# How Do You Calculate A Man's BMI?

To calculate the Body Mass Index all you need is your height and weight. You can calculate it using the Imperial BMI formula. Just multiply your weight (in pounds) by 703 and divide the entire result by your height in inches squared. This would give you you're BIM in kg/ m². The Metric method of calculating BMI requires you to input your weight in kilograms and your height in meters. Remember that one foot is the equivalent of 12 inches and one meter is the equivalent of 100 centimeters. The BMI is an indicator of where the person stands in terms of weight. In the case of men, if the BMI is said to be les that 20.7, you are generally underweight. Between 20.7 and 26.4 it is said to be normal while if it falls anywhere in between 26.4 to 45.4 is said to be obese. Anyone above that is said to be over weight.

The generic BMI Formula which does not account for gender is not as you have specified. The formula is:

Height in inches divided by 2(body weight in pounds) with the resulting value multiplied by 703.

Your method would underestimate the BMI by half as you did not double the bogy weight.
