SBMI Chart

low moderate high very high health risk

This is what the SBMI chart of a women at 20 years of age, a height of 5 feet 3 inches and a weight of 104 pounds looks like, and below you can read the detailed report on BMI and the health that would apply for such a person.

BMI = 18

Your body mass index (BMI) is calculated as exactly 18.4 kilogrammes per square metre.

Health aspects

Your weight is at a marginally lower level; in our view, it still should still be fine for your health. By classification of the WHO, you are "underweight".

Being slim due to fitness is good for your health. In contrast, being slim or losing weight due to nicotine, or a reduced appetite, poor digestion or a serious disease would be a bad sign. Thus, your health prospects are excellent if you do not smoke and if your weight remains stable.

SBMI = 31/70

This assessment is based on the newly developed Smart Body Mass Index. Its ideal range is between 30/70 and 39/70.

Your Smart Body Mass Index (SBMI) is calculated as 31/70 or "31 points out of 70".

Weight stability

A stable weight at this level can be optimal but gaining some weight by building up muscle mass could be even better.

Weight management

Nutrition

Eat a variety of foods that you like, optimally including five servings of fruit and/or vegetables a day. Avoid eating too sweet, too fat and too much.

Physical activity

Do physical exercise at least for half an hour daily at moderate to vigorous intensity.

Important to know

This feedback can only be based on the inevitably limited extent of the data that you have entered here. This data has been evaluated by comparing it with the results of the most comprehensive study published so far on the BMI and its associated health risks.

The results and comments above can only give you an estimate that applies to all women at 20 years of age with a body mass index of 18, as a statistical group. They are non-personal. They should never replace medical advice.  Read more...
