Calculating a Healthy Weight Range

Discover your Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index or (BMI) is an internationally recognised approach to make an initial assessment of how your weight compares with the general healthy weight range.

Your own BMI is calculated by the following formula

(BMI) = weight(kg) ÷ height(m)Squared.

While the formula for calculating BMI is consistent worldwide, the interpretation of this number can differ.

The data below represents the latest research on healthy weight ranges, and is specifically tailored for male weight distribution.

2. The above graph is suitable for Males over 18 and is particularly suited to Men between the ages of 20 to 60.
