A lot of people are obese now and it could affect their health seriously . Obesity has proven by the medical experts to be a one of the main factors that brings many adverse medical problems, including the the heart disease. If your BMI is more than 30, you are considered obese. You can refer to the following range of BMI values for your weight status.
- Underweight = <18.5
- Normal weight = 18.5-24.9
- Overweight = 25-29.9
- Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater
In order to calculate your BMI, you do not have to consult your doctor, you could just use a calculator or a home made computer program, this is exactly what I am showing you here. The BMI calculator is a Visual Basic program that can calculate the body mass index, or BMI of a person based on the body weight in kilogram and the body height in meter. BMI can be calculated using the formula weight/( height )2, where weight is measured in kg and height in meter. If you only know your weight and height in lb and feet, then you need to convert them to the metric system (you could indeed write a VB program for the conversion).
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Label4.Caption = BMI(Text1.Text, Text2.Text)
Private Function BMI(height, weight)
BMIValue = (weight) / (height ^ 2)
BMI = Format(BMIValue, "0.00")
