BMI = 38
Your body mass index (BMI) is calculated as exactly 37.8 kilogrammes per square metre.
Your weight is at a very high level; in our view, it can cause serious health problems. By classification of the WHO, you are "obese".
SBMI = 65/70
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 65/70 or "65 points out of 70".
Your SBMI will decrease by about one point every two years if you manage to keep your 271 pounds stable. This is due to the fact that the optimal, i.e. the "healthiest" BMI range increases with age, thus reaching higher BMI values.
