Body mass index (BMI) = weight(kg) / height(m)2

Our ideal weight range charts are based on body mass index, modified to take into account whether you are male or female.
For adults, BMI is a guide to measuring whether you're a healthy weight for your height. Note that it is not so accurate for muscled athletes, or very frail people. Nor is it a suitable guide for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
