CALCULATE YOUR BMI
The Body Mass Index (BMI) or Quetelet Index (Belgian scientist 1796-1874), after the name of its inventor, is an index that measures a person’s “ideal weight” based on their weight and height. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has defined this index as the standard for assessing the risks associated with adult obesity.
