A BMI calculator uses your height and weight to indirectly measure your total body fat. Both adult men and women can use the same BMI calculator.
It’s a tool that can help you and your physician determine if your weight is healthy or putting you at risk for disease or even death.
On this page, you can use a free online BMI calculator from the CDC.
The CDC is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a U.S. agency under the Department of Health and Human Services. The CDC tries to protect public health.
This calculator will provide you with your BMI and the corresponding BMI weight status category (underweight, normal, overweight or obese).
You can calculate your BMI using either the English system or the metric system. With the English system, you input your height in feet and inches and your weight in pounds. With the metric system, you input your height in meters and your weight in kilograms.
This BMI calculator is for adults who are at least 20 years old…
As always, you’ll need to consult your physician to determine exactly what your BMI means for your health and risk of disease.
