BMI Calculator Chart (Underweight or Overweight Calculator)

 

(Refer to the BMI Calculator chart shown below.)
Both body fat percentage and BMI (body mass index) are estimates of the total fat mass (the percentage that is adipose tissue) versus the lean body mass, the muscle, bone, organs, blood etc.

The Body Fat percentage is considered to be the more reliable measure of excess body weight because it differentiates between muscle mass and fat mass while the BMI chart lumps all masses into one figure. The Body Fat Percentage method however is used less often as the equipment and skilled people required to perform the task is not as readily available.

Nonetheless you can use the Body Mass Index BMI Calculator chart below as a useful guide to determine correct weight for height.
