BMI
Calculator & WAIST CIRCUMFERENCE

What is the BMI?

The BMI is a simple tool used to ESTIMATE body fatness. However, it doesn't directly measure body fat.
It is calculated by using the ratio between your weight in kilograms and height in centimetres.

Who shouldn't use the BMI?

The BMI has its limitations and is not suitable for: anyone under 18, pregnant or lactating women, frail and sedentary elderly people, competitive athletes or body builders with higher levels of muscle mass.  If you fall under one of these categories, you should consult your healthcare professional about any concerns over weight.

Waist Circumference


Waist circumference is a good measure of fatness around your abdomen and is a useful tool for individuals. Carrying a large amount of fat around your middle or having a high waist cicumference is often an indicator that you're at risk of lifestyle-related conditions such as high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and abnormal blood sugar levels.
These in turn can increase your risk of developing diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some common cancers. 

How to Measure:

Using a tape measure, place it around your waist. Your waist is half way between the botton of your ribs and the top of your hips. This is normally around your belly button. However, for large people, just measure the widest part of your waist. As your waist circumference increases, your risk of health-related conditions also increases. 
 

Waist Circumference     Men     Women
Increased health risk    94cm +  80cm+  
Significant health risk  102cm+   88cm+  
 
What this means is that men should have a waist circumference less than 102cm but ideally less than 94cm. Women should have a waist cicumference less than 88cm but ideally less than 80cm.
