BMI Calculator for Men and Women


A basic BMI calculator for men and women calculates BMI the same for both genders.  If it also calculates lean body mass in addition to calculating BMI, male or female needs to be entered to allow for the gender difference. 

To calculate your BMI using the BMI calculator below you have three options as follows:


Enter weight in pounds and height in feet and inches, then click calculate BMI.
Enter weight in pounds and height in inches, then click calculate BMI.
Enter weight in kilograms and height in centimeters, then click calculate BMI.



BMI less than 18.5 = Underweight 

BMI of 18.5 - 24.9
= Normal

BMI of 25- 29.9
= Overweight

BMI of 30 - 34.9
= Class I Obesity

BMI of 35 - 39.9
 = Class II Obesity

BMI of 40 or Greater
= Class III Obesity 


Categorization of weight based on BMI is as indicated in the interpretation table to the right of the BMI calculator. Classification of obesity as class I, class II and class III is based on recent research comparing different weight categories with mortality or death rate. The results are surprising.
