The SBMI — an index that has been developed four years ago especially for this calculator — serves for this purpose.

Calculate your BMI, correctly rated according to age and sex
Body mass index, or BMI, is one way a person can check if their weight is healthy or not. BMI takes both height and weight into consideration. BMI is not the only factor that affects this risk. Other tools for assessing whether a person has a healthy weight include waist-to-hip ratio, waist-to-height ratio, and body-fat percentage. However, BMI is a useful starting point. This page provides some tools for people to work out their BMI.
This table shows us that a woman who is 5 ft. She is considered obese BMI is 30 or more if she is closer to pounds or more. A man who is 5 ft.
Note that the calculator also computes the Ponderal Index in addition to BMI, both of which are discussed below in detail. BMI is a measurement of a person's leanness or corpulence based on their height and weight, and is intended to quantify tissue mass. It is widely used as a general indicator of whether a person has a healthy body weight for their height. Specifically, the value obtained from the calculation of BMI is used to categorize whether a person is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese depending on what range the value falls between. These ranges of BMI vary based on factors such as region and age, and are sometimes further divided into subcategories such as severely underweight or very severely obese.
