Body Mass Index (BMI)- Takes into consideration height and weight, and gives an indication of whether you’re overweight, obese, or in good shape. To calculate your BMI, multiply your weight in pounds by 703, and divide the number by your height in inches squared.
--200 X 703= 140,600
-- 72 X 72 = 5,184
-- 140, 600 / 5,184 = 27.1
- For example, if your hips measure 40 inches and your waist is 38 inches, your hip-to-waist ratio is 0.95.

English BMR Formula
Women: BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight in lbs.)
+ ( 4.7 x height in inches ) – ( 4.7 x age in years )
Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) +
( 12.7 x height in inches ) - ( 6.8 x age in year )
Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2
