# How do you find your BMI?

The easiest way is with a BMI calculator or chart. You first need to know your exact measured weight and height. You can use metric or US measurements on most charts. These are available at different sites online. Good calculators (for adults and children) are available at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. See the related question in the related questions section for more information on finding BMI charts and calculators.

What is BMI? From the CDC:

"Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person's weight and height. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems."

As an alternative, you can mathematically calculate this yourself in various ways. Here are some methods provided by Answers.com contributors:

Divide this by your weight in kilograms.

This will give you your BMI.

take your weight, multiply by .45 then take your height in inches and multiply it by .025 then square the result. divide the product of your weight by the product of your height and youll get a number.

ex: weight: 100 lbs height: 67 inches.

100x.45= 45 and 67x.025=1.675 1.675x1.675=2.806

45 divided by 2.806= 16.037 which rounds to a BMI of 16.

The calculation for BMI is weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared.

kg/(Meters^2)

or you can just use a free calculator.

Use an online calculator or if not, these sums:

For Imperial

BMI = ( Weight in Pounds / ( Height in inches x Height in inches ) ) x 703

BMI = ( Weight in Kilograms / ( Height in Meters x Height in Meters ) )

BMI=weight in kilograms/(height in meters)2

# What are the exampleof body composition?

Body composition takes into account the body's type (male or female), the height, the weight, frame size and the proportion of the fat mass compared to the lean muscle mass. Body composition analysis can be done in several ways. The most common method is using a set of measurement calipers, which helps to measure the thickness of subcutaneous fat in different body parts like abs, arms, buttocks, and thighs. These measurements help to determine the total body fat. One of the excellent ways to assess the body composition is hydrostatic weighting, also known as underwater weighting. In this method a person is placed in a specially designed underwater tank to determine the body fat percentage. If more body fat is present, then the body floats and the less it weights in water. When this method is done properly, it gives accurate results. Read more on, body mass index.

What are Possible Exercises for Improving Body Composition?

# What does the ideal woman look like?

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!" If you love more than the physical part of a person and love their soul and heart that is worth more than anything.

I've heard so many men say, "She's good looking, but a perfect bimbo" or "She's a nice looking girl, but no personality." Personality is a big part of our chemistry.

My father told me this "Marcy, don't count on your looks all your life because looks fade and all that is left is what you've made of yourself inside." I've never forgotten that.

If you think it's physical you are in for a sad mistake. It's the total person and real love means not seeing the imperfections in the other person.

Gorgeous eyes, that make you stare at her.. slender legs, and a beautiful smile! Long gorgeous hair, curly or straight!

Breasts truly don't matter but they should stand out at least.

Wear just enough makeup to show yourself but not so much that you look like you're hiding something.

Wearing the right clothes for the right girl helps too..

Healthy! I mean it, beauty is really a measure of health. Bright eyes, white straight teeth, hourglass figure, shiny hair, smooth skin are all indicators of youth and health and are all considered beautiful. Of course so are smiles. Healthy inside and out will always be beautiful and net you complients like "vibrant" instead of the lesser "fashionable." Eat more fresh foods, spend time doing something you love and visit your nearest national park more frequently!

An hourglass figure!

A BMI of 25-30 would be considered to be in the overweight range, and therefore would carry a higher health risk.

# Is BMI an interval or ratio scale of measurement?

Ratio. It has a true zero.

# Can you have an average BMI and still be underweight?

Yes.

The BMI is only a measurement of your weight and your height relative to known health risk parameters.

If you have a very low body fat content (since fat weighs less than muscle) you may appear to be underweight even though you have a normal BMI.

# What are the ways in which you could maintain or achieve a healthy BMI range?

Exercise daily, watch your portion sizing and calorie intake. Also be aware of the types of food you are eating and the time. If you eat later at night it takes your body longer to digest, also remember to eat breakfats because it jump starts your metabolism. To find out how much you should be eating go to mypyramid.gov
