Check Your BMI & Health Status

Here is a ready for checking (BMI) list. In the first left column your height in centimeters and to the right of that column your body weight. The nos. 17,18.5, 20, 22, 25, 30, 35 and 40 denotes BMI. The BMI of 18.5 to 30 is the normal range. BMI above 30 is obesity and not good for health. BMI below 18.5 is underweight, it is also not good for health.

    I like checking my weight with BMI since the range is based on population average. Although I do think it has its shortcomings like not differentiating between women vs men. A good addition to checking your BMI is checking your body fat percentage.
