Height and weight: Body mass index (bmi) is calculated as weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of the person's height (in meters).

Is BMI reliable?: Hi erikka! body mass index (bmi) is only a measure of height & weight. As a result, a very muscular person may have the same BMI as an obese, overfat person - with very different health risks. Bmi also does not give information about dangerous disease-causing visceral belly fat. I prefer bioelectrical impedance analysis - gives a full body composition -fat, muscle, bone, hydration status.
