What is BMI?

Body mass index, or BMI, is used to determine whether you are in a healthy weight range for your height.

It is useful to consider BMI alongside waist circumference, as waist measurement helps to assess risk by measuring the amount of fat carried around your middle.

BMI is a useful measurement for most people over 18 years old. But it is only an estimate and it doesn’t take into account age, ethnicity, gender and body composition. We recommend you also check your waist measurement and other risk factors.

Speak to your doctor, an Accredited Practising Dietitian or a health practitioner about your weight.

This calculator shouldn’t be used for pregnant women or children.

See your doctor or an Accredited Practising Dietitian if you are concerned about your weight or are losing weight without trying.
Your body mass index (BMI) is within the healthy range for your height. But we recommend that you also check your waist size.

Aim to maintain a healthy weight by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. Adults should get at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, if not all days.

As people age, their health may be more important than being slightly overweight. Researchers have suggested that a BMI range of 22-26 is acceptable for older Australians over 70.
We recommend you also measure your waist.

Being overweight increases your risk of developing coronary heart disease, as well as other health conditions. This risk can be reduced or eliminated by adopting a healthy weight and engaging in physical activity every day.

Individuals should consult their doctor and/or an Accredited Practising Dietitian for medical advice and/or specific dietary requirements.

We recommend you also measure your waist. As your BMI increases, your risk of developing coronary heart disease, as well as other health conditions, rises. Thus you should strive to reduce your weight. The good news is that even losing small amounts of weight can benefit your health. To lose weight, be physically active every day and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet that meets your energy needs.
