BMI calculator (body mass index calculator) is a very useful tool that used in body fat determination as well as monitoring of weight status among individuals. With its help one can keep track of his or her weight loss or gain as well as interpret the results whether he or she is perceived to be more likely to develop obesity or any other weight problems. Therefore, early detection of any weight issue could eventuallylead to a much earlier treatment.

BMI Calculation

Body mass index is computed by obtaining the body weight in kilos/pounds and then multiplying it to a standard number which is 703. The product is then divided by height in metres/inches. Body mass index is used in interpreting whether any particular person is overweight or underweight.


WHR (waist to hip ratio) = indicator of health

The WHR has been used as an indicator or measure of the health of a person, and the risk of developing serious health conditions. Research shows that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies who carry more weight around the hips.

WHR is used as a measurement of obesity, which in turn is a possible indicator of other more serious health conditions.

WHO STEPS states that abdominal obesity is defined as a waist-hip ratio above 0.90 for males and above 0.85 for females, or a body mass index (BMI) above 30.0. The National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) states that women with waist-hip ratios of more than 0.8, and men with more than 1.0, are at increased health risk because of their fat distribution.
