## BMI (Body Mass Index) is the best way of calculating your extra kilos and setting your ideal weight goal.

BMI is the ratio between your height and weight which is calculated as follows : your weight in kilos is divided by the square root of your height in meters, BMI = KG / M^2. Work out your BMI :

[[[["field3","greater_than","1"],["field4","greater_than","1"]],[["show_fields","field5,field6"]],"and"]]

An acceptable BMI is somewhere between 18.5 and 25. A woman would ideally aim for a BMI of around 18.5, a man one of around 25, the difference being due to muscle weight, which is generally higher in men.

Below are different interpretations of BMI established by the World Health Organisation :

 less than 16,5 Malnourished or Anorexic 16,5 to 18,5 Thin 18,5 to 25 Normal 25 to 30 Overweight 30 to 35 Moderately Obese 35 to 40 Severely Obese more than 40 Morbidly Obese
