In brief: 19-25

A normal BMI is between 19 and 25.
Remember, the BMI does not take into account body composition (muscle versus fat) nor lab values (blood sugar, cholesterol) or medical history (high blood pressure).

In brief: Not average

There is no average, as the average is unimportant.
What's important is what is healthy for you. "normal" is generally considered by be from about 19 to 25.
