Calculate Your BMI & BMR

The body mass index (BMI) is a measure that uses your height and weight to work out if your weight is healthy. The BMI calculation divides an adult's weight in kilograms by their height in metres squared. For example, A BMI of 25 means 25kg/m2.

Accuracy of BMI

BMI takes into account natural variations in body shape, giving a healthy weight range for a particular height. As well as measuring your BMI, healthcare professionals may take other factors into account when assessing if you're a healthy weight. Muscle is much denser than fat, so very muscular people, such as heavyweight boxers, weight trainers and athletes, may be a healthy weight even though their BMI is classed as obese. Your ethnic group can also affect your risk of some health conditions. For example, adults of Asian origin may have a higher risk of health problems at BMI levels below 25. You should not use BMI as a measure if you're pregnant. Get advice from your midwife or GP if you're concerned about your weight.

What is your BMR? And what does it mean?

Basal metabolic rate

What is it?

Even when resting, your body burns calories by performing basic functions to sustain life, such as:

  • Breathing
  • Circulation
  • Nutrient processing
  • Cell production

Basal metabolic rate is the number of calories your body needs to accomplish its most basic (basal) life-sustaining functions.

Why know your BMR?

What's it all about?

Your BMR can be used to help you gain, lose, or maintain your weight. By knowing how many calories you burn, you can know how many to consume. To put it simply:

  • Is your goal to maintain your weight? Consume the same number of calories that you burn.
  • Is your goal to gain weight? Consume more calories than you burn.
  • Is your goal to lose weight? Consume fewer calories than you burn.

Does BMR Change?

If so, how?

Your BMR is determined by a number of factors, including:

  • Sex
  • Weight
  • Height
  • Age
  • Ethnicity
  • Weight History
  • Body Composition
  • Genetic Factors

Of these factors, you can take steps to change your weight and body composition. So if you want to change your BMR, your first steps should be to lose weight and increase muscle.

2010 reviewTrusted Source indicated that resistance training can improve lean body mass composition and maintain fat mass reduction, increasing BMR.
