Basic Health Calculator
by: F.H. Lim • 3
Basic Health Calculator is a simple tool to measure your health status via several indexes, namely:
1) Body Mass Index (BMI)
2) Waist-to-Height Ratio (WHtR)
3) Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
4) Body Fat %
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple measure of a person's health status and is one of the most common health prediction tool used to date. Due to its simplicity, it came to be widely used for individual diagnosis.
However, BMI alone does not provide an absolute indication of one's health. Based on research, the Waist-to-Height ratio is able to provide a more accurate assessment for cardiovascular risks.
Coupled with the estimated Basal Metabolic Rate, you will be able to plan your diet and monitor your health on the go.
