BMI Calculator

The Body Mass Index is just one of the tools to identify the severity of obesity in an individual.It is used more for screening ,rather than diagnostic purposes.It estimates the total mass contributed both by fat and muscle in your body.

BMI in the normal range however doesnot always mean one is healthy.For e.g. one may have BMI in normal range with too less muscle mass and majority of fatty tissue.Also,it is not applicable to pregnant females and breast feeding mothers.
