# What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

**Body Mass Index (BMI)** or **Quetelet index** plays an important role in figure out your weight, health and lifestyle choices. Body mass index is developed by Adolphe Quetelet in the 1900’s for evaluating body mass. Body mass index is not related to gender or age. BMI values are the same for men and women of all body types and ages.

**How is BMI used?**

In BMI formulas simply put your weight and height and calculate your BMI value. There are three sets of values used to determine body mass.

The standard weight status categories associated with BMI ranges for adults are shown in the following table

BMI (Body Mass Index) |
Weight Status |

Below 18.5 | Underweight |

18.5 – 24.9 | Normal or Healthy Weight |

25.0 – 29.9 | Overweight |

30.0 and Above | Obese |

**BMI Formulas: **

There are two type of formula used to calculate BMI value.

**Metric BMI Formula**

BMI = (Weight in Kilograms / (Height in Meters x Height in Meters))

**Imperial BMI Formula**

BMI = (Weight in Pounds / (Height in inches x Height in inches)) x 703

**How do I know if I’m underweight? **

If your BMI weight status is below then 18.5 than you’re in the category of underweight people. There are certain risks of being underweight such as slow wound healing, slow recovery from illness, high blood pressure and lack of period or fertility in females. If you’ve BMI score less than 18.5 or in between 18.5 – 20 then you required a more nutritional intake that helps you to gain weight and build strong immunity system in the body.
