BMI Calculator for NZ
We understand that monitoring your weight is important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, which is why we have created this tool to help you calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI).
What is BMI?
BMI stands for Body Mass Index, and it is a measurement that assesses the relationship between your weight and height. It is commonly used to determine if someone is underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese. It is important to note that BMI is not a perfect measurement and should be used in conjunction with other methods to assess overall health.
Using the BMI Calculator
To use the BMI Calculator, simply input your weight in kilograms and your height in centimetres. The calculator will then display your BMI score along with the corresponding weight category.
- Underweight: BMI below 18.5
- Normal weight: BMI between 18.5 and 24.9
- Overweight: BMI between 25 and 29.9
- Obese: BMI above 30
What does my BMI score mean?
Your BMI score can give you an idea of whether you are at a healthy weight or if you need to make changes to your lifestyle. It is important to note that BMI does not take into account other factors such as muscle mass or body composition, which may affect your overall health.
If your BMI score falls into the overweight or obese category, it may be a good idea to speak with a healthcare professional about ways to improve your overall health. This may include changes to your diet, exercise routine, or other lifestyle factors.
At Calorie NZ, we believe that knowledge is power, and tracking your BMI is just one way to stay informed about your health. Be sure to check out our other resources and tools, including our Calorie Tracker, to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
