Full Body Analysis Calculator

Calculate and show me many of the common health indicators.

This calculator combines the output from several individual calculators to give you a full body analysis. Quickly find out your BMI, waist to hip ratio, body frame size, ideal weight, body fat, RMR, calories burned, target heart rate, and maximum heart rate.

Field Help

Input Fields

Title: A title for these calculator results that will help you identify it if you have printed out several versions of the calculator.

US/Metric: Choose US or Metric units.

Gender: Select your gender.

Weight: Your current scale weight.

Height: Your height. Use feet (ft) and inches (in) if units is US or centimeters (cm) if units is Metric.

Age: Your current age.

Resting Heart Rate Average: Your one minute resting heart rate (RHR), averaged over 3 to 5 mornings. Use the ‘Resting Heart Rate Average Calculator’ to help calculate your average RHR then enter the resulting one minute number here. If that calculator is not available, use your index and middle fingers to find your pulse at the side of your neck or on your wrist before getting out of bed in the morning or after sitting down and relaxing for at least 5 minutes. Count the number of heart beats for 1 full minute. Do this for 3 to 5 mornings or days, calculate the average and enter your result here.

Waist (at narrowest): Your waist measurement at its narrowest point (usually right above the belly button).

Hip (at widest): Your hip measurement at its widest point.

Elbow Width: The width of your elbow. Hold your dominant arm straight out in front of you then bend your elbow 90 degrees, pointing your fingers straight up. Keep your fingers straight and hold your thumb towards you. From the under side of the bent arm, use calipers to measure the distance between the two prominent bones on either side the elbow. If you don’t have calipers, use your opposite thumb and index finger to find the two prominent bones of your bent elbow. Measure the distance between the thumb and index finger by carefully maintaining the distance and holding them against a tape measure or ruler.

Activity Level: Choose the level that best describes how active you are throughout an average day.

Fitness Goal: Choose the fitness goal closest to your actual goal.

Output Fields

Body Mass Index (BMI): Your approximate Body Mass Index (BMI), which is a representation of the amount of body fat. The lower the number the more toward underweight you tend to be; the higher the number the more toward overweight you tend to be.

BMI Classification: Your BMI weight classification. Some people have a higher than average amount of lean mass. BMI results will not be as accurate for those people.

Waist to Hip Ratio: Your waist measurement in proportion to your hip measurement. 100% means your waist and hips are the same measurement. Greater than 100% means your waist is thicker than your hips. Less than 100% means your hips are thicker than your waist.

Body Shape: Pear shaped bodies carry more weight around the hips; apple shaped bodies carry more weight around the waist.

Interpretation: Pear shaped bodies tend to be lower risk for heart disease than apple shaped bodies.

Body Frame Size: Your calculated frame size (Small, Medium, or Large).

Ideal Weight: Height and Frame Size are used to determine your Ideal Weight range.

Body Fat: The approximate percentage of your body’s mass that is made up of fat.

Lean Mass: The portion of your weight that is lean (not fat).

Resting Metabolism (RMR): Resting Metabolism (RMR) (also known as Basal Metabolism or BMR) is the minimum calories your body needs each day just to perform its most basic functions.

Average Actual Metabolism: The average number of calories you burn per day and per hour.

Karvonen Target Heart Rate (THR): Exercise at an intensity that will keep your heart rate within this range to best meet your fitness goal.

Maximum Heart Rate (MHR): Based on your age, this is your maximum heart rate. Even during high intensity exercise you should not let your heart rate go above this number.

  1. Possibly some users here don’t understand what a pear shape is. I have a 14 inch difference from hip to waist. Couple this with the fact that I am within the healthy weight listed for my height makes a large difference. IE: Pear shaped. You could have a 20 inch difference but be 100 lbs over weight. Does not make you a pear.

  2. I am a physician. I exercise 4-5 tiems a week, either gym 15 minutes or under-water aerobics. I cannot swim,. Until 2013 I was in active practice, Now see occcasional patients. I read 5 newspapers a day, am online 2-3 hours a day, eat well, feel about 40-50 psychologically. Read neurophysiology as a hobby, am writing my experiences during >70 years of practice. Dont. tell me I am too old for your calculation.
    Dr C.Shere…r. ps I wish you the same health.

  3. 6ft 176 pounds and it says I’m small ?? also I am 12 pounds under my max weight and it says “Increased risk of heart disease
    and other related conditions.” You can’t say I’m normal weight and active and then tell me I’m going to die.. Lol what junk.

  4. Not quite accurate with me. I’m quite underweight, but my frame is far from slight. I have the frame of a swimmer, with broad shoulders and strong bones. It says I have a small frame. I know I way too underweight but I can’t wrap my head around it. I am still far from small.

  5. The calculation used here is almost better than using the standard BMI calculation. The calculation does not compute for someone fit or in shape. Example for my frame size large, waist is 36, hip 38, elbow width 5.7 in. no one has ever said I was an apple with a 50 in chest. If your goal is to inform and educate people, maybe adding chest in the equation for a better read on someones condition might help. It would certainly make it appear you knew what you were educating people on instead of an outcome of someone fit saying “Another non informed site showing the same BMI calculation mistake.” And on women how could you even attempt to calculate a BMI on the majority of women without asking for chest size? As the heading says at the beginning – FULL Body Analysis Calculator.

  6. I have thyroid and my weight loss process is very slow. My body show results extremely slow. I am targeting to loose 7-8 kgs in next 3 months. Howevr, I am extremely apprehensive whether I will be able to achieve this target. Ca anybody help me out.
    Moreover, I am working-out 1 hour daily aroubd 4-5 days in a week.

  7. Nice calculator, i’ve gone from 22% body fat to 19% in 3 months (according to this) and i plan to keep going.

    I don’t understand people that gained 10 kg in 5+ years of unhealthy habits but want to lose them all in just 2-3 months, this feels horrible and will probably discourage you fast.

    I’m losing a steady 1.5-2 kg per month restricting my calorie intake to 1800 Cals/day which basically means no in-between meals snacks for me and less french fries (seriously, half the calories in a fast food menu are from the fries). When I go over 1800 (and i happens often) I go for 1h bike ride or jogging and i’m in the clear. (note: search for calorie calculator on your smartphone’s store to know how much you eat).

  8. Haha, I am NOT apple shaped! I am thin and look like a ruler! Just because I am athletic and don’t have a butt does not mean I am at risk for heart disease.

  9. Yeeeeah, 28% body fat doesn’t sound *quite* right. Was this calculated with a general age-weight-? formula? My recent tests said 30 to 35.
