FFMI, short for the Fat-Free Mass Index, is an alternative to body mass index (BMI) which accounts for a person’s muscle mass. Although the FFMI is less used, it is more precise than BMI, and also provides information about somebody’s condition and health.

FFMI formula

Fat-Free Mass (FFM) = weight [kg] × (1 − (body fat [%] / 100))

Fat-Free Mass Index (FFMI) = FFM [kg] / (height [m])2

Normalized Fat-Free Mass Index = FFM [kg] / (height [m])2 + 6.1 × (1.8 − height [m])

Interpreting FFMI

The following table shows what the FFMI means about the body condition. These scores provide useful guidelines to everyone who wants to know where they stand in terms of muscle mass:
