Use a BMI Chart to Answer the Question "What is My BMI?"

In order to answer the question, "What is my BMI?" it is often useful to use a BMI chart.

It is important to remember that BMI is only an approximation of your body composition and should not be used by itself. It is important to consider your body composition in addition to your body mass index when assessing your health.

The first chart below plots your weight across the horizontal axis, with pounds across the top, and, if you prefer, kilograms across the bottom. Your height is plotted on the vertical axis with meters on the left and feet/inches on the right.

The second set of charts provides numerical values for your body mass index to help you answer "What is my BMI?"
