Body Mass Index For Adults
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a numeric value calculated from your weight in relationship to your height. Your BMI is a good indicator of healthy or unhealthy weights for adult men and women. BMI’s of 25 or higher indicate people who are more likely to develop heart disease and the possibility of strokes, even if they don’t have any other health risk factors.

The Body Mass Index (BMI) results will indicate if you are in the normal range based on your height and weight. Health professionals recommend that your BMI should be between 19.5 and 24.9. You may be an athlete with a low body fat percentage and your BMI may be in the 27 to 29 range.

The healthy body weight calculator accounts for pregnancy, nursing, the endurance of strenuous activity (athlete or body builder), children under 18 years of age or people under 5 feet or over 7 feet tall.

Lean Body Mass (LBM) is an estimate that considers height, weight, and gender coupled with waist, neck, and hip sizes to find out how much you weigh without body fat. The LBM is basically the weight of your bones, organs, and muscles. This is a critical number to know when trying to lose or gain weight. Your LBM can help you make an accurate gauge of how your training is working since you will be able to determine how much muscle you need to gain in order to lose fat.

Women within the 0.7 range are less susceptible to major disease such as ovarian cancers, cardiovascular disorders and diabetes and have higher levels of estrogen. Men with WHR in the 0.9 range have been shown to be less prone to testicular and prostate cancer.
