Ideal BMI

The Body Mass Index for women (BMI) is calculated based on weight and height. However, BMI is not gender-specific. It is important to understand that a woman may have the same BMI as a man, but can have more body fat, since women tend to have more body fat than men in general. For that reason, a healthy body mass index for women is the same as for men.

While calculating a body mass index for women can be one good measurement of overall weight health, it should be considered along with other factors. Since some women tend to set unrealistically low weight goals, it is important not to obsess about a BMI number.

BMI value range for Women:
Underweight: Less than 19
Ideal weight:  19 – 24.9
Overweight:  25 – 30
Obese: 30 and up
