Interpreting a Woman’s BMI
Are you wondering how to calculate a woman’s BMI? The formula for calculating the BMI does not depend on a person’s age or gender, but on their weight and height. The BMI - or body mass index - is used to assess a person’s build, and is only approximate. A BMI between 18.5 and 25 is considered normal.
Women and men do not gain weight in the same way, nor in the same places. A woman’s weight can also vary depending on their hormones (puberty, menopause) as well as on whether they are pregnant or not.
