining weight in a healthy manner. Consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian to develop a personalised plan.
