BMI Calculator



BMI (Body Mass Index) is a math formula using your weight and height to establish a numeric value, which helps to gauge your risk for weight related health problems. Higher BMI numbers are related to increased chances of cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and certain kinds of cancers. Many health organizations consider a BMI of 20 - 24 to be optimal.

    I’m 5’8″ 235 pounds @ 35 years old. I’m a male that has worked construction all my life, I was 135lbs in grade 9 and 170 in Grade 12. I joined the work force and put on 20 pounds of adult muscle then 10 pounds of adult not muscle. when I turned 30 years old I gained another 30 pounds after that, this puts me on the BMI as Very High Risk? but I need to be my Grade 8 weight to be normal, how does that work?

    BMI is very flawed from what I can tell, why don’t they have a way to measure your bone density when figuring this out.

    thanks,
