The weight percentile below, uses Dr.Halls' own algorithm on population data. A unique Halls.md feature!

(This is your Weight Percentile, compared to other Americans)

If at 50th percentile, you are close to average weight.
At 90th percentile, your weight is greater than 90% of others.
At 20th percentile, then 80% of others weigh more than you.

Body Mass Index (BMI) can be used to indicate if you are overweight, obese, underweight or normal. It will, however, overestimate fatness in people who are muscular or atheletic. Because of these problems, this body mass index calculator shows extra statistics to help you be informed and judge your own body compared to others of the same height and age. Also offered are average weight and height charts and Body Mass Index charts, which show data you just can't find anywhere else.

Women tend to believe they look their best at values between 20 to 22 and men are usually satisfied with a BMI of 23 to 25. If your BMI is between 17 to 22, your life expectancy is longer than average. You don't need to lose weight.

If your BMI is between 23 and 25, you are not considered overweight by most people. But if your BMI is 26 or more, that's not good. But you knew that already.

Above all, Don't Worry, Be Happy. It's unhealthy to have anxiety over a less-than-perfect body image. And, if this calculator's description of your body seems wrong for you, just trust your own judgment. A healthy mental attitude is just as important as physical fitness.


Hi there! I'm Dr. Halls, a real person, a radiologist with a long-time academic interest in body composition and weight issues.

The Moose is my software, a 3D talking character on your computer, at the Talking Moose project website.

For years, people have been asking me to do something important for helping with weight loss. Good ideas are finally shaping up. I'm preparing a whitepaper on the importance of getting enough sleep, and after that, I'll have one on coming out on how your brain neurochemistry can be improved so that mood, sociability, motivation and weight loss all improve in sync, by simple things you will learn from the Moose.

And because I'm a doctor with a research background, I'm planning some research trials to measure the effectiveness scientifically. I'll be submitting the trials to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, for research ethics board approval, and then I can open it up for volunteer participants. It's Moose-related research where the Moose's humor is bedrock reason for likability, trust and acceptance, and then the Moose's sleep powers-of-suggestion and neuro-linguistic Weight loss affirmation will be the true benefit.

I'm really excited to be able give this away for free. It's good karma, a pay it forward philosophy. I'm going to need to figure out how to get his webpage to automatically get the email addresses of people who are interested, but in the meantime, feel free to email me.
