The calculation of the body mass index is based on a height of 6 feet 6 inches (198 cm) and a weight of 190 pounds (86.2 kilogrammes). New calculation?
BMI = 22
Your body mass index (BMI) is calculated as exactly 22.0 kilogrammes per square metre.
Your weight is at a level that, in our view, should be good for your health. By classification of the WHO, you are "normalweight".
The label "ideal" has often been applied to this. Whether it is ideal for your health, or not, depends on many factors. Fit people may be slim, but smokers or persons who have lost weight due to poor health, may also be slim.
SBMI = 32/70
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 32/70 or "32 points out of 70".
Your weight level is best if it remains stable.
This is no issue for you, luckily. But you may want to consider some suggestions that are well-advised, not only for weight reasons.
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.
You have never been on a specific diet
Well done. The best diet is "no diet", as long as the body is getting a well-balanced, mainly plant-based mix of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, vitamins and enough, but not too much energy.
Do physical exercise at least for half an hour daily at moderate to vigorous intensity. Walking or cycling may be better for your joints than jogging.
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 men at 58 years of age with a body mass index of 22, as a statistical group. They are non-personal. They should never replace medical advice. Read more...
