Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of a person's weight taking into account their height. BMI provides a significantly more accurate representation of body fat content than simply measuring a person's weight. The calculation for BMI is weight in kilos divided by height in metres squared.
The breakdown of BMI categories based on the World Health Organization are:
|18 - 25||Healthy Weight|
|26 - 30||Pre - obesity|
|31 - 34||Obesity Class i|
|35 - 39||Obesity class ii|
|under 40||Obesity class iii|
