The body mass index, or BMI, helps clarify an important distinction between being overweight or being obese. If you weigh too much, you’re obviously overweight. But if you have a very high proportion of body fat, you’re obese. Based on your body mass index, your doctor or other health professional will classify your weight as healthy, overweight, or obese.
|Normal||18.5 till 24.9|
|Over||25 till 29.9|
|Obese||30 and more|
One of the most popular methods of measuring whether one is overweight is by using the Body Mass Index calculator (BMI) Calculating your approximate body mass index is relatively straightforward, although you’ll probably need a calculator just to save time.
