What is my Body Mass Index (BMI)?

Body Mass Index or BMI is a measure of whether you're a healthy weight for your height and is calculated by taking your weight in kilograms and dividing it by your height in metres squared (kg/m2). Some of our studies may ask for volunteers in a certain BMI range. You can calculate yours at NHS healthy weight calculator.
