BMI (body mass index) Calculator:
The body mass index (BMI), or Quetelet index, is a measure for human body shape based on an individual's mass and height. 'BMI' provides a simple numeric measure of a person's thickness or thinness, allowing health professionals to discuss overweight and underweight problems more objectively with their patients. However, BMI has become controversial because many people, including physicians, have come to rely on its apparent numerical authority for medical diagnosis, but that was never the BMI's purpose; it is meant to be used as a simple means of classifying sedentary (physically inactive) individuals, or rather, populations, with an average body composition.
WHR (waist-to-hip ratio) Calculator
Waist–hip ratio or waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is the ratio of the circumference of the waist to that of the hips.
The WHR has been used as an indicator or measure of the health of a person, and the risk of developing serious health conditions. Research shows that people with "apple-shaped" bodies (with more weight around the waist) face more health risks than those with "pear-shaped" bodies who carry more weight around the hips.
Daily Energy Requirement Calculator:
Based on the Harris-Benedict equation (also called the Harris-Benedict principle). Is a method used to estimate an individual's basal metabolic rate (BMR) and daily calorie requirements. The estimated BMR value is multiplied by a number that corresponds to the individuals's activity level. The resulting number is the recommended daily calorie intake to maintain current body weight.
The equation assumes a normal body composition, with an average ratio of muscle mass to fat mass, so it may be inaccurate for individuals who are very muscular (the formula underestimates true requirements) or for individuals who are very fat (the equation overestimates true requirements).

Knowing your ideal body weight is the first significant step towards good health. Improper weight management leads to many lifestyle diseases.
