To determine your BMI (body mass index):

  1. Find your height on the side (in metres on the left and in feet on the right) and draw a horizontal line across the chart.
  2. Find your weight (in kilograms across the bottom of in pounds across the top) and draw a vertical line across the chart.
  3. The shaded area where the 2 lines meet is your BMI.



Health Canada provides an online BMI calculator.
