Body Mass Index

The body mass index takes into account height and weight and is not dependent on gender. Although the body mass index does not take into account percentage of body fat, many argue that it is the best measure that doesn't rely strictly on body fat.

The body mass index is calculated by dividing an individual's weight (kg)by the individual's height (meters squared). The formula is: weight (kg)/height squared (m2).
