A lot of people think they’re overweight even though they aren’t. Just because you don’t measure up to a supermodel doesn’t mean you’re bigger than you should be!
In fact everybody should have some body fat. The average man should expect his body fat to be 10 to 18 per cent of his bodyweight. The figure for women is higher, in fact 18 to 25 per cent of a woman’s bodyweight should be fat.
Calculate your BMI by entering your height and weight below and find out whether you are overweight? If the BMI-test shows that you are overweight (a BMI number exceeding 25) you should consider doing something about it for the sake of your health.
Please note: This test is meant as a guide only, and should not replace a visit to your doctor to discuss weight problems. The BMI test should not be used by body-builders as the weight of the extra muscles could interfere with the calculation.
To get the correct reading please ensure that you correctly set the unit of measurement for your weight.
