BMI Origins

Body Mass Index Prime is method of using the results of the BMI calculations to quickly and easily rank a person into a category. Eg:
  • BMI Prime less than 0.74 = Underweight.
  • BMI Prime greater than 0.74 and less than 1.00 = Optimal weight.
  • BMI Prime greater than 1 = Overweight
b m i Prime is a variation of the Quetelet index. Put simply, if you have a Prime of less than 0.74, you are underweight. If your prime is more than 0.74 and less than 1.00, your weight is ideal. If your bmi prime is more than 1 you are down as being overweight.

Do the sums

Behind BMI
  • BMI = weight(kilograms) / height2 (metres2)         (Metric Units)
  • BMI = 703 . weight(pounds) / height2 (inches2)         (Imperial Units)

BMI limitations

BMI is proportional to the mass and inversely proportional to the square of the height. So, if all body dimensions double, and mass scales naturally with the cube of the height, then BMI doubles instead of remaining the same. This results in taller people having a reported BMI that is uncharacteristically high, compared to their actual body fat levels.
