Height and Weight Test (Body Mass Index)

Many people think it is very difficult to check whether you are healthy or not. Some think you have to go to the doctor to take some tests to see if you are doing fine or not. But here are a few simple steps you can do at home with the minimal amount of tools to figure out if you are living the healthy life or living the life which would lead you to earlier morbidity.

* BMI Test

BMI = weight (kg)/ height[squared] (meters)
e.g. 65kg/ 1.80 m squared = 20.06

or check an online BMI test

Results:

Underweight = > 19
Healthy weight = 20 - 24.99
Overweight = 25 - 29.99
Obese = 30 <

The BMI test is a test that measures your body fat based on height and weight. It is not advisable to be used in children and adolescents due to constant growth, and body composition which is different to that of an adult. The BMI test is just a standard test, it does not mean if you are a body builder you carry a lot of fat because the results show you weigh too much for your height, it is just because muscles are heavy.
