BMI Table

Body Mass Index (BMI) is an indicator of optimal weight for health. Find the intersection of your weight and height — this is your BMI. Adults with a BMI between 19 and 24 have less risk for illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes than individuals with a BMI between 25 and 29. A BMI greater than 30 indicates greatest risk for obesity-related diseases.
