The Body Mass Index is a useful way of establishing whether your weight is within a healthy range. In order to calculate your BMI, you need to know how tall you are(height in cm) and your weight(in kg). If you are already pregnant, enter your weight before you conceived.
Please note: this BMI calculator is designed for adults only. It cannot be used to calculate a child's BMI. A BMI reading between 18.6 and 24.9 is normally considered healthy. BMI over 25 is considered over weight and when the index is over 30 it is considered obese. BMI below 18 is considered under weight. BMI calculation is based on a formula by Belgian polymath Adolphe Quetelet.
Body Frame Type
Between the 1950s and 1980s, frame size was considered to be a key factor in determining the best weight for an individual. Your body frame size is basically the size and density of your bone structure. You are born with a certain structure and, for the most part, it cannot be changed, so a number of health care specialists believed it should be considered in determining a person’s ideal weight.There are 3 types of body frames: small, medium and large. Frame size is based on one of the following methods.
Easiest way to find the frame type is by following procedure. Put your pointer finger and thumb on your wrist, wrap it around, if they touch and overlap, you're small framed, if they just meet, you're medium framed and if they don't touch at all, you're large framed. But accuracy of this method is questioned.
So Elbow breadth method is used to determine the frame type. This method also takes the input of Height and gender to determine the Body Frame type. You can become fat or thin ,but your elbow breadth (which is more bone-skin, not fat-muscle) remains same, compared to wrist measure which may be very difficult to measure especially if the person is above normal weight. Obesity Ganaka uses the elbow method to determine the type of body frame.

Total Water in your body
In medicine, body water is all of the water content of the human body. A significant fraction of the human body is water. Gutyon's Textbook of Medical Physiology states that "the total amount of water in a man of average weight (70 kilograms) is approximately 40 liters, averaging 57 percent of his total body weight. In a newborn infant, this may be as high as 75 percent of the body weight, but it progressively decreases from birth to old age, most of the decrease occurring during the first 10 years of life. Also, obesity decreases the percentage of water in the body". Obesity Ganaka provides the percentage of water in your body using Watson formula for Adults and Mellits-Cheek formula for kids.
