Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI)

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a height/weight ratio that applies to both men and women. It is calculated by dividing weight in kilograms by height in meters squared. This Healing Heart BMI calculator uses pounds, feet and inches and converts them to metric.

The medical profession is gradually adopting BMI instead of old weight/height tables.
An index of 21 is ideal, 25 or more is clinically overweight and over 30 is considered obese.

Enter your height in feet:
                   and inches:  (Don't leave blank, use zero if needed)

Enter your weight in pounds:  Use decimals for fractions (.5 =½)
